The Canadian Mont-Sainte-Anne becomes a place of celebration in Switzerland. Along with Filippo Colombo and Jolanda Neff, two Swiss athletes win cross country. Both win in the short race.
In the women’s race, Neff defeated Gwendolyn Gibson (USA) and compatriot Alessandra Keller. In third place in the overall World Cup standings, in-form Keller fielded leader Anne Terpstra.
Meanwhile, Neff celebrated his second win of the season in cross country. The Olympic champion is gearing up for the final highlights of the season. The European Championships in Munich and shortly thereafter the World Championships in Les Gates are still waiting.
It was also the second success of the season in the short run for strong Colombo. He then won at Lanzerheide for the first time in his career.
While Flukiger decided not to travel to Canada, Schurter was back in action a week after the snowshoe crash. In 32nd place, the Olympic champion and leader in the overall World Cup was still far behind his potential.
The cross-country races in Mont-Sainte-Anne take place on Sundays.
