The Norwegian Johan Bugge today showed all how to perform strongly at the Smarna Gora. It was the final act of the mountain running World Cup and didn't disappoint the high expectations. This morning on the hill of Saint Mary in the north of the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana over 160 athletes competed on 10 km of trails that had two challenging climbs interrupted by a short but steep and technical descent. This part once again made a big difference to the result.
