"Calle Halfvarsson was with and fought for a podium finish after half of the race. "
"But then dropped the swede to a åttondeplats. "
"– I'm clapping through very much, " he says. "
"Calle Halfvarsson has mixed and given this season. He was third in the 15 km classic during the premiärhelgen in Ruka, but since then he has not been stepping up. "
"When the Tour de Ski continued, with the 15 km classic, he had the chance after a strong opening. After half of the race was Halfvarsson just a second from a podium finish. But in the second half fell the swede back in the field."
"It was a åttondeplats for Halfvarsson, 43 seconds from the Utiugov and 21 seconds from the podium. "
" I'm not so happy with my race. I'm clapping through very much, can you say the 10 last miles? It felt good the first five, but then stumnade I. I have to calm me down a bit more to the next race if there is to be a more even race. But of course you have to test if you should be up there, " he says to SVT. "
"'No one scored direct '"
"Halfvarsson is still decent in total on a tenth place, 59 seconds behind. "
"– It is not scored directly on the tour. Yesterday was a bad day and I took me only fifteen minutes. Today was a okay day, although I am far from Ustiugov. I may well put ”ok-minus” on this start. "
"Won the race did Sergey Ustiugov. The Russian missed part of the season due to injury, but was back in Davos before christmas. It was not a success then, and in yesterday's sprint, it was a 24th place for the star. "
"But in the 15 km free was Utiugov back seriously. "
"Ustiugov crushed everyone and won 12 seconds ahead of the Norwegian Simen Hegestad Krüger and with 21.9 seconds ahead of his countryman Alexander Bolsjunov. "
