Topher Sabot in ‘Escape from the Bathroom’ – HD Video!

Last night, FasterSkier Editor in Chief was unsuspectingly taking a shower when the door handle to the bathroom broke, leaving him marooned inside while the remainder of the FasterSkier staff went on an unsuccessful gummy bear-hunting expedition.

After an extremely confused, non-English-speaking woman attempted to apply a screwdriver to the door, help came in the form of one of the hotel’s managers. He wielded a combination of brute force and suave wrench technique to defeat the broken lock, allowing Sabot to finally egress from bathroom without experiencing any ‘panik.’ We caught him immediately afterwards for the exclusive post-confinement interview.

Bib-Grabbing and Near-Fisticuffs: Dusseldorf Men’s Sprint Finish

The wild finish of the men’s Dusseldorf sprint video has been posted on YouTube – check it out below. Featuring Germany’s Josef Wenzl as the rowdy young upstart who can barely control his temper. Oystein Pettersen’s composure is pretty impressive.

In interviews with the German media, Wenzl didn’t seem too contrite, blaming the contact on John Kristian Dahl. Andy Newell, though, placed the blame fully on Wenzl, saying that the crash was “definitely Wenzl’s fault.” From this report on Langrenn, it sounds as if the Norwegians may have appealed the result to the race jury, but if so, nothing came of it.

Check out some shots of Kris Freeman (USA) and Dario Cologna (SUI) in the distance race, Emil Joensson (SWE) and Justyna Kowalczyk (POL) skiing to dominating victories in the sprint, and a few others.
