The Kazakh team worked on their skis for so long that they were about five minutes late for the fluoride test before the race. As a result, their riders were stopped.
"We're sorry. It's an experience, but a bad experience for our waxers," Kislyakov said.
Head coach Alexander Batyaikin explains the incident.
"It was stressful. We don't have such a big waxing team. But today we made a mistake.
What did the activists think about this?
"Of course, they're not so happy. Everyone on the team was stressed. But it's a new race tomorrow and we'll learn from this and try to do everything right.
