BOZEMAN, Mont. -- Newcomer Mats Rudin Resaland paced the Lobo Nordic team, capturing the men's 15K mass start classic race at the FIS Super Tour World Cup Qualification race on Sunday at Bohart Ranch in Bozeman, Mont.

Resaland, a native of Kongsberg, Norway, was part of a pack of seven competitors that pulled away from the rest of the racers early on and battled almost the entire race. Resaland separated from the group at the end, finishing the course in 47:02.76 to top last year's NCAA Men's 20K Classic Champion (Miles Havlick, Utah) and Runner Up (David Norris, Montana State). He also defeated the 2012 RMISA Freestyle and Classical Regional Champion, Rune Oedegaard of the University of Colorado and several other top American skiers.
