Jessica Diggins reconquers yellow bib

US-American wins freestyle 10km Masstart

Just in time for the turn of the year, Jessica Digging reconquered the yellow bib of the World Cup Leader by winning the freestyle 10km Masstart. In 21:30.8 minutes, the US-American won in an exciting finish ahead of Swede Frida Karlsson (+0,5 sec) and Russian Tatiana Sorina (+0,8sec).

The Norwegian skiers failed to match their expectations in this long-distance race and didn't make the podium. Finishing 6th, German Katharina Hennig scored a much better result than in Lenzerheide. The 25-year old Saxonian, who lives and trains near Oberstdorf in the Oberallgäu Region, wasn't in the best of health. "I think that I really needed the races in Lenzerheide after my cold. I am grateful that it went so well here today", Hennig said happily after the race. Antonia Fräbel was happy about her 20th position, Sofie Krehl finished 27th and scored Worldcup-points.

Klaebo's second strike

The Norwegian dominates the 15km Massstart in Oberstdorf

Under good overall conditions, just like the first competition, Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo also dominated the second run of the Tour de Ski in Oberstdorf, the 15km Massstart. With a lead of 3,4 seconds, the 25-year-old Norwegian crossed the finish line ahead of title-defending Russian Alexander Bolshunov. Sjur Roethe (Norway) finished third with a Garmisch-Partenkirchen of 4 seconds to the winner.

Whilst the first two laps proved to be a head-to-head fight, especially during the 4th and last lap a leader-group of four athletes took over, with Andrew Musgrave (UK), Klaebo, Roethe and Bolshunov. At the last uphill, Klaebo, who had already won the first competition in Lenzerheide (Switzerland) just after Christmas, demonstrated once again that he is in top-shape.

Best German was Youngster Friedrich Moch (WSV Isny) in 12th place, 36 seconds behind the leader, meeting half of the Olympic standard. The other DSV-athletes finished as follows: 21. Lucas Bögl (SC Gaisach), 33. Thomas Bing (Rhoener WSV Dermbach), 40. Janosch Brugger (WSG Schluchsee).

In addition to Florian Notz (SC Romerstein) being unable to compete due to illness, Jonas Dobler was taken out of the ongoing race by DSV-coach Peter Schlickenrieder due to precaution.

Rain and Sun cover the Cross-Country Word Cup in Oberstdorf

Since the day the rain started, Fidel Joas, athletic director of Tour de Ski (TdS) in Oberstdorf started to worry. Between December 27 and 30 it rained more than 60 litres per square metre across the tracks at the local Nordic centre. Benefiting their multiple years of experience from various World Cup competitions and the Nordic Ski World Championships, his team of 15 helpers managed to prepare the tracks to be suitable for the competitions of the second stop of the TdS 2021/22. “Currently we have 40 cm artificial snow on our 3.3, respectively 3.75 km tracks”, Joas explains. By painstaking work, the rainwater had been drained in the best possible way, the snow along the tracks had been integrated and the tracks had been prepared. The weather forecast isn’t good. After the rain stops over the course of Thursday, for the competition days on the 31st and New Year’s Day sunshine and up to 12°C are forecast. “We will do our best and give everything to ensure good conditions for the over 170 athletes from 25 nations at our venues and that once again we can show beautiful pictures of Oberstdorf to the rest of the world”, said the experienced sporting director.
