With no medals up for grabs in the 2015-16 FIS World Cup season, many athletes will be focusing on the pursuit of crystal globes. Here a short preview to the upcoming season.
The 8th edition of the Viessmann FIS Tour de Ski with performance by Craft Sportswear came to a close leaving many with great memories from the seven days of competition. For this Tour de Ski, it was one of many firsts.
Therese Johaug of Norway has won her first Tour de Ski and become the first Norwegian woman to do so. She started the day 23 seconds behind teammate Astrid Jacobsen and in the end led a trio of Norwegian ladies on the podium. Heidi Weng held off a late charge from Finland's Krista Lahteenmaki to take third.
Therese Johaug of Norway has always dominated the final climb up Alpe Cermis to end the Tour de Ski, but today one day before that final climb she put in another dominant performance in the 5 km classic in Val di Fiemme.
On the morning of the fourth stage of the Tour de Ski, the Norwegian Ski Federation has announced that Marit Bjørgen is withdrawing from the Tour.
After two races in Oberhof the Tour de Ski moves on to Lenzerheide for a free technique sprint competition on Tuesday and a 10/15 km classic mass start competition on Wednesday. Both will be very important for the long chasing start in Toblach/Cortina – especially in the men’s class it is important to get into the big groups which always form.
