The early lead was taken by Germany’s Tobias Angerer, with the defending champion, Andrus Veerpalu of Estonia, second at the 4.9 km checkpoint. But by the 9.9 km time check, Veerpalu had moved ahead, and would ski on to his second consecutive gold medal in the event. Angerer would hang on to a medal, but dropped back to bronze, passed by Czech skier Lukáš Bauer.

Veerpalu won the Holmenkollen 50 km in 2003 and 2005, and was World Champion at 30 km in 2001 and at this distance in 2009. In 2007-08 Bauer would win both the seasonal World Cup, the distance World Cup, and the Tour de Ski. Angerer had won the first Tour de Ski in 2006-07, and through has 2009 won six medals at the World Championships, but has yet to win a major international title.
