The 32-year-old had a penalty and was 56.3 seconds behind winner Johannes Thingnes Bö after 20 kilometers. The 29-year-old Norwegian compensated for two penalty minutes on his 60th World Cup success and relegated his teammate Vetle Sjaastad Christiansen (1 penalty) to second place with a lead of 9.9 seconds. Third place went to faultless Jakov Fak from Slovenia. It was Bö’s eighth win of the season. All other German ski hunters missed the top ten. According to ARD, a jury wants to decide whether the race will be counted because of the power failure.

During the race, power outages caused a lot of hectic activity in Bavaria. The live broadcast on TV failed several times and nothing worked in the stadium. At times there was no light in the buildings and at the shooting range, and monitors also remained black several times with interruptions. This did not affect the timing, which was backed up by batteries without interruption. So the race could be counted regularly.
