Pendrel came in 21 seconds before Russian Irina Kalentieva. Lea Davison from USA came in third.
– I tried to ride as I normally do, and said to myself that this was not an ordinary World Championship run. It felt fantastic to win and I feel so good, Pendrel said after the race.
– I want to thank for all the support here, it gave me so much energy.
Best Norwegian was Gunn Rita Dahle Fleså that took a 9th place. She was constantly on 6th or 7th place the three first laps, but lost two the last round.
– This was the hardest day this whole season, Gunn Rita said after the race.
