This is the world cup

12 Jun

Can’t see the football world cup on TV, and wouldn’t want to anyhow. Here’s the World Cup that matters. The men’s 50 km freestyle race this year at Holmenkollen in Oslo was indeed the ski World Cup final. With this brutally tough win Northug sealed up his win in the points standing. Was a great moment to watch.

The Frenchman, Vittoz, coming in third was a nice touch too. The race was full of suspense because Northug, Vittoz and Magnificat (also from France)  pulled away from the peleton very early. It looked like a questionable move, but two out of the three managed to hold off the attack from the pack behind them.
