This event is too long to hold Goldenland's attention and involves no glitter, so we'll trust the oddsmaker's choice of Lukas Bauer

I wanna pick Sami Juaojahfananjithong so badly!

But I'm going to play it safe and go with the second best name I see... But by far the dirtiest...

Northug is completely out of it. It seems to be a race between only a few competitors.
