Cross Country: Northug stays home

Norway's cross country ace Petter Northug has not fully recovered from last week's cold, and has decided not to participate in the World Cup events at Gällivare, Sweden this weekend.

The cold also hampered him at the season opener at Beitostølen in Norway last week.

It is also uncertain if Northug will participate in next week's meet in Kuusamo, Finland.
