FIS Cross-Country Race Director Pierre Mignerey’s Remark
Tomorrow we have many bonus seconds to be distributed tomorrow. The mass start competitions will be very important for the Overall Tour de Ski Standing. This year we have shortened the distance to 10 km for ladies and 15 km for the men. It is important for us and the teams to test the courses for the championships.
Athletes and Coaches Quotes
Justyna Kowalczyk (POL)
I think 10 km classic is a good distance for me. We will see what the tactics are of the Norwegian girls and I will do what I can do. I like the tracks here. The last two years I have had good feeling here especially in classic.
Petter Northug (NOR)
I think the most important thing now is to be in the front now and control a little bit. But for sure I have to stay focused now. This is the time that people make mistakes as we have seen before. For me it is important stay focus and race smart. We will see what Alexander, Dario and Maxim do before the bonus seconds. I will make sure I am in the right position to react if I have too.
