So weird to see skiing in the summer..

Johaug delivered a knockout, but expected as she's an uphill specialist.

Kruger and Holund continue their great form winning the uphill, but Bolshunov winning the 60k is a warning of things to come this winter. Hard to forget he's only 21, and seems like it's the youngsters Klæbo and him next season and maybe even next decade?

The women's race was over by minute 2. Johaug jumped to the lead right away and nobody could follow.

I noticed Heidi Weng was absent. Good for her - she was the classic example of peaking too early evidenced by a terrible Olympics and 2nd half of the WC season. She over-raced.

I thought Johaug would blow but she just kept going.

Most of the racing was posted to YT in the end. French skater Justine Braisaz broke the skandi domination in the Ladies Biathlon Supersprint
