Petter Northug avsluttet årets sesong med seier i det 50 kilometer lange Fossavatn Ski Marathon på Island.

Han spurtslo Runar S. Mathisen på oppløpet.

Langrennsstjernen hadde god kontroll da han staket først over mål.

– Min første seier på Island. Det smaker godt, sa Northug til sin egen TV-kanal etter rennet.

– Det var vind og kaldt. Jeg så ikke lyst på det halvveis, men så kom vi heldigvis inn i en dal. Da ble det bedre.

– Etter hvert ble jeg så sliten at jeg ikke merket hvor kaldt det var. Jeg prøvde å gå fra, men hadde ikke noe å gi. Jeg var sliten, la trønderen til.

Northug var likevel tilfreds med seieren.

– Det kjennes bra å avslutte sesongen med seier. Jeg har aldri gått skirenn så sent på året før.

– Nå har jeg én start på Island, og én seier. Hundre prosent uttelling, sa Northug smilende.
