Tour de Ski Alpe Cermis: Splits analysis women 2011

Posted by Jan Kocbach, 09 Jan 2011@14:00


The above illustration shows a splits analysis of the development in the final Tour de Ski stage up Alpe Cermis – highlighting how Therese Johaug (Norway) did a fantastic race – crushing all of the other skiers. She was actually fastest on all splits on the Alpe Cermis climb!

Marianna Longa and Arianna Follis kept ut the speed in the flat part, but had no chance when the final climb started. Petra Majdic got problems in the climb, being passed by Kalla just ahead of the last split. Another Norwegian – Marthe Kristoffersen – was the other one besides Johaug gaining time on Kowalczyk up the hill. Kristoffersen was also fastest on the second split – the only one beating Johaug.

At the bottom of this page, you can see the splits analysis for the complete field. Not much grouping today – most skiers took the fight up the climb on their own.

You may also open the splitsbrowser yourself to make your own analysis of the race. A flat line on a split means that an athlete is the fastest on a split. The steeper the line goes, the more an athlete looses on that split. Note that all lines start at 0:00 instead of at the actual start time, thus the illustration is not useful for the first split.
