Norway’s Northug Reclaims the Tour de Ski Lead

Following a disappointing sprint in which he didn’t make it past the qualifying stage and was consequently left in fifth place, 47.3 seconds off of the lead, Norway’s Petter Northug has reclaimed the top position in the Tour de Ski. Northug won the 30km pursuit, which was the fifth stage of the event, over Dario Cologna. It was Emil Joensson’s withdrawal, however, that allowed Northug to take the lead. Prior to his withdrawal, Joensson was the overall leader of the Tour de Ski.
