Here’s one of several new reports on our AUS XC brothers and sisters, which may be found at http://ausxc.com/.
Callum Watson’s 88th in the 30km skiathlon Scandinavian Cup in Falun, Sweden is worth reporting on for several reasons:
- Callum is one of Australia’s top World Cup skiers and people are interested in what he is doing.
- Callum chest injury from August has led him being unable to start or finish any classic races this season up until this result.
- On the World Championships course in Falun, Callum was able to finish 10% behind a former World Champion and someone who will be near the top of the field come the main event in February.
In a field of 133 Callum finished 88th, 7:50 behind the winner Matti Heikkinen who finished the 30km in 1:16:51.9.
