In the first half of lap one, it initially looked as if the chasing duo Andersson/Weng, which started eleven seconds later, could approach Johaug/Østberg, but Ebba Andersson (SWE, Fischer ***) soon ceased her efforts and both of them settled rather backwards to Nepryaeva/Jacobsen. After four kilometers the group of four had gathered under speed work from Natalia Nepryaeva (RUS, Fischer ***), who started 26 seconds back and they should stay together until the end. Nepryaeva attacked on the last climb, as with Johaug, a small gap opened here, which was closed again on the descent. Andersson, who had put a lot of strength into her lead work, was overtaken on the home stretch by everyone. It got really tight in the fight for third place between Heidi Weng, who always had problems during the race to keep up the others, and Natalia Nepryaeva: The Norwegian won by a hair's breadth. Sprint winner Anamarija Lampic (SLO, Fischer ***) kept up surprisingly well and occasionally showed up in the front in the second group. Nevertheless, the Slovenian still had enough energies for the finish sprint by securing seventh place ahead of Teresa Stadlober (AUT, Fischer ***) and Katharina Hennig (GER, Fischer ***).
