ERZURUM, Turkey — It’s short, but we were able to film parts of the men’s 30 k skiathlon at U23 World Championships on Saturday. Russia’s Raul Shakirzianov won by 0.9 seconds over teammate Evgeniy Belov. Noah Hoffman (USA) sat in near the front for much of the race but finished eighth in a close sprint finish.
