Number of participants(nations/areas) 89/39

1st rank : Axel TEICHMANN (GER)
“It’s a great day for me. We had awesome skis — we probably had the best skis in the field. The team was pretty strong and we controlled the field sometimes, so it was the strength of our team that gave us the chance for the double victory and a 4th place. It was a great result for the team.”

2nd rank : Tobias ANGERER (GER)
“It was a fantastic race today. I’m very happy with my silver medal today, and I’m very happy Axel (Teichmann) won the race to give a double victory for Germany. I tried to go in the last 2 kilometers and I had the speed, but when I came to the last 100m there was a lot of headwind and I didn’t have the power.”

3rd rank : Pietro PILLER COTTRER (ITA)
“It wasn’t Petter’s [Northug] lucky day because he fell down in the last 300m and we all know that he’s really strong in the sprint, and that probably helped us to stay on the podium. Also the weather conditions helped us because there were no wax problems.”
