|World Cup career|
His best World Cup finish in 2008 was second in two in 4 x 10 km events.
On 14 July 2013, Rickardsson and a friend were involved in a traffic accident, after their car had had a punctured tyre. As they stood by the car at the side of the road, they were hit by a recreational vehicle, the driver of which apparently failed to observe them in time. Rickardsson suffered ligament injuries and bruises, but his friend was killed.
At the 2014 Winter Olympics Rickardsson won bronze at the 15 km classical and helped Sweden win gold in the relay.
