FALUN, Sweden - Canadas Alex Harvey rediscovered his magic to win gold at the World Cup cross-country skiing finals Saturday. Alejandro Villanueva Jersey . 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. Javon Hargrave Jersey . The former central defender calmly nodded it down and quietly went about celebrating a win with his staff. For a man who has had a lot on his shoulders this season, it was an appropriate moment. Maurkice Pouncey Jersey . - The Washington Redskins have signed free agent offensive lineman Mike McGlynn. http://www.footballsteelerstore.us/Black-Friday-Donnie-Shell-Jersey/ .Connor Graham, Alex Lintuniemi and Sam Studnicka also scored for Ottawa (11-8-2). Liam Herbst made 21 saves for the win.Brendan Lemieux had both of Barries (10-10-2) goals.IRVING, Texas - For all the drama Dez Bryant created on and off the field early in his career, the Dallas receiver has never really had a public spat with a high-profile rival.Tony Romos top target isnt going to start with Richard Sherman, the talented Seattle cornerback whos been known to call out opposing receivers in pointed ways.I feel like at times he says what he feels and thats what he believes, said Bryant, who will try to match his second-longest touchdown streak at five games when the Cowboys (4-1) visit the Seahawks on Sunday. Theres really nothing wrong with what hes doing. He has issues with other players that are a conflict, but thats not here. We have respect.Days after dismissing Washingtons Pierre Garcon as a receiver who doesnt matter, Sherman had entirely different words for Bryant, one of the leagues most productive receivers since the Cowboys drafted him in 2010.The timing might have had a little to do with it because Bryant had just made one of the best catches of his career a€” a leaping, juggling 37-yarder on third down to set up the winning field goal in a 20-17 overtime victory against Houston.He made a fantastic play for them last week, which is indicative of what he can do when the ball is in the air, Sherman said. Hes definitely physical throughout the route.The Cowboys bring a surprising record and NFL rusher leader DeMarco Murray to Seattle (3-1), and the matchup of Murray against the leagues top rushing defence is certainly a talker. But Sherman against Bryant is probably the most intriguing one-on-one battle in the game.Its unlikely that Dallas will follow the lead of other teams and simply stay away from Sherman. The Cowboys have generally been better when theyve found ways to get the ball to Bryant, whose 44 scoring catches through 64 games are more than twice what Drrew Pearson had and 15 more than Michael Irvin at the same point in the careers of those No. Arthur Moats Jersey. 88s for Dallas.They have really good players all across their defence, so I think if you got into that game with these guys you wouldnt really snap the ball, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. Theyre awfully good. Just put the tape on. But we have to do what we do.Even if Sherman took aim at Bryant the way he did with San Franciscos Michael Crabtree, its unlikely he would get much of a response from Bryant. While the fifth-year receiver had a petty sideline moment as recently as last season when he went to the locker room before the clock expired in a loss to Green Bay, he usually dances away from headline-grabbing sound bites.He wouldnt oblige reporters Thursday when asked if he considered himself the best, and after Garrett playfully pushed him away from the conversation, he came back for one more answer a€” and a politically correct one at that.But Bryant isnt naive enough to believe all the niceties will extend into the game.Im pretty sure hes going to say something to me, said Bryant, who said he chatted with Sherman and exchanged phone numbers at an event during the off-season. Im pretty sure Im going to say something to him. But at the end of the day, when its all said and done, were going to congratulate one another and talk and take pictures and get back on the plane and go our separate ways.NOTES: LB Bruce Carter is out for a second straight game because of a strained quadriceps, but LB Rolando McClain (groin) practiced Friday. Hes listed as questionable, but owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show that he anticipated McClain playing.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
