Last year in this very same race, Viktor had a start position at the back of a large field. But his disadvantageous start position didn't deter him; he was leading the race by the 1km mark.
After our team dinner this evening, I noticed Étienne scribbling something on a piece of scrap paper. When I looked over his shoulder, this is what I saw:
Étienne is bib #85. He explained that this is his plan of attack from the start grid.
I like the looks of this. Viktor's spirit is still in full effect here on the UAA Ski Team.
