ATHLETES QUOTES

Marit Bjoergen (NOR)

Some of the best sprinters are not here. Other girls will have a chance to fight for a good results. I want to collect as many bonus seconds as possible. It will be even more important as the winner tomorrow gets onIy 30’’.

Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen (NOR)

I felt good energy in the prologue. I warmed up in the ski hall to get a winter feeling. When you are out on the course it is OK. I am thankful for having a chance to be able to compete in Oberhof.

Devon Kershaw(CAN)

I love the Tour de Ski. I think it is the coolest event of the year that showcases so many different strengths. This is my eighth time doing this and it is pretty special for me to win my 15th World Cup podium today. To do that with Alex and finishing one-two is amazing. That has never happened in cross-country skiing history.
