With two Swiss National champions back on home soil, Nino Schurter and Jolanda Neff took to the start line of the short-track cross-country race with one goal: to win.
Both the Elite Women’s and Men’s races saw tight front packs, rotating leaders until late-race attacks separated the victors from the chasers. For the women’s, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot pipped Jolanda Neff to the finish line in a photo finish, after Elisabeth Brandau ended her race early, and Kate Courtney crashed earlier on.
Over in Elite Men’s, it was evident from the get-go that front leaders Nino Schurter, Henrique Avancini and Mathieu Van Der Poel would dominate this race. After many rotations at the front, MVDP launched his attack on the group and broke away to take the win – making him undefeated in short-track this year.
