With Clean Shooting and Untouchable Sprint, Fourcade Nevertheless Has to Work Hard for Ruhpolding Mass Start Win

After romping to a win in the sprint on Saturday, Martin Fourcade of France had to work far harder on Sunday, draining his reserves to outsprint Dmitry Malyshko at the end of the 15 k mass start. Emil Hegle Svendsen of Norway staged an impressive comeback from two penalties to take third; Tim Burke was 17th in his first race back from illness.
