I wouldn't call it bogus, but the weather did play havoc for some of the racers (particularly the top of the field). Sunny and favourable winds for the first 10 racers or so, then changed to nasty headwinds and bad light for everyone up to the mid 30s or 40s, after which it went back to sunny and reasonable winds. So some of the late starting guys got into the points, with Carlo Janka starting 65 and finishing 2nd.
However that's part of Ski Racing, everyone competing knows that, and I don't think it should take anything away from what Fill, Janka or anyone else did.
Also, you can watch the whole race (direct feed - no commentary) on the CBC's on demand site: http://www.cbc.ca/sports/ondemand/
I don't know if it's accessible outside Canada or not, but it's a nice resource.
