Evgeniya Krupitskaya: No Haters Writing To Me  – Definite Sign I’m No Star Yet

Evgeniya Krupitskaya: No Haters Writing To Me – Definite Sign I’m No Star Yet

Leaders, Newsfeed
Nobody had more meteoric rise last season than an 18 year old teenager from Saint Petersburg. Six months ago even the best informed specialists likely haven't heard the name. Unlike other brilliant Juniors, Helene Fossesholm and Veronika Stepanova, who were on the radar for the last couple of years, Evgeniya Krupitskaya, who is year younger, came seemingly from nowhere. But she is surely there to stay: two silver medals at the Junior World Championships plus a 4th place ( a third medal was very close!), a successful debut in the World Cup in Engadin and very respectful performance at the Russian Nationals. We spoke to the " world hottest" junior after her season's end I'm not the " biggest junior prospect in the world" - that's more of my goal…

Pearl Of Siberia

Pearl Of Siberia

Newsfeed, Travel & Mass Sport
The Pearl of Siberia is called "pearl" not for nothing: many heard of it, but few made a pilgrimage to Siberia to see one of the world's largest ski stadium for themselves. It's about to change: Pearl of Siberia, some 40k from oil- rich city of Tyumen, will host FIS World Cup finals next year. Here's what athletes and, God willing, dedicated fans shall find there: - snow guaranteed tracks. They laid fancy earth- freezing piping system underneath plus it's you know, Siberia after all. They ski here some 7-8 months / year. - huge ski stadium comparable only to Holmenkollen in grandeur and sitting capacity. - competition tracks wide as US highways. Pearl of Siberia was in many ways built as biathlon venue - biathletes like their tracks to…

World Shall  Be Theirs. Soon!

World Shall Be Theirs. Soon!

Leaders, Newsfeed
Always fun to onwatch how heroes of the recent Juniors/ U23 World championships make a transition to the Big League, testing their mettle against the leaders of the world skiing. Several of the young stars were taken to Oberstdorf recently - but either weren't started or failed to make an impact. Understandably so: when you prepare the whole season specifically for the Juniors' World, it's nay-impossibke to be in top form two weeks later - and compete against people who trained to be on their peak at the World Championships. The FIS World Cup finalé in Engadin is different in tha t sense: Johaug, Diggins, Klaebo and Bolshunov shall still be running over the weekend, but let's face it - the pressure is not there and neither is leaders'form, probably.…

Madshus has created an instant sensation when its highly regarded but hitherto internationally unknown skier raced to the podium in 15k F in Oberstdorf. Beating in the last 2k Bolshuhov himself!

[caption id="attachment_18021" align="alignnone" width="300"] Madshus is tight -lipped about their innovations and new materials. Let's say we at Dailyskier.com had no pre-warning something so efficient and visually striking is coming despite being in close contact with the Norwegian manufacturer [/caption][caption id="attachment_18022" align="alignnone" width="300"] The racing conditions in Oberstdorf 15k F: subzero Celsius at night but around 12 at the race start, overcast and, perhaps crucially, no salt used by the organizers to keep the tracks firm on that day[/caption][caption id="attachment_18019" align="alignnone" width="300"] Same uphill, one day…
