Pittin wins again
Alessandro Pittin secured his second World Cup victory in Chaux Neuve. The Italien started with a larger gap into the cross-country skiing and shortened the gap to the leading athletes more and more. After 7.5 kilometres already 16 athletes were ahead and the race was decided in the final stretch. Because the podium remains the same as in yesterday's competition so Fabian Riessle celebrated his second podium in World Cup ever and finished third. Mikko Kokslien (NOR, Fischer skis and boots) came in fourth, Björn Kircheisen (GER, Fischer skis and boots) finished sixth ahead of Akito Watabe (JPN, Fischer skis and boots) and Jan Schmid (NOR, Fischer skis, boots and poles). Schmids team mate Havard Klemetsen (NOR, Fischer) was ranked tenth.
