Alex Harvey has 'bad day' in 2nd stage of Tour de Ski

Dario Cologna claimed his 23rd overall World Cup victory in Lenzerheide

Dario Cologna claimed his 23rd overall World Cup victory in Lenzerheide

The triple Olympic champion narrowly edged out Kazakhstan's Alexey Poltoranin by 0.6 seconds to win the men's 15km classic competition on Sunday. Harvey, from St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., was almost a minute behind in 36:27.4.

"It was just a bad day". "The 15-kilometre classic is my weakest event, but I was still expecting something better today. Tomorrow I will be chased and it is going to be a tough race". Third-place Martin Johnsrud Sundby of Norway trailed 13.1 behind Cologna.

Russia's Sergey Ustiugov finished in tenth place, 37.1 seconds off the lead but continues to lead the Tour ahead of Monday's 15km free technique pursuit event.

Ustiugov lies second and Bolshunov third, 55.5 seconds off the leading pace.

Sadie Bjornsen of the United States was third, 42.2 behind Oestberg, earning the Anchorage resident her third podium result of the season. Bjornsen is fourth, 10 seconds behind teammate Jessica Diggins.

"Luckily the sprint yesterday saved me and it was good, now looking back, to get the bonus seconds I did there", said Harvey, who was seventh overall at last year's Tour de Ski. The featured event on the Nordic calendar - outside of the Olympics and World Championships - tests some of the most physically and mentally fit athletes in the world to determine the king and queen of cross-country skiing when they cross the finish line of the Tour, ending with a 425-metre climb to the top of Alpe Cermis in Val di Fiemme, Italy on January 7.
