For-Real Pursuit

It's great that FIS has switched back to calling it the pursuit. And tomorrow is going to be worthy of the name, at least on the women's side.
Therese Johaug clawing back 27 seconds is going to be impressive, if it happens, and my guess is that there will be a lot of movement on both sides as the one-hit prologue wonder-skiers fade.
Frenchman Robin Duvilliard, anyone? In three trips to the prologue course in Oberhof, he has finished in the top 30 three times - impressive for a guy who usually can't find the top 30 in a sprint qualification round with a road map.
Better get the goods in print...
