Falun -- well, that was AWESOME!

Postby JeffOYB » Mon Feb 15, 2016 7:19 pm

No spoilers, but... What a stunning race! Not like your usual Mass Start. Well, maybe 10k's can be a little fiestier than a 30 or 50. WHAT A TEMPO! And hooray for the USA! Not an inch of gimme in this one! Holy smokes! A total drag race from the start and nobody gave an inch. The winners went berserk and gained inches at a time but the field hung like a pack of wolves. I couldn't see much sitting in anywhere on this one!

...And then Erik Bjornsen did good for the US Men. 20th seems better than we usually do. Tho I didn't see a bunch of familiar names. No Canadians.

Yeah!

Here's the same race you linked to but with English commentary:

I've linked to a moment part-way into the race with some commentary very relevant to another post from you: "Look at those [some team name] skis gliding really well."

Can you guess the team name? LOL.
