TOBLACH (Dagbladet): Sergey Ustjugov crushed all competitors in the 15 km in Toblach and took his first world cup competition since he was banned before the OLYMPIC games the previous season.
After a crushing end, he was 13 seconds in front of Simen Hegstad Krüger. Yet it was not Ustjugov particularly talkative. While all of the competitors went through pressesonen after the race, stuck the 26-year-old straight to the forest, without talking with anyone.Boycotted the press
instead, the press was notified of Russia's presseansvarlige Max Volkov that Ustjugov not wanted to talk with someone, and that he was not going to speak with the media before the world cup in February.
- He's not going to speak with someone before the world cup. He did not want to create headings.
- So he's not going to talk to someone?
Not today, perhaps later, to respond Volkov.

Russia's national team coach and Ustjugovs personal trainer says that it is regrettable that the Ustjugov boycotts the press.
