Tour de Ski - Stage 4 cancelled due to severe weather

 

Today's 4th stage of the Veissmann FIS Tour de Ski performance by Le Gruyère has been cancelled due to severe weather.  Heavy rain and strong winds made the competition course not safe for the athletes.  The competition has halted after the ladies' prologue before the men began.  The ladies' sprint qualification times will not count towards the Tour de Ski but will count for FIS points.  

 

Discussions continue between the FIS Jury and the local Organizing Committee in Oberstdorf, regarding damage to the courses to be used from tomorrow's mass start competitions.

I've been wondering that since the beginning :p (I know the races count for the World Cup as well, but I'd say it might be easier/better readable to keep it simple there and focus the Tour de Ski things in the Tour de Ski thread :p ) 

 

I started thinking it was a rule, so joined for a moment in this game of posting it in two threads :d

Heidi, what? :facepalm:

 

Yap, after seeing the slow motion, Weng's bitchiness towards Oestberg is completely justified. :lol:

Just now, heywoodu said:

Miriam Neureuther (Gössner) will quit biathlon and focus only on cross-country from now on. "I've never been the best shooter and nowadays you basically need to shoot clean...especially being a mom, I simply don't have the time that I need to improve my shooting, but I still have a lot of fun skiing, so I'm going to focus on that."

 

How is this exactly related to current TdS? :p

 

Damn, these threads are getting confusing. :d
