Final Climb 1.5

The nordic combined racers are in Val di Fiemme this weekend, too. After this morning's jumping, Johnny Spillane is in third, Todd Lodwick in fith, and Bill Demong in seventh. The 9km skiing leg of the competition takes place soon - and sends the skiers up the Final Climb. Spillane will start at +23s to leader Anssi Koivuranta (FIN), a good skier; Lodwick at +24s; and Demong at +35s. Go, guys, go!

But what an irony - from flying down and off a hill to skier up and on one. Of course, the often-little NC guys are ready-made for a climb like this one... No Hattestads or Rickardssons in this group.
