After a one-day break, the second stage of the Biathlon World Cup will resume on Saturday, which is again taking place in Ostersund, Sweden. On Saturday, the first race of the competition day will be the women's 10 km pursuit. We bring to your attention the forecast for this race.
The women's pursuit race promises to be very unpredictable. In the sprint on Thursday, 19 biathletes appeared in the finish protocol in a minute at once. Hauser, Elvira Eberg and Sola, who have been on the podium, are not stable in shooting, so anyone can win in the pursuit. It is almost impossible to predict the winner with the help of analysis, so you just need to guess. We see the German Prois as the best. The German women's national team has generally started the current season normally, but so far has only Herrmann's bronze in the sprint at the first stage. Prois with high-quality shooting is quite capable of winning.
It's also time to be on the podium Dinara Alimbekova, who has prepared well for the season, but so far has three fourth places. It's time to add something from metal awards to these "pieces of wood". Last season, the Belarusian shot with 87% accuracy in the pursuit, which is very good for Ostersund, where there is practically no wind at this time.
In duels, it begs to bet on Hauser against Elvira Eberg, who has not managed to pass a single firing line without misses this season. Nigmatullina should be higher than Incisor due to cleaner shooting and experience of performances in contact races. But Kuklina does not cause confidence yet, and it is unlikely that she will be able to beat Norwegian Knotten, to whom she will lose 15 seconds at the start. A tempting option seems to be the option for Roiselann against Hannah Eberg, who, like her sister, is unstable at the firing lines at the start of the new season.
