Why bother only finishing half the stages? :d

And Olympic qualification. It's feasible that Laukkanen might be a part of the Finnish team sprint relay, so she'll need two more sprints to qualify.

Exactly. Plus there's no biathlon in that time anyway, why not get some more competitive rhythm. Besides, Laukkanen has already proven more than once she's very much capable of being a serious World Cup-level cross-country skier in the sprint.

Sundby doesn't make the cut. Slightly surprising, since he's shown more than once that he is very capable of even finishing top-10 in these things, but then again, it's the Olympic season, I doubt the Tour de Ski is where he wants to be in his best shape.
