Johannes Høsflot Klæbo of Norway laid the groundwork at the Tour de Ski for his successful season and in the end, not even the Corona virus could stop him. The two-time Beijing Olympic champion easily scooped up the overall World Cup with eight individual wins. He ended up the season in second place in the Sprint and in third in the Distance World Cup, this after being unable to make the starting line in the final four races. “Of course, I would like to have raced in Drammen and at Holmenkollen, but after I had traveled so much and rarely been at home, I gave myself a few days of rest and tried to let the wear and tear of the winter ease away,” explained the now-triple overall World Cup winner. Finland’s Iivo Niskanen stayed hot on his heels and can now look back on a successful season, in which he won the entire array of Olympic medals, the small crystal globe for the Distance World Cup, and took third in the overall final tally. Erik Valnes, Didrik Tønseth and Martin Løwstrøm Nyenget, all from Norway, took places five through seven; with Lucas Chanavat, from France, taking tenth in the overall World Cup, to contribute significantly to the Fischer Race Family’s successful showing.
