Gällivare 15/10km Race Development: Graphical Analysis

Posted by Jan Kocbach, 24 Nov 2012@14:07

Martin Johnsrud Sundby – previously considered a classic specialist – did a fantastic race on today’s 15 km free in Gällivare. Sundby was fastest on 5 of the splits – especially in the second part of the race the Norwegian skier dominated as you can see from the graphical race analysis above.

In the split illustrations, a flat curve for a split indicated the best split time on this split. When the curves go down for a skier on a split, this means that the skier looses time on this split. The vertical lines correspond to different split times from the timing system. The splits in the above illustration are at 1.9 km, 2.3 km, 5 km, 6.9 km, 7.3 km, 10 km and 12.3 km.

The only one being more impressive in the last part of the men’s race than Sundby was Alexey Poltoranin who had a very strong finish from 12.3 km to 15 km.

Below graphical splits analysis is shown for some selected skiers – corresponding curves are also shown for the women.
