Here is the preview, start list, and times for the team sprint race at the Lahti World Cup in Finland.

Lahti World Cup – Men’s Freestyle Team Sprint – Preview

On Friday, March 24, the men’s team sprint in freestyle technique will take place in Lahti. The competition will feature some of the top traditional cross-country skiers in the world, including skiers from Norway, France, Italy, Finland, and Sweden.

Norway is the team to beat in this event, winning the World title in the men’s team sprint this year. Johannes Høsflot Klæbo and Pål Golberg represented Norway in Planica, where they won their third successive World title in this event. In addition to their success at the World Championships, the Norwegians have also won the gold medal in the men’s team sprint at the last two Olympic Winter Games.

Despite their impressive record, Norway has faced some setbacks this season, finishing 15th and 16th in Livigno on January 22. Nevertheless, Johannes Høsflot Klæbo remains a force to be reckoned with, having won a record 39 individual sprint World Cup events and one team sprint World Cup event in Lahti on February 10, 2019.

France is another team to watch in this event, having won the only previous men’s team sprint event in this season’s World Cup. Richard Jouve and Renaud Jay competed for France in Livigno last January, securing their second World Cup win in the team sprint after a victory in Dresden in January 2020.

Italy is also a strong contender, having won eight men’s team sprint World Cup events, which is the third-most behind Norway (14) and Russia (11). Federico Pellegrino, who has won three World Cup events in this discipline, has the chance to equal the record for most World Cup wins in the Men’s Team Sprint held by Alexey Petukhov, Tor Arne Hetland, Cristian Zorzi, Ola Vigen Hattestad, and Nikolay Morilov, all with four wins.

Finland has yet to win this event in the World Cup, but they have claimed four World Cup podiums in the men’s team sprint, with their most recent podium finish being a third place by Mäki/Hakola in Planica on December 22, 2019.

Lastly, Sweden has finished runners-up in World Cup team sprint events a record 13 times. Their last win came in Düsseldorf in December 2011.

Overall, the men’s team sprint in freestyle technique promises to be an exciting and highly competitive event, with Norway, France, Italy, Finland, and Sweden all vying for the top spot on the podium.
