I’ll borrow a few phrases from my friend, World famous announcer Peter Graves to describe the conditions for Sundays 15 and 30 kilometer skate races on U-23 Worlds final day at Soldier Hollow, USA. (He was not there but this is how I would imagine it would have sounded):

“Welcome to Soldier Hollow — the start is now only 20 minutes away – It’s a beautiful day for cross country skiing — sunny, no wind – it couldn’t be better — some of the most fit athletes in the World are here — look at those legs – look at those skiers — look at those athletes – see their determination — learn from them — these are some of the best and hardest race courses in the World — we should all be cross country skiers — let’s give it up for The Rolling Stones for a few minutes!”
