Victories of the triple Olympic champion Alexandra Bolshunova and Olympic champion Veronica Stepanova in freestyle races at the Russian Cup stage were expected, the president of the Russian Ski Racing Federation told Elena Vialbé.
Bolshunov took first place in the 15km race at the Khakassia stage, covering the distance in 33 minutes 30.1 seconds. Second place went to Denis Spitsov (+18.5), third to Artem Maltsev (+27.0). Stepanova finished first in the 10km race, covering the distance in 25 minutes 44.4 seconds. The second was Ekaterina Smirnova (+56.2), the third – Larisa Ryasina (+1.09.5).
We don’t see any new names. Of course, today’s wins for Bolshunov and Stepanova were expected. Terentiev and Natasha Nepryaeva didn’t start today, but it was planned in advance. It is impossible to run all the stages, the calendar of competitions in Russia is almost the same as in the World Cup. Now we are going to Chusovoy, all athletes go there, – Vyalba told “”.
