Ben Sim has hit the northern winter season in great shape, scoring two impressive results in the Beitosprinten last weekend. Sim was 35th in the 15km Freestyle and 42nd in the 10km Classic, finishing each race just over two minutes behind the Norwegian winners Petter Northug and Martin Sundby, both of whom are potential World Cup winners in the coming weeks. In addition to the strong Norwegian fields the national teams of Switzerland, Slovakia, Japan, Italy, Russia and the USA were competing. Sim's performances caught the attention of spectators and other athletes in Beitostolen, and bode well for the World Cup coming up next weekend on the same track.
