Heidi Weng dominated from start to finish at Toppidrettsveka (NOR) last weekend.

Weng (NOR) took home three out of four victories as well as a second place, while fellow Madshus racer Didrik Toenseth (NOR) bagged one victory and one second-place finish. The annual international endurance- and roller ski festival routinely attracts a race field worthy of a World Cup to the Northwest coast of Norway.

Weng started out her run for the podium with a second place in the uphill running race “Fonna Opp” on Thursday morning, a brutal hill climb featuring almost 650 meters elevation gain over 5.3 kilometers. Then she continued the day with winning the roller ski sprint in the afternoon.

On Friday, Weng won the roller ski duathlon, and on Saturday, she capped off the race weekend with a third victory as she won the pursuit.

Toenseth opened his three-day race weekend by winning the uphill running race on Thursday morning, and then capped off his race week with a second place in the pursuit on Saturday.

Additionally, Madshus racers Noah Hoffman (USA) was third in the uphill running race, and Barbro Kvaale (NOR) was third in the roller ski sprint on Thursday.
