Well, at the women's side Femke Kok :NED is the favourite, but like Patrick Roest today she has only something to lose. In addition, she has a bad draw, finishing in the outside lane. I predict Angelina Golikova :RUS  for the win. The men's competition will be close, but will find Pawel Kuliznhikov :RUS on top of the ranking. Laurent Dubreuil :CAN also has a good chance.

 

Team pursuit women: :CAN for sure.

Team pursuit men: :NOR .

Yeah, outside lane in the final pair is probably the poorest draw she could have, but Femke Kok competes very well under pressure. Golikova also came closer and closer every world cup race, so yeah, she could very well win. Perhaps Herzog can surprise and become world champion for the second time. Kok and Herzog will be the ones I'm going to root for tomorrow.


Team pursuits were more wishful thinking from my side. I think the Dutch teams are the strongest on paper when you look at the individual skaters and what times they can skate on the 1.500/3.000/5.000 metres, but other teams are better at working together. I'm really interested to see how the tougher circumstances will impact the skaters compared to the previous world cups, especially skaters like Blondin, Golubeva, Wüst and Howe who are better at the 1.500m than at the longer distances.

Nice to read your predictions. For me Antoinette de Jong  and Natalia Voronina  are the clear favourites at the women's side, Nils van der Poel   will win the men's race tomorrow, although I hope for

Does anyone know where streaming/replays can be found? There’s nothing on the ISU YouTube page, or on the Olympic Channel.
