“It is always easier to catch up with the best than to keep the bar.”  Korostelev explained how to compete with Bolshunov on the track

Skier Savely Korostelev on after the 15 km freestyle race at the fifth stage of the Alfa-Bank Russian Cup in Kazan, he explained how to manage Alexander Bolshunov .

Bolshunov won and came second Artem Maltsev , Korostelev completes the leading trio. Bolshunov won the 13th consecutive race within the Russian Cup.

— Difficult track, difficult weather. Looking at the course, I can tell that all the height difference is concentrated in the first half of the circle, after which there is a long flat part. In the last lap I felt that my strength remained, I thought about adding more on the climb and then on the flat, but somehow it turned out that Tema [Мальцев] also “not dead”.

I saw Bolshunov only when I heard the Buran snowmobile on the last climb. He realized he was driving in front of him. I’m glad I didn’t catch up (smile).

— Before the race, did you think about possible scenarios in the fight against Bolshunov?

“You can’t rely on Sasha, only on your own strength.” If you want to beat him, you can’t wait for him. You must run away from him.

– You are one of the strongest skiers in Russia, but 45 seconds behind Bolshunov, how to reduce them? Abyss!

— Sasha is a strong skier, the best in the world. It is always easier to catch up with the best than to follow the best. So let’s move on, we will continue to work,” Korostelev said on .

On Saturday, January 13, at the stage of the Russian Cup in Kazan, sprint races will take place between men and women, qualifying will begin at 10:10 (Moscow time), finals – at 12:40 (Moscow time) . Watch the live broadcast on the channel, matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru.
