Heidi Weng has loved racing all her life. When she was 13, her family bought a cabin in Gausdal, in an area with gorgeous grooming and optimal skiing conditions. More and more, she focused her racing on cross-country skiing. Her last season as a junior, she raced only senior-level races with the hope of qualifying for the World Cup team. She did. Weng rates the 3rd place in the World Cup 10km classic in Lahti 2013 as her best race to date. "It was the first time I made the podium in a WC interval start race. But it was the feeling during the race that makes this event so special. I felt like I could ski fast and almost effortlessly," she recalls.
