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.

Okay i 'veto admit, epic performance bei Northug today, he really gave it 100%. Hands down.
However, really really strange race with some huge gaps.
Seems like picking the right skies was a real art today.

Gaps were really big today.
Haven't seen that kind of gaps in a mens 15km race in a very long time.
1990es types of gaps.

Northug started out furiously, and he took the most out of his body to fight like that. Amazing.

Great race from the last couple of years best male skier!
Now I am looking forward to watch the kazakh superman Poltaranin crush everyone in the 50km

Every single classic 50km mass start has been a horrible horrible borefest. Even worse then in freestyle.
I'd love to see Poltoraninen light up the race, but i am 99% sure it will again come down to a 2km sprint of a 40 guys bunch
