TOBLACH (Dagbladet): For two stages of this year's tour, there are three runners who have separated themselves out on the men's side.
John Høsflot Klæbo located in a provisional third place, but have only five and ten seconds, respectively, Sergey Ustjugov and Aleksandr Bolsjunov. On tomorrow's sprint in Val Müstair, he can again take the lead in the standings.
the Question is about the second Norwegian sprinters are in with in the tour and have little hope in the summary can help him in the fight against the two russians. After that the sprinters have started to select the heat out from where they end up in the prologue have the norwegians namely the possibility to select themselves into the same heat as the russians.DUO: Eirik Brandsdal and John Høsflot Klæbo staying in the same room and trained together on the sabbath day in Toblach.

Teammates on the sprintlandslaget Find sandnes, norway Krogh, Sindre Bjørnestad Cut and Eirik Brandsdal probably won't complete the tour, but Klæbo expect no help from them.
I think probably not. They are fighting about a bullet in the sprintcupen, so I don't think it gets much taktikkeri there. There is sure to be discussed, but I think probably not, said Klæbo after two stages was done.
Eirik Brandsdal say, however, that he can well imagine an attempt to help roommate Klæbo.
- We have not discussed it yet in any case, but I'm no stranger to select heat with Bolsjunov and try to beat out him. I like the to go in the heat with him, for my part, it is win-win in that case, " says Brandsdal to the Newspaper.
- We have to try to help as best we can, it is in the clear. At the same time I go for my own chances also. I located high up in the sprintcupen and want to get with me the most points. There are two things to consider here, " says the seasoned sprinter.grandfather's message to John: - Could perhaps have been more cynical Height can destroy the
Klæbo does not exclude that also he can choose the same run as the rival in the swiss alps.
- It is only to select the same heat as Bolsjunov so are now four pieces on on time in any case, says Klæbo.
A challenge for the Norwegian is that Bolsjunov in Toblach chose a different tactic than he would have had a habit in the sprint. Instead for the first run, the selected Bolsjunov the last, where resistance is often considerably easier.
- Bolsjunov did a slightly different tactic than in the past. He chose the last heat, and it is not something we norwegians have had a habit. It has not been our style so far. He ran a slightly new variation now. If he makes it up there in height then it may be worse to many norwegians on it, I think, said Brandsdal.
the Race in Val Müstair go namely at 1660 meters altitude, and the last of the quarterfinals provides less rest between heatene than the first and second.- Lugn and relaxed
Currently has the tour been a success for Klæbo, who was number eleven on yesterday's individual competitions in the freestyle and limited the loss of most of the athletes in the field.
Brandsdal sharing a room with 22-year-old from Trondheim and believes that Klæbo still on the cut in his first tour.
I think he is relaxed and lugn as always. He seems to have both the nerves and body under control, so it's promising, describes the Brandsdal.Langrennshelten Trude Dybendahl: - All lows are a gift " Plus
