Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone said
FALUN, Sweden - Canadas Alex Harvey rediscovered his magic to win gold at the World Cup cross-country skiing finals Saturday. [url=http://www.basketballbucksauthority.com/ray-allen-bucks-jersey-c-10/]Ray Allen Bucks Jersey[/url] . The 25-year-old from St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., narrowly held off Norways Martin Johnsrud Sundby to win the mens 30-kilometre race. "This has been the best season of my life," Harvey said. "Obviously we didnt have that magic we needed at the Olympics which was the goal, but I have five podiums this year, three victories, and this just reconfirms all of the work we did in the summer." Therese Johaug took a big step toward securing the overall cross-country World Cup title by beating Norwegian teammate Marit Bjoergen in the womens 15-kilometre skiathlon race. Harvey, whose best finish last month in Sochi was 18th, powered his way up the hills on the 2015 world championship course Saturday and took advantage of the fast glide on his skis in the downhill. He carried the pace until one kilometre to go when he shuffled to the side and moved into the back to draft on the final downhill and slingshot to gold. He beat Sundby in a sprint to the finish, crossing in one hour 18 minutes 7.6 seconds. The Norwegian finished just 0.12 seconds behind. Alexander Legkov of Russia was third, 1.76 seconds behind. Harvey has found success before in Falun, capturing his first World Cup title there in 2012. Its the same venue where his father Pierre won his first of three World Cup medals in 1987. "I just love racing and Falun is always at the end of the season," Harvey said. "I think some guys when they feel tired at the end of the year they shut down in the head a bit, but I just love to race. When there may be tired bodies at the end of the season, I like to keep going. "The course is so hard and it requires sustained work, and I just enjoy racing here." Harvey is fourth in the overall World Cup standings with the final 15-kilometre skate-ski pursuit race scheduled for Sunday. Devon Kershaw of Sudbury was 12th Saturday, while Ivan Babikov of Canmore, Alta., was 23rd. Johaug, meanwhile, won the womens race in 41:08.9 to beat Bjoergen by 33.6 seconds, with Finlands Kerttu Niskanen finishing third. Andrea Dupont of Timmins, Ont., was 45th.

"Well over 50 (per cent)," coach Claude Noel said Tuesday after practice, where the Jets were looking at ways to cut down the scoring chances theyve been giving away.MADRID, Spain -- Perhaps the Champions League success for Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid was the best thing that could happen to Barcelona -- at least as far as the domestic title race is concerned. The Madrid clubs stumbled in the Spanish league on Sunday as they looked sapped of energy following their wins in the Champions League semifinals to set up a city derby in the final. That has provided Barcelona with renewed hope after the defending champion wrote itself off. Leader Atletico lost 2-0 at Levante, while Madrid needed a stoppage-time goal from Cristiano Ronaldo to draw 2-2 against Valencia at home. That came after Atletico beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford Bridge and Madrid routed Bayern 4-0 in Munich in midweek. Chelsea went on to draw 0-0 on Sunday against Norwich to virtually fall out of contention in the Premier League race. "Specifically on the physical front. Atletico and Chelsea had the same problem (as us)," Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said after the teams draw. "You cant give your maximum intensity like that and not pay the price for it." Atletico is still the front-runner as it needs only four points from its final two games -- against Malaga at home this Sunday before the trip to Barcelona on May 18. Atletico leads with 88 points and Barcelona is second with 85. Madrid has 83 points but with three games remaining, starting with Wednesdays match at Real Valladolid that will see the standings set for the last two rounds. "We cant forget that we depend on ourselves," Atletico captain Gabi Fernandez said. "Were 115 days from tasting glory, so weve got to keep fighting. [url=http://www.basketballbucksauthority.com/thon-maker-bucks-jersey-c-2/]Thon Maker Bucks Jersey[/url]. ." Atletico holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over Madrid, so even wins for Real at Valladolid, at Celta Vigo, and home to Espanyol wouldnt be enough unless Atletico drops points. "I only trust in Madrid and no other team. We have to do our job and see what happens," Madrid defender Marcelo said. "First off, we have to win our games. We cant worry about other teams, we need to worry about ourselves, win, and then see." Ronaldos turn-of-his-boot volley to stab in a 92nd-minute cross allowed Madrid to remain in the race. "Cristianos goal was very, very important because if we had lost it would have meant we lost any chance of winning the league," Ancelotti said. "It was a key play. Weve got three games left, and on Wednesday well play better." Barcelona looked to have given up on winning a fifth title in six years after conceding a stoppage-time equalizer to relegation-battling Getafe in a 2-2 draw on Saturday. Now, suddenly, Barcelona remains in the hunt, but needs Madrid to drop points to have a chance to avoid a first season without a major trophy since 2007. If Atletico and Barcelona end up tied on points, Barcelona will hold the head-to-head advantage as that scenario will arrive only with the titleholder beating Atletico on the final day. "One day someone said this league was boring, and now its very fun," Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone said. "What we have left is a couple of rounds of pure football."
