The last races of the Tour de Ski take place in Val die Fiemme. The 20 km mass start race today proved to be a very hard test. 5 rounds had to be completed with bonus seconds being awarded at the highest point of the leg. As a result, the pace was very fast from the beginning. Consequently, Manificat (FRA) and Legkov (RUS) lost touch with the leading skiers and thus the opportunity to claim a podium place in the overall result.
The lead was controlled by Cologna (SUI) who even managed to gain a few seconds from his direct opponent Northug (NOR).
