There is a replacement in the men's team. Johannes Dale leaves team A and goes to compete to the IBU Cup. Instead, Philip Andersen joins to Johannes and Tarjei Boe, Vetle Christiansen, Sivert Bakken, and Sturla Legreid.
Philip started the season with an extra quota from IBU, but was relegated to the Ibu Cup. But «poor» results by Johannes Dale forced the coaches to reconsider the squad.
Philip took part in the IBU Cup in three races, and took 1st, 2nd and 15th places.
