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.”

Today we leave the words to Martin Fourcade who tells us its day in Russia and the first race, the sprint.
"Hello / good evening according to your time zone! I was a little worried for two days (and at nights also) by the overall ranking of the world cup but all the tension however flew away once on my skis. Forgotten the mathematical thoughts and the probability! I take pleasure during this sprint in spite of the difficulty of the race due to a very slow snow. I win finally with beautiful one 10/10 for my 7th victory of the season in front of the German Peiffer and the Swede Lindström. This race allows me to take away the small globe of the sprint, the second of my career after the pursuit in 2010. I also increase my advance for the big globe. At two races of the end the future appears for best”

I guessed that I can catch a medal but Tora is so strong in the bumps. So I couldn’t do anything. But I said to myself thar I didn’t want to leave the second place to Makarainen. I took pleasure during this event, I will finish this season perfectly”
