This event had been held at 4 x 7.5 km since 1994, but was shortened to 4 x 6 km for Torino. Three teams were expected to battle for the medals – Russia, Germany, and Norway. They had dominated the recent World Cup relays, and the World Championships. Russia went into the lead on the first leg, and would never fall back, winning the gold medal fairly easily. Germany was third on the first leg, trailing Bulgaria, but would move into second on the second leg and stay there to win the silver medal. Norway shot poorly and would finish only fifth. The bronze medal was won by France, which was somewhat surprising. But they would win the 2006-07 World Cup in the relay, the first time it had been won by a nation other than Russia, Germany, or Norway. And they would be on the podium at the next three World Championships, placing second in 2007 and third in 2008-09.
