    Hi Win – I don’t know at this point. I’m sure VANOC has some estimates. If I remember correctly, spectators at the Torino cross-country events ranged from 8,000 to 30,000, with the big number being at the men’s 50km. I’m sure someone could give us an idea of the numbers at Salt Lake. Lillehammer in ’94 had the biggest crowds for XC – over 100,000 for the men’s relay.
