no surprise at the end, Riiber with finger in the nose, as easy as it could

 

Silver for Herola, bronze Oftebro.. not the hockey one

Really? I think barely any experts considered him the favorite before the start with only 20 seconds advantage compared to Riessle/Frenzel. Obviously the Norwegians either had insane material or had a great „training“ camp. When even some rando like Oftebro can beat Riessle/Frenzel, you know that something weird is going on.

You know who wears sunglasses inside?

Herola!! It's been a while since Finland won any medals... Last was in 2007 before this :D

Riiber did the same in Seefeld 2 years ago, in fact in the last 3 seasons, he is clearly the strongest and obviously one of the top favs in every race if we like it or not.   Oftebro beat bo

Oftebro beat both of them many times this season so it is not like some sudden miracle or so

Sadly Anssi Koivuranta was set to continue, but he got ill & the tradition ended, sponsors left, money dries up.....

Yeah. Koivuranta - Manninen Duo in Nordic Combined was unstoppable. Luckily with Herola things are looking bright

Don’t know what you mean with „Riiber did the same“. I am sure he didn’t plan to have such a bad jump. Not sure what happened with the Germans today but if Geiger would have been in normal shape, Riiber might have very well lost this race (given that Geiger started almost at the same time as Herola and usually is at pretty much the same level of skiing, but much better at sprints).

 

Recently the German guys completely dominated Oftebro in cross-country skiing and often took around 1 minute off of him. It is very surprising that he also was able to beat someone like Watabe. I think either a lot of guys are completely out of shape or they just couldn’t deal with the conditions (maybe thanks to bad material). In a usual race there is no way that Oftebro would have finished ahead of Frenzel/Riessle/Watabe and that Herola would have finished that far ahead of Geiger.

I would totally agree with @hckošice, no surprise there, perhaps I was at least expecting Geiger would also close to main group, other than that it is going to be awful Worlds for hosts, knowing their ever lasting high expectations.
