Summary

Kershaw chats about the magic of Oberstdorf's classic sprints: three American women in the top-10 that includes a great rebound from Jessie Diggins (in third) after a down day in the skiathlon.

Show Notes

In this episode of of The Devon Kershaw Show from FasterSkier, it is all classic: a deep breakdown from Devon on the nature of Obertsdorf, Germany's classic sprint course. The course has some relevance for this basic reason: the 2021 FIS Nordic Ski World Championships will be held at this venue next season. And what a preview. With three steep climbs, a wee bit of recovery, this sprint course demands big capacity. 

There's also the highlight of the day for Kershaw - three American women in the top-10. Just 24 hours prior, the U.S. women looked uncharacteristically flat. With a quick reset, the classic sprint was a home-run for the team. 

Lastly, we look into the big time gaps in the men's qualifier in which Johannes Høsflot Klæbo of Norway destroyed the field. And of course we include some analysis of Klæbo's run away win. 

Thanks for listening.
