The fastest one was Italian Christof Innerhofer, who has beaten Matthias Mayer by eight milliseconds and his compatriot Otmar Striedinger by 44 milliseconds. Aksel Lund Svindal ended up on an excellent 7th place, only a few days after his hand surgery. Because he skied with a wrist brace, he couldn’t push himself with his ski poles, so he had to accelerate with his legs.
Čater was on the 27th place and he fell behind for 1.60 seconds. The remaining Slovenians finished in the second half of 82 competitors. Klemen Kosi ended up on the 48th place (+2.38), Miha Hrobat 51st (+2.46), Tilen Debelak on 70th (+3.82), and Boštjan Kline on 71st (+4.50).
