It is naive and ridiculous to claim something else. Daehlie, Alsgaard, Hjelmeset, Jevne, Estil, Bjervig, Skari, Mikkelsplass, Moen...they were all doped.
You sure present a lot of convincing facts :)
The saddest thing is that the doping culture is still very strong in Norway. Tord Asle Gjerdalen is one of the best examples: http://www.fis-ski.com/uk/604/613.html? ... ype=result
Scandinavian Cups, FIS cups, in Tour de Ski rankings between 15-56...Then suddenly 1st, 3rd and 6th in World Championships. The previous success, 1st and 3rd position in World Ski Championships, 2011 Oslo.
Norway has a strong anti-doping culture. Even in the comments below newspaper articles you very rarely see anyone say "Sure they doped, so what? Everyone else did too". Also, doping to such an extent is no longer possible after the implementation of biological passports, and so cannot explain Gjerdalens results. Maybe you didn't notice that all the 1. place finishes were in the relay? He got one individual bronze this year and one individual bronze in Holmenkollen in 2011.
