Harvey finishes second in 15km World Cup race
Two-time Olympian Alex Harvey finished second in the 15km mass start at the Cross Country World Cup in Seefeld, Austria on Sunday.
Harvey finished with a time of 31:39.3, just 1.4 seconds behind first-place finisher Dario Cologna of Switzerland.
“It was a very fast pace right from the beginning,” said Harvey. “I think I was back in around 15th with Cologna and (third-place finisher Martin Johnsrud) Sundby both. But after the initial shock I was able to move my way back up to the front. I have just come from high altitude so I have fatigue in my body so second place today is a great result. I had really fast skis which always helps.”
On Saturday, Harvey finished eighth in the skate-ski sprint race. This was Harvey’s first competition since finishing third in the 9k free pursuit race at the Tour de Ski two weeks ago.
