Alex Bolshunov didn't have a good training camp in Ramsau. We at Dailyskier.com adhere to a policy of not reporting on skiers' health issues that we learned of until/ unless their teams decide to make them public. On Saturday Bolshunov's coach Yuri Borodavko did just that: the World Cup winner couldn't train properly due to pain and fever caused by a dental cyst or an inflammation of tissue in the gum.

The Pearl of Siberia is called "pearl" not for nothing: many heard of it, but few made a pilgrimage to Siberia to see one of the world's largest ski stadium for themselves. It's about to change: Pearl of Siberia, some 40k from oil- rich city of Tyumen, will host FIS World Cup finals next year. Here's what athletes and, God willing, dedicated fans shall find there: - snow guaranteed tracks. They laid fancy earth- freezing piping system underneath plus it's you know, Siberia after all.

Pearl of Siberia was in many ways built as biathlon venue - biathletes like their tracks to…
