Legkov thinks Klebo will win the World Cup in the new season in Bolshunov’s absence

Olympic cross-country skiing champion Alexander Legkov think he is norwegian Johannes Klebo will win the general classification of the 2022/23 World Cup, but only in the absence of the Russian skiers.

— Taking into account that (Alexander) Bolshunov doesn’t make it to the World Cup stages, so Klebo stays in the fight for the overall win, which they compete with all the time. There’s (Finn Ivo) Niskanen in the classic style, (Italian Federico) Pellegrino in the sprint races. Bolshunov runs both distances and sprints. Among our athletes there are also a number of strong ones, including young ones.

(18 years old) Saveliy Korostelev is relevant that the Russians will not go to the KM stages, because he can compete with them from the first to the last start. Unfortunately, most likely, our athletes will perform in Russia and not go to international tournaments this year. In this case, Klebo can win the overall World Cup standings, but he will win it without the strongest athletes,” Legkov said on .

The first stage of the new season’s World Cup will take place from November 25 to 27 in Finland’s Ruka. The decision on the participation of Russian skiers in the competition will be made at the end of October.
