Liberec: Men's 15km

Two years ago at Sapporo, the men's individual-start 15km skate race was quite a mess, owing to a blizzard and a giant field. The biathlete Lars Berger pulled off an unexpected win, while Tobias Angerer raced very hard to pick up the bronze - just behind then- and now-unknown Belarussian Leanid Karneynka, who won a shock silver.

Odds are running against any such craziness at Liberec, even though the venue is socked with snow and wind. The field has 75 racers in it, rather than the 121 on the start list at Sapporo. My picks:
men's 15km individual-start classic race
1. Bauer
2. Olsson
3. Johnsrud Sundby
Kershaw: top 15
Freeman: top 30

Bauer...but how about Veerpalu! and Freeman!!! Showing he's got it, if he can ever get in consistent shape.
