The Norwegians Schmid and Graabak started out fast into the cross-country race over ten laps of 1.5 kilometers each, but the two German teams worked together and got closer and closer. After the seventh handover, the two pursuers were finally with the Norwegian and from lap eight the Germans took over the command. Schmid and Graabak were able to recover in the slipstream and use these energies successfully in the final sprint. Second place behind the Norwegians, who were able to repeat their victory from 2015, went to Geiger/Rydzek in front of Rießle/Frenzel. Samuel Costa (ITA, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) and Alessandro Pittin (ITA) missed the desired podium in front of their home crowd in fourth. Rank five went to Austrians Greiderer/Klapfer ahead of Magnus Krog (NOR) and Espen Bjørnstad (NOR, Fischer skis, bindings and boots).
