the VAL DI FIEMME (Dagbladet): John Høsflot Klæbo did one of his best races in his career when he is far on the way decided the Tour de Ski on yesterday's fellesstartrenn.
the 22-year-old increased the lead in the standings, from five seconds to a minute and twenty seconds to Sergey Ustjugov.
That John makes here is incredibly strong. I think it is impressive to come here and do it without altitude training. I know the height then into hell. Even if we are at 1100 metres above sea level, so not working my body as in the lowlands. So I think it is impressive how John makes it there without having been in the height first, says Martin Johnsrud sundby's time.
while sundby's time and the rest of the Norwegian distanseløperne have known how the launders has taken on, has Klæbo only become stronger and stronger in the distance beyond in the tour.
It feels at least good and distanseformen has been good the last two launders, says Klæbo even.- Need to get do as he will,
Before the tour was not Klæbo automatically hold on some of the longer distances in the world cup. With the very good distanseløpene in Oberstdorf and the Val di Fiemme, believes The ekspertkommentator Torgeir Bjørn that Klæbo should have free rein for the tour, and not care about the uttaksrennene national leadership's have signaled.
- Distanseformen has not been there until the Tour de Ski. But it has come in the course of the tour. He puts the world's best distanseløper in the classic, Aleksandr Bolsjunov, in place of the Val di Fiemme. He toys with Sergey Ustjugov in Oberstdorf. He must do what he will after the tour, " says the Bear to the NRK.
There are in fact only 13 days between the last race in the Tour de Ski 15-kilometer in Otepää, where the coach Eirik Myhr Nossum has stated that anyone who wants to go the distance in the world CHAMPIONSHIPS must be with.
- Yes, but it is pretty hard if you go the Tour de Ski, it is necessary a long training period afterwards. It is possible to combine, but it may be that it is better for him to train in the rest of January, said Bear to NTB earlier this week.the Current five distances
the Protagonist himself is well pleased with how the shape has evolved in the tour, but do not want themselves and take a position on whether he should participate in Otepää or not.
I think I have penetrated the distances here to get better and better kind, and now feel that distanseformen is better than what it was when we started the tour and it is certainly a good sign, " says Klæbo.
Nossum explains that he basically wants to see Klæbo on the 15 km classic in Otepää and 15 km and 30 km with skibytte in NM.
like I know the plan to John, is the pr. now regardless of that he should go in Otepää, says Nossum to take out the runners on the distanserennene in the world cup.
But the general admits that he, with a Klæbo in the form he has shown in the Tour de Ski, to get it difficult to exclude the 22-year-old from some distance.
If he continues to keep the form here and might also develop it, then it shall a little bit to that we have four that are better at all distances. I think it is just as much about finding a good plan for John, Bob, and Arild for what they should prioritize.
Thus, probably up to the Klæbo, the maternal grandfather of Bill Høsflot and many Arild Monsen to find out which of the distances Klæbo want to go. With the shape he has shown up to now in the tour is he høyaktuell for all races, perhaps with the exception of femmila.
There is a discussion on I first and foremost commend the Bill, Arild, and John, to lay a good plan for the world cup. He continues to be in as good shape as it here he can go the very most, and will most likely be eligible when the team should be taken out, " says Nossum.
