Swedes Fredrik Kessiakoff (Siemens Cannondale) and Anna Enocsson (Ghost Team) took the honors in last weekend’s World Cup marathon in Falun, Sweden.
Kessiakoff won a five-way sprint to take his win while Enocsson put a comfortable nine–minute gap on second place for hers. Enocsson pulls herself within 85 points of Marathon World Cup Series leader and countrywoman Daniela Louis with only the marathons in Saint-Wendel (Germany) and Roc d'Azur (France) left in the season.
Kessiakoff has only contested two World Cup marathons so far in 2005 so his win does nothing to affect the overall standings in the men’s series. Italians Mauro Bettin and Dario Acquaroli sit at the top of the standings separated by almost ninety points.
