In the men's final the Norwegians Emil Iversen and Johannes Høsflot Klæbo had everything under control. Iversen kept increasing the pace on his last lap, but Sweden I (Calle Halfvarsson (SWE) and Oskar Svensson (SWE, Fischer skis and bindings)) could keep up, as did four other teams. At the beginning of the last lap Svensson led the race, but at the passage of the scoreboard before the last climb Klæbo took the lead and stormed in classic technique up the hill. Ristomatti Hakola (FIN, Fischer skis, bindings and boots), who teamed up with crowd-pleaser Iivo Niskanen (FIN), was surprisingly close on his heels after the climb. Behind them followed Norway II with Brandsdal in front of three other teams with a slight gap. In the final sprint, noone bothered Johannes Høsflot Klæbo on his way to his next win and the Finns in the stadium were horrified to see that Hakola had to defend himself against Eirik Brandsdal in the final sprint and narrowly lost the duel - suddenly it was absolutely quiet in the stadium, even though the Finns could celebrate a podium finish. "It was good to win and we were able to take revenge", said Emil Iversen and Klæbo explained what his colleague meant: "2017 at the World Championships I fell in the last corner and now we are both back on a slightly different track and have taken the victory." The Russians Artem Maltsev (RUS, Fischer skis and bindings) and Gleb Retivykh (RUS, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) succeeded in the final sprint against Halfvarsson/Svensson and De Fabiani/Pellegrino (both ITA).
