His best World Cup finish in 2008 was second in two in 4 x 10 km events.

Richardsson also competed at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2009 in Liberec, finishing sixth in the 4 x 10 km, 20th in the 15 km, and 31st in the 50 km events.

On 14 July 2013, Richardsson 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.
