Another issue is the narrow trail leading up to the climb. The initial part of the race is easy. They have to ski the stadium loop which is only a km or so, but then they head on that flat part where there's barely room for two people side by side, and if there is little snow, then there may not be any room to pass before the final climb starts. The fighting for position will start in the stadium area. After that if you are a contender or someone that wants to try and win the stage, you better hope you are at or near the front. The mass start suits Klaebo to a T. He'll be near the front, he can draft off of others and then for the hill climb he'll still have someone near him to pace off of. He won't worry from others chasing him.The start of the climbs is Not that steep, wide and pretty Straight Forward. So there will be a bunch sprint for position there. These will have the effect that They will already be cooked when they enter the steep part. There will be ugly Pictures.
