This, once again, thaught Norwegians that first, you got to stand the distance. While Edvald struggles with that, Kristoff would be my default pick for any race >400 km just as Quintana normally looks like he wiill excel in the fourth week of grand tours. Even Norwegian media commented afterwards that they need to remind themselves more often that when distance matters, Kristoff must never be forgotten - even on a course made for EBH.
You know, if I were the #teamno DS, I'd pick Kristoff for Innsbruck (unless he was hanging onto life by a thread) and make him at least co-leader. He simply gets better with every kilometre; and a world championship race is always one of the longest races of the year.
