Therefore Norway did not really push that hard to make it an individual race. IF they really wanted, they could have had an individual start.
Yep, he is horrible in Individual start.
Yehaa!!!!!!! I knew he had a chance.
He started hard. Followed on the second lap, and then fought through the last round. I think alot of guys were mentally discourage by the strong early times he showed.
