Kontiolahti : Foucade, 2nd of the pursuit

Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE


Martin Fourcade : " Left at the head of the pursuit, I made a very good beginning of race to arrive in head together with Emil Svendsen during the last shooting ! The wind, the cold, the tiredness after two weeks of competition but also the stakes for the overall ranking pressed on this end of race. I take 2 penalties against 3 for Svendsen. Ole Einar Bjoerndalen realizes a run without fault and takes advantage of our errors to win his 94th victory in the World Cup! I end in second position 10 seconds behind the Norwegian to rise on my 9th podium of the winter! I return tomorrow morning in France for a few days of rest before leaving on Wednesday to Seefeld (Austria) to prepare the major event of the season, the World championships in Ruhpolding ".

Overall Ranking of the World Cup (13th February)

1. Martin Fourcade (FRA) with 774 points
2. Emil Svendsen (NOR) with 753 points
3. Andreas Birnbacher (GER) with 607 points
