There are tell-tell signs that without Petter Northug Jr. competing and, perhaps more importantly, making his sarcastic remarks on and off the trail...people are turning away from watching/reading about cross country skiing. Norwegian public broadcaster NRK run a story on the weekend showing to what extent the country's media as a whole care about the great sport of cross country skiing during and after Northug – take…
