FIS Rule Changes We'd Like To See

Sprint courses shall not contain 180 degree turns.

...Especially not in the first 60 seconds of racing. Bottlenecks that force skiers to race single-file should be absolutely unacceptable in a sprint race.

So should sprint races be held on 1.2k straightaways in which each skier has a designated lane?

Like many things in life, you'll find there is a large gray area between "1.2k straightaway" and "180 degree turn."
