Madshus racer  Hans Christer Holund (NOR) had the third fastest qualifier time at the roller ski season opener Oslo Ski Show in Holmenkollen, Norway, last Thursday.

The event opened with a qualifier, and then proceeded with heats, and concluded with a pursuit based on the qualifier and heats. The Olympic medalist from the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea was tenth in the final, which consisted of five 2.1-kilometer laps in Holmenkollen.

Oslo Ski Show is an annual fundraiser for children with cancer, initiated by the Norwegian national team athletes.
