A big note upfront, in this episode we review a video when Devon was relegated for obstruction during a World Cup sprint. So, if you have a phone or other device handy, here’s the link to the video. That’s Devon on the outside…coming in hot.
Take a look, because we’ll get into this pretty deep in the episode. And …. we’ll chat the racing of the day, Stage 2 of the 2021 Tour de ski – all mass start classic racing.
(We also chat about this Putin t-shirt worn by famed Russian skier and national team manager Yelena Vyalb within the context of how the team will discuss Chervotkin’s obstruction and subsequent DQ.)
The Race on the men’s side shook out with a big Bolshunov win, while the women had a surprise winner of sorts with Swede Linn Svahn, known for her sprinting, won the day. Two American women in Jessie Diggins and Rosie Brennan remain in the hunt for the overall.
We talk about children and car seats, obstruction on the sprint course, and where it goes from here with six stages to go.
