German team with Fischer athletes Johannes Rydzek (GER, Fischer skis and boots) and Björn Kircheisen (GER, Fischer skis and boots) shortened the gap second by second and caught up position by position but last skier Eric Frenzel (GER, Fischer) lost a few seconds against Jörgen Graabak again. However team Germany was able to finish second, 48 seconds behind. Team USA came in third, 1:03 seconds back ahead of Austria with last skier Bernhard Gruber (AUT, Fischer skis and boots).
