      It was another chilly, snowy day in Gallivare, Sweden, as Day 2 of the Premiaren got under way with 10 and 15k classic, interval start races.


      Charlotte Kalla of Sweden picked up her 2nd win of the weekend with a 17 second win over Russia's Yulia Tchekaleva and another Russian Natalia Nepryaeva was 3rd.

      Canada's sole entry was Emily Nishikawa who finished 51st out of 69 finishers.

      The Russians put in another dominant performance, sweeping the podium with Alexander Bolshunov, Maxim Vylegzhanin and Alexey Chervotkin. They placed 7 in the top 10 and 14 in the top 20.

      Devon Kershaw led the way for Canada in 20th, the 6th non-Russian, a bit over a minute off the lead. Graeme Killick finished 50th, with Jack Carlyle 91st and Brian McKeever 110th.
