    “Petter Northug finished 6th after he on one of big jumps.”

    I seem to miss at least second verb in there, and now don’t know what happened.

    mooned the specators?
    failed to land after?

    Ah, later on you refer to his crashing. I’d like to see him pull that off on WC’s more often 🙂
