    And that's a first South American title for the Norwegian-Chilean Sebastian Endrestad, winning the freestyle sprint ahead of Basque-Brazilian Manex Silva and full Brazilian Victor Santos. Cesar Baena of Venezuela, who went public with his non-stop complaints about the qualifying system, was there as well, one and a half minute behind the fastest time in the three-minute qualifying.

    Convincing fastest time in qualifying for @brunamoura, but a tactical mistake in the final cost her the win: never go into a long downhill first, especially with the wind coming from the front. Ceci Dominguez of Argentina and Brazilian Duda Ribera passed her out of the slipstream, Duda took the win. It's fine, qualifying is the main thing in the Olympic battle anyway (at least according to the Brazilian federation's own criteria at the moment).

    Pretty common in North America. 2018 US Olympic trials had only four participants in the women's 5000m and two participants (including a 53 year old) in the men's 10000m.

    Most of their PB's were skated on the significantly faster Salt Lake City though. Times like these (and Weidemann's 6:46.81 5km record of last night) halfway in October are incredible though. Either a great sign, or a sign of peaking way too hard, way too early, time will tell

    Just some nuance for people not actually clicking the link and only reading the post (if anyone is even still reading a cynical thread like this, hopefully this cynical nonsense will stay out of the actual competition threads once the season gets underway...): there were potentially legitimate explanations for it, related to the menstrual cycle, but those were sadly not investigated further by FIS. Just to clarify that it wasn't like "Oh yeah, you used nandrolone, but whatever".
  13. Wow!

    The Dutch European champions won't be competing in Roubaix, since the Netherlands didn't send anyone to any Nations Cup and thus is not allowed to compete. Major fuckup from a national federation, who would have guessed.

    The coalition "Spolu" composed of civic Democratic party, Christian-Democratic party and liberal-conservative Top 09 party had kinda incredible finish in the last hour of counting (Prague district) and surpassed the current leading ANO party (populist party of PM Andrej Babiš) and shockingly won the elections.
     
    Tey already claimed to want have coalition only with the PiratiSTAN coalition of Czech pirates Party (Liberal progressive anticorruption, antifa, proecological party etc.. you know..pirates) and Stan (Mayors - liberal party).
    So it looks Czech Republic is going to be the first country in the world having the Pirates actually in the governement lol . Czech forums and medias going completely mad right now

    They're already barely ever holding regular relays though, this only seems like something that will cut that down even further.

    Good thing Solden is weeks before the season 'really' kicks off, plenty of time to recover...hopefully she'll be fit on time to enter the season full-force at least before February!

    Wendy Holdener broke both arms during last training. Apparently surgery is not necessary but She will miss at least Solden for sure

    The number one example of the 2021 Bahrain Bonus indeed  
     
    No idea what they did in the winter, but almost everyone in that team went three levels higher. Padun's two hard mountain stage solo wins on two consecutive days in the Dauphiné are another example. Or Caruso's second place in the Giro and Haig's and Mäder's 3th and 5th place in the Vuelta. Or Mohoric, who admittedly was already seriously good, but made a huge next step this year. And just the general riding of almost everybody else throughout the entire year.
