Therese Johaug flew over the track early in the race, taking 16 seconds after 2.2 kilometers from Ebba Andersson (SWE, Fischer skis, bindings and boots), who started shortly before her, even though Østberg and Pärmäkoski were still in between. In the steepest part of the climb just before the turn and the downhill towards the stadium Johaug extended her lead over the trio. From the 7.2 kilometer mark, the quartet's gaps remained relatively constant: Therese Johaug continued her triumphal march without danger and is still unbeaten in distance races after her doping suspension. Second place went to Davos expert Ingvild Flugstad Østberg twelve seconds behind. "I have been here for a week now and always had good weather. But the track is very tough, so I'm happy to be back on top of the podium and now I'm looking forward to Christmas and I am pleased that Ingvild became second and not far behind", says Therese Johaug. In the absence of the sick Charlotte Kalla (SWE, Fischer skis and bindings), the Swedish women's team missed the podium for the first time this season with Ebba Andersson in fourth place, 38 seconds behind. Teresa Stadlober (AUT, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) once again gained a top10 result. With 1:09 minutes behind she finished a good seventh place. Anastasia Sedova (RUS, Fischer skis and bindings) was eighth followed by her compatriot Natalia Nepryaeva (RUS, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) and the surprisingly strong Elisa Brocard (ITA, Fischer skis, bindings and boots).
