Klaebo "Golden boy" of cross-country skiing

An awesome "Defast" is 2nd, Ustiugov loses ground


13th Tour de Ski today and tomorrow in Val di Fiemme
Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo wins the Mass Start increasing his margin on Ustiugov
Klaebo beats the Italian Francesco De Fabiani only in the finish sprint, 3rd Bolshunov
The winners of the 13th edition will be crowned tomorrow after the last stage on Alpe Cermis

“I am not stopping until the finish line now”, stated Johannes Klaebo after winning the Mass Start of Tour de Ski in Val di Fiemme this afternoon and remembering the unhappy finish in Ruka that cost him the victory in the World Cup race. The congratulations go also to Francesco De Fabiani who has been very “DeFast” arriving 2nd behind the golden boy of cross-country skiing after a spectacular final sprint. Sergey Ustiugov was Klaebo’s first worry, but the first Russian athletes have been Bolshunov (3rd), Larkov (4th), Vylegzhanin (5th) and Sobakarev (6th). Ustiugov finished just 16th, 42 seconds behind Klaebo; the overall gap between the two athletes reaches 1.20 seconds. Dario Cologna - winner of the last edition of Tour de Ski - arrived 24th. Tomorrow, at 2.45 pm, there will be the 9 km Final Climb in free technique which will crown the champion of the 13th edition of Tour de Ski. “It was really hard, but I had a very good day and I’m happy to have gained important seconds. Tomorrow it will be my first time on the Final Climb, we’ll see”, stated Klaebo after the race.
