WC Classic Sprint Final

Video from today's world championship classic sprint.  Canada's Alex Harvey was in the final.  The men's final starts around the 2 minute point.  The commentary is in Russian ...

There is also some nice slow motion footage of the men's and women's finals to see the double-poling. had this photo of the "victory" lap.  Now that's a flag ... I think Downtown Nordic needs one of those!
