Cross-Country Skiing 2017 - 2018 Discussion Thread

Apparently FIS is thinkingabout throwing skiathlon out of the big events and introducing biathlon-alike pursuit instead.

 

All for the urban generation, of course.

I mean, pursuits are fine for stage races, but not for stand-alone races and most certainly not for medal events. It's already unfair enough to have the biathlon pursuit as Olympic medal event, don't start this with cross-country as well.

Wow, this was a very cool mass start roller ski race in Bogota. :d

:MEX:COL:POR:TGA all finished within 300 FIS points. :yikes:

 

Three more mass starts are scheduled. Hopefully there won't be any big breakaways that would prevent everyone from finishing below 300. :d:cheer:

Mery Kayrouz of Lebanon is back :d 

You know, one of the two Lebanese women who was a teeny tiny bit behind in the 5k qualifying race at last season's world champs (15 minutes).

Click on the 'OdP sprint' file for today's sprint start list. Also, Manikala Rai of Nepal will be there, and a Lebanese guy.

Too bad the Lebanese didn't go to Bogota! :p

 

Meanwhile, it seems like :KGZ should qualify in cross.country this time, as their athlete competed successfully in that OdP sprint..

Apparently he is a businessman living in Salt Lake City, and also a squash player. :lol: I guess it's possible that someone has a same name, but come on, what are the odds? :p

 

Something tells me that he is the mastermind behind these Bogota races. :d
