This really is a wonderful event. I almost created an article about it for the 2006-07 season, but went for a quick check into the category first and saw it already exists, my compliments :) I was however wondering... Shouldn't we have this article as the main article for the event and put the results of this year as a split-off in 2006-07 Tour de Ski, just like we do in mainly all other sports and events?

Since there's only been one of them so far, this article is not really needing to be split off. Once another event has been held I'll consider splitting into two. Sam Vimes | Address me 09:19, 3 January 2007 (UTC)

Bonus seconds[edit]

Hi, great that someone took the effort of putting up a page on the Tour. Just one gripe: we should include information on all the bonus points & seconds awarded in the various (parts of) races, so that the reader can easily appreciate/follow the progression of overall standings. The current state of the article leaves that part of the equation unanswered and makes the overall picture somewhat confusing. --Wernher 04:07, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

Done. Not quite sure whether Bjørgen or Majdic came third at the first sprint, tho, and there's no other sources who seems to care about it very much. So does anyone remember? Sam Vimes | Address me 10:58, 9 January 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for the good work. I must say I'm a bit surprised by the seemingly total lack of sources of the individual bonus points winners! Like you, I had to deduce the winners from FIS' sprint point lists, which only provides the distribution of bonus points over the skiers, not the points awarded at each separate sprint point of the distance races. Bah. --Wernher 01:22, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
