The Olympics v a WC event in ruka is hardly the same.So Norwegians are actually going to start now?!
Wow, I never expected such a dangerous decision from them, I thought they were worried about the health of their athletes and would withdraw like they did in Ruka.
True dat. But if that unfortunate scenario plays out, at least the distance brigade will always have the excuse that the distance was only 30k.Would has gone mad when it's the British that are hardier than the Scandinavians.
I don't want him to, but if Klaebo wins because of the shorter stage this thread is going to be hilarious.
I woke up thinking that I would catch the race around the mid point but this is kind of shocking. However I think this plays into Bolshunov's hands even more as it will be more difficult to Holund, Spitsov and co to drop him and Klæbo will likely be dropped anyway. Watch out for Maltsev too, this distance should be really good for him too and he is a fast finisher.the race now had to be postponed by an hour and shortened to 30k
Their golden boy is getting destroyed anyway, so it won't matter.Jochen Behle is furios about the decision on Eurosport.
Guys have been specifically preparing for this Race and then Fis Just shortens the race. But not only that, they also take away the hardest climb. And why? Because Norwegians and their pretty boy dont' t like the conditions.
Sadest day in XC skiing history.
Changing skis in these conditions is pointless. When it is that dry and cold skies easily make it for 30km withouht s significan drop Off.Can Bolshunov afford to change skis?
Holund will be having a chat with Krueger tonight, attacking just as he was about to get back on.
