Race Winner vs Boe
The World Cup continues in Hochfielzen with the 12,5 kilometer Pursuit is on today’s agenda for the men. Johannes did his things very well in the opening 10 km spring on Friday, as he shot 10/10 and skied absolutely amazing with the best overall time aswell. The favourite that everybody was talking about, Martin Fourcade, shot 10/10 as well, but he did not impress with his skiing at all and ended up on a 7th place.
There are some definite contenders starting behind him today as Simon Schempp (+ 14 seconds), Tarjei Boe (+ 27 seconds), Martin Fourcade ( + 28 seconds) and Emil Hegle Svendsen (+31 seconds) are some dangerous challengers.
On the men’s relay yesterday, Russia won, while France was runners up and Norway finished third. Both Boe and Fourcade made very good performances, but their teammates damaged the team’s chances to beat Russia.
I think that Johannes Boe will be the winner today. He has stated himself after the relay on Saturday that he feels like he is “in the zone” and that he is in control over his own tasks during his races. Boe will get a 14 seconds lead to Schempp, while around 30 seconds down to Svendsen, T. Boe and Fourcade as mentioned. This means around a penalty loop which gives Johannes the time to find the right pace and get in control of his own race. He skies very fast currently and I cannot see him loosing time during the race. With a currently good shooting form as well, I can see him taking another WC-win.
