The Swedish marathon champion wins the women’s elite Birkebeinerittet MTB race by an overwhelming margin.

She finished the 86km race in a time of 3:06:20 with a two-minute lead on her opponents. Jennie was able to shake off the road expert, Ingrid Lorvik.
“I was able to take home the first sprint prize and Ingrid was the only one to follow,” explains Stenerhag after the Birkebeinerittet MTB Race .
“I was really nervous in the morning, even though I am starting to think that the more nervous I am, the better it will go,” says Jennie.
