Norway’s top cross country skier Petter Northug, who has not competed this season, after he was declared overtrained a few weeks ago, will participate in the Norwegian Cup Saturday.

Following tests last weekend, which showed he was back in form, he is back in training, and will race the 30km classic style on Saturday and most likely also the 10km freestyle on Sunday, NRK reports.

The hope is that he will also participate in the Sprint World Cup in Düsseldorf on December 11th and 12th.
