Twenty-one athletes hit all targets at the first shooting, among the losers it is worth highlighting Martin Ponsiluoma, Antonin Guigonnat and Niklas Hartweg. Swede soon caught the peloton, but the Frenchman also fell on one of the downhills and was already a minute behind. And then, it turned out that Guigonnat damaged his rifle and retired from the race.
On the second lap, Vetle Christiansen decided to break away from the peloton, and he managed to win for 8 seconds. On the second prone, the Norwegian was again accurate and went into the race with a 10-second lead. They coped without mistakes, and Laegreid, Kuehn, Krchmar, Doll, Dale, Rastorguevs, Strelow, Ponsiluoma and Rees rushed after him.
On the standing, Christiansen's strategy continued to work, the Norwegian shot clean. But the group of pursuers thinned out a little: Doll, Dale, Strelow, Ponsiluoma and Rastorguevs went to the penalty loops, and four went after Christiansen: Laegreid, Kuehn, Dale, and Krchmar.
Decisive shooting, Christiansen shoots clean, he is the winner, but none of the four pursuers cope with all five targets, Laegreid and Kuehn even missing twice.
Meanwhile, Sebastian Stalder is suddenly in second place, and Eric Perrot is in third. However, very close they were followed by Dale, Andersen, and Krchmar. We have five contenders for 2 prizes.
But almost immediately Johannes Dale stepped forward and turned on his pace. Only Eric Perrot was able to hold on to him, unfortunately, Krchmar and Stalder began to fall behind, and Andersen completely dropped out of the fight.
Perrault tried to overtake Dale on the last climb, before the hairpin, but he was a little lacking in strength, and already on the descent the Frenchman had no chance. Krcmar, meanwhile, won the duel against Stalder.
