Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE

 

By taking the first place of the pursuit on Saturday in Kanthy-Mansiysk, Martin Fourcade wins the general ranking of the World cup. A real exploit at only 23 years old … Patrice Bailly-Salins and Raphaël Poirée realized this huge performance before him. He also takes the small globe of the pursuit and will try on Sunday to gain those of the Mass Start.

Finally! After 25 races on 26 and a beautiful victory in the pursuit of Kanthy-Mansiysk, I assure myself the victory of the general ranking of the World Cup 2012 and the small globe of the pursuit. The globe returns in France 8 years later after Raphaël Poirée! I am simply happy this evening to reach the major goal of my season. The race would be almost forgotten but she is magnificent and allows me to enjoy completely the victory of the general. With 19/20 and a beautiful head-to-head with Arndt Peiffer, I win here in Russia one year after my world title! Congratulations to the technicians who after a difficult day yesterday were magnificent.”
