PREVIEW MEN'S 3-DAYS TOUR RUKA – 27-29 Nov 2020

• The previous 3-Days Tours have been won by five different male athletes. Martin Johnsrud Sundby (4), Petter Northug (2), Johannes Høsflot Klæbo (2), Alexander Legkov (1) and Didrik Tønseth (1) both won once.

• Of the last eight winners of the 3-Days Tour, six went on to win the overall World Cup that season (including Sundby in 2014/15, who was later stripped of his 2014/15 overall World Cup title). The only exceptions in that run were Tønseth (2018) and Klæbo (2019) in the last two seasons.

• Klæbo (3), Sundby, Calle Halfvarsson and Lukáš Bauer (all 2) are the only men to have won multiple 3-Days Tour stages (excluding overall).

• Bauer (2010, 2013), Sundby (2014, 2015) and Klæbo (2017, 2019) are the only athletes to have won at least one stage in multiple 3-Days Tours.

• Klæbo and Halfvarsson are the only athletes to have claimed multiple 3-Days Tour stage wins in a single edition. Halfvarsson won the sprint classic and the 10km free in Lillehammer in 2016. Klæbo won the sprint classic and the 15km classic in the 2017 edition.

JOHANNES HØSFLOT KLÆBO

• Last season, Johannes Høsflot Klæbo won the 3-Days Tour for a second time, after 2017. Only Martin Johnsrud Sundby (4) has won the 3-Days Tour at least three times among men.

• Klæbo can become the third man to successfully defend his 3-Days Tour title, after Sundby (4 in a row, 2013-2016) and Northug (2011-2012).

• Only Sundby (8), Northug (6) and Dario Cologna (6) have won more Tours (3-Days Tour, Tour de Ski, World Cup Final, Ski Tour Canada, Ski Tour) than Klæbo (5).

• Klæbo recorded an overall podium finish in four of the last five Tours, winning the Tour de Ski, World Cup Final and 3-Days Tour (all 2019) before finishing third in the Tour de Ski in 2020.

• Only Northug (18) has won more stages in one of the Tours than Klæbo (16) (excluding overall).

• Klæbo (39) is in fourth place all-time for most won men's World Cup events (incl. Tour stages and overall Tour wins), trailing only Sundby (33), Bjørn Dæhlie (46) and Northug (47).

ALEXANDER BOLSHUNOV

• Alexander Bolshunov is hoping to become the second non-Norwegian man to win the 3-Days Tour after compatriot Alexander Legkov who won the inaugural edition in 2010. All nine editions since have been won by Norwegians.

• Bolshunov, winner of the World Cup Final in 2017/18 and Tour de Ski in 2019/20, can become the fifth man to win at least three Tours (3-Days Tour, Tour de Ski, World Cup Final, Ski Tour Canada, Ski Tour).

• Bolshunov has won 16 World Cup events (incl. Tour stages and overall Tour wins), of which nine in last season. Of his 16 wins, 13 came in distance events.

• Only Johannes Høsflot Klæbo (11) won more World Cup events last season (incl. Tour stages and overall Tour wins) than Bolshunov (9).

OTHER CONTENDERS

• Dario Cologna has won six Tours, but none of those wins came in the 3-Days Tours. He won the World Cup Finals twice and the Tour de Ski four times.

• Only Sundby (8) has won more Tours (3-Days Tour, Tour de Ski, World Cup Final, Ski Tour Canada, Ski Tour) than Cologna (6). Petter Northug is also on six wins.

• Cologna has claimed 13 Tour podium finishes, joint-most among men alongside Northug (13). Sundby follows on 12 top-three finishes.

• Cologna will be 34 years and 263 days old on Sunday 29 November. He can become the second-oldest man to reach the podium of a Tour, after Giorgio Di Centa finished third in both in the 2007/08 Tour de Ski (35y-91d) and 2007/08 World Cup Final (35y-161d).

• By finishing third in last year's 3-Days Tour, Iivo Niskanen equalled the best result by a Finnish male skier in one of the Tours. Matti Heikkinen claimed third place in the 3-Days Tour in 2016.

• Niskanen has won five World Cup events (incl. Tour stages and overall Tour wins), of which he won four in Finland.

• Sergey Ustiugov, winner of the Tour de Ski in 2016/17, can become the third man from Russia after Alexander Legkov (2) and Alexander Bolshunov (2) to win multiple Tours (3-Days Tour, Tour de Ski, World Cup Final, Ski Tour Canada, Ski Tour).
