TdS 2010 vs 2011 Performance

Like last time a look at the performance of skiers from different nations in this year’s TdS and last year’s.  As always, click through for full versions, as these are somewhat large: Again, apologies if your favorite country isn’t shown. The Russian men actually seem to be doing about the same, with a handful of […]

Tour de Ski Rest Day 2 Recap

As expected, Stage 6 saw quite a bit of movement (as well as skiers abandoning due to illness): A couple of the men are really quite a ways off the back; I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some of them pack it in.  Stage 6 created a lot more “clumpiness” with the men, although […]

Tour de Ski: Leaders & North Americans

2011 Tour de Ski Preview

Ok, so this isn’t much of a preview.  Rather it’s just a bird’s eye view of what happened last year using some bumps plots.  Here’s how things played out for the men: The median skier can sort of be thought of as the “peloton”.  As you can see, not much happened until Stage 5, the […]

Recap: Davos Sprint Con’t

One of the interesting things we can look at with sprint races is differences between the various heats themselves, rather than individual skiers.  Interestingly, reconstructing this information, namely who was in what quarterfinal or semifinal, using just the split times took a little bit of thought.  Not a monumental challenge, but it was a bit […]
