In the Mens/Boys 10K Classic, the Russians also had a good day. The 30K Skate Bronze medalist, Eugeni Dementiev of Russia moved up to Gold, winning by 29 seconds over YevgenlyKoschevoy of Kazakstan. Dementiev had an impressive breakway in the skate race on Tuesday, and actually led by 50 seconds early in the race, before running out of steam to fall back to third. But today, he only needed to go 10K instead of 30 and he held on to his lead. Maxim Bulgakov (Russia) was third. The top North American was Leif Zimmerman of Bozeman, Montana in 26th place.
