In an event that is not contested often during the season, Norway was the likely favorite as they won the season’s only World Cup relay. But the ROC team upset Norway to take the gold medal in Beijing, winning by 1:07.2. Aleksey Chervotkin, Aleksandr Bolshunov, Denis Spitsov, and Sergey Ustyugov impressed with a start-to-finish victory. The result was never in doubt. After the first leg, Chervotkin was already comfortably ahead, with Bolshunov increasing their lead significantly by the end of leg two. The ROC clearly outdistanced the other teams and Ustyugov eventually came home with a lead of more than one minute at the finish.

Behind the ROC, a close battle for silver raged for a long time. Defending champions Norway, and France, the latter recovering from a slow start, fought a gripping duel on the last lap. While Maurice Manificat did his best to push Johannes Høsflot Klæbo in the uphill stretches, the Norwegian’s speed on the downhill proved decisive. Klæbo held on to beat France by 9.2 seconds. Sweden, Germany and Italy were all in contention at various stages.
