The first World Cup round of 2019 was held close to and in Helsinki in the beginning of June (8th-11th) with Middle Distance, Chasing start and Sprint Relay on the program. The weekend was the first warm days of the summer and we came from 15 degrees in Norway to 30degrees in Finland. The Middle Distance was therefore a tough race, but I did what I could to deal with the heat, and ran a stable technical race until the 2nd last control, which I search at least 1minute and ended on a 22nd place in the end. In the chasing the day after I felt tired and my whole race I was within a group and ended 26th. The last race was a sprint relay held in the city center of Helsinki with a great arena and lots of people. I ran leg 1 for Norway 1, and my race was good except a small mistake on the 3rd last control and I changed over in the big group behind Sweden 1. My team (Kasper Fosser, Gaute Steiwer and Ingeborg Eide) ran well and we were in the medal fight all the way, and got a strong 4th place.
