KIRUNA, Sweden (AP) - Gunde Svan of Sweden, the world’s leading cross- country skier, won a 30-kilometer race Sunday by one minute and 31 seconds to cap a brilliant weekend in the final major meet of the season.

His winning time was 1 hour, 17 minutes and 32 seconds.

The 23-year-old Swede, a double gold medalist in last year’s Winter Olympics and a two-time winner in the Nordic Ski World Championships three months ago, also won Friday’s 15-K. He finished the season with 25 victories, tops in the world.

ROUBAIX, France (AP) -Marc Madiot of France won the 83rd edition of the punishing Paris-Roubaix cycling classic on Sunday, beating countryman and teammate Bruno Wojtinek by more than a minute.

Ireland’s Sean Kelly was third, edging American Greg Lemond in the final sprint through the Roubaix Velodrome.

Madiot became only the second Frenchman to win the difficult one-day race -characterized by brutal terraine and cold spring weather - since Louison Bobet did it in 1956. France’s Bernard Hinault was victorious here in 1981.

The 165-mile race was run in the teeth of high winds and under frequent chilly showers from Paris north through winding muddy country roads and over uneven cobblestone streets.

Italian star Francesco Moser broke out of the pack 56 miles from the finish line, holding the lead for the next 28 miles until he was caught and passed by Eric Vanderaerden of Belgium.

Thirteen miles from the end, Vanderaerden was, in turn, passed by a small group of riders headed by Madiot, the eventual winner.

Madiot was timed in seven hours, 21 minutes and 10 seconds for an average speed of 22.4 mph. Wojtinek was clocked in 7:23:07. Kelly was timed in 7:23:19 and Lemond in 7:23:19.
