Prelim ski done on Olympic tracks?

Watching some olympic video from Sochi and got to wondering- they groom the track and then do they have people ski it in before the competitors? Or do the first guys out have a slower track? How many would ski it in?

Tracks are skied in before the race starts. The skiers who ski in the tracks are known as Forerunners.
