The Tour de Ski’s Stage 4 cliff notes: Diggins and Brennan go 1-2, Russia literally sweeps the men’s race and Gus Schumacher arrives with a career-best 14th.

The 5 k loop in Toblach, Italy was a Diggins course – according to Kershaw – and she took charge. With Diggins and Brennan going 1-2, again, the Tour de Ski has a decidedly American look on the women’s side.

And with most of Russia’s men’s roster in the top-8, the boys in red Lycra control the standings. A bright note for men’s U.S. skiing, Gus Schumacher put together a top-15 worthy effort on the day.

The Stage 4 breakdown on the podcast.

The podcast also discusses a freak injury to Frida Karlsson, who injured herself ahead of the race when she was doing chinups over her hotel room doorway and the lintel gave way, causing her to fall to the floor. Karlsson posted a photo of the aftermath to Instagram (warning: explicit gesture).
