That's why i would make the 50km the skiathlon, though. At least clasic specialsts would maybe do something and fire up the race.
Yet the Oslo 50k contains 1998m of climbing, so not exactly an easy route. Actually among the hardest, I reckon.
Hope they pop Northug. Didnt look too good. And man, Bauer and classic skiing, such an eyecandy.
The Russians are driving it, Petter almost through the door. Bad day? Too bad this isn't a TT.
Or bad skis? Maybe excessive grip, as he can seemingly run up the climbs but not glide.
