Hanne Wiberg Rofstad from Byåsen IL and Gjøran Tefre from Førde IL won the prologue in the skating sprint during the Norwegian Cup at Nes on Friday morning.

Rofstad won with a margin of over two seconds to Amalie Håkonsen Ous, while the elite national team’s Julie Myhre had the third best time.

Among the boys, Terfre was just over a second faster than Magnus Øyaas Håbrekke, while Sivert Wiig had the third best time.

A new format was run in the prologue on Friday morning. In contrast to the current arrangement where each runner runs a prologue, is ranked in time and the 30 fastest runners go on to heats and finals, two prologues will now be run so that everyone gets two chances to qualify.
