Any idea why Colombia is not competing at the World Cup in Norway? :( 

 

Probably not making the difference anyway. Causil will be looking to qualify by time, so his important races will be Calgary/Salt Lake. And there is no mass start at this stage for the other Colombian.

12:56.62 for Hoogeveen in the B division in Stavanger, right, that's fast :d

12:53.63 for Davide Ghiotto :d 

 

Of course, it's in the B division so it's easier to go faster because they start with 4 per race instead of 2 (on opposide sides of the track), but still, that's impressive.

very good result by Ghiotto...good 8 seconds better than his old PB (13.01, when he was 5th in the World Champs in Gangneung last Spring)...

not bad also the 13.05 by Giovannini and to be noticed also the 1min13secs improvement by Bugari (this is his first season of real committment to speedskating on the ice, he comes from roller skating as almost all our guys)...

How can they decide 10000m by time when B division has an advantage? :facepalm:

There is more drag for them.
