Toblach Sprint

I agree with Jan at XC Predictions that "the Toblach sprint stage can become a very decisive stage in this year's Tour de Ski in the men's race." Legkov won't earn any points in the sprint, and neither will many of the other top-ten racers except perhaps Kershaw (5). The sprint will be less important for the women, since Bjørgen and Kowalczyk have already pulled away from the rest of the field and now should be able to just manage their lead until Sunday. Unless one or both implodes, which would be very interesting...
