There are very few who can match Neuner for ski time. However, there is always the possibility of Neuner making an error in the shoot, especially standing. Yes, Berger needs a bit of look vis-à-vis poor shooting performances from Neuner, Kuzmina AND Kaisa, but she has the skiing measure of the others who start ahead of her, so I wouldn't write her out of it just yet. She's still a definite threat to at least get a medal.cartman said:Berger was 37 seconds slower than Neuner in ''skiing time.'' Need to step it up a notch to have a chance tomorrow I'd say.
Yeah, apparently he got some pants in a knot across the border.Tyler'sTwin said:How about the Golden Boy's finish in the relay? Beastly and arrogant as ****! Northug in a nutshell!
Oh I forgot Vyleghzanin. He has a good kick though so he doesn't necessary have to go very early on. But he seems to have a really good form so he's one to watch.cartman said:I'd definately think Harvey and Manificat will have a go at it. Vylegzhanin as well, he's looked good on the duathlon and the relay. Legkov was terrible yesterday, so I guess he's one that we wont see anything from. What do you think about Jauhojärvi or any of the other Finns, think they'll go for it?
He didn't get the chance, he got another bronze, behind Martin Fourcade and Emil Hegle Svendsen. The three of them and Arnd Peiffer were clearly the class of the field, finishing a minute up on everybody else, Fourcade doing so despite an extra miss!cartman said:Yeah, apparently he got some pants in a knot across the border.
Personally i found it OTT, but it's good to see that most of the teams brushed it off. (With the exception of Germany) Would be cooler if he demolished them in 'Hellnerbakken' and did a Dæhlie 360 or backwards at the line. Think he could've pulled it off, Hellner didn't look too good and Angerer wouldn't have been able to follow either. He certainly showed once more that he's got awesome power.
Earlier today I read that Tarjei Bø is going to take a 360 as a tribute to Northug if he gets the chance to at the pursuit. I'll be watching Tarjei.
Fourcade is in really good shape it seems. I think we might get a repeat of the Björndalen/Poiree rivalry between Fourcade and Svendsen/Bö in the years to come.Libertine Seguros said:He didn't get the chance, he got another bronze, behind Martin Fourcade and Emil Hegle Svendsen.

Perl had an injury, he still can't go in classical style. That's why he sat out the 15km and 30km races. He said he is pain-free in freestíle so he could show something today.Nastyy said:Cologna has been disappointing as well. Wonder what has happened to him and Perl. Both were looking good in the last World Cup races.
They've been camping there for two weeks now. The first people started showing up over a week before the competitions started to reserve the best spots.Scirea said:Btw these Norwegian people are crazy. Slept beside the court to get good places, madness. I respect them though.
