Switzerland with Häcki
Switzerland will also have little to do with the outcome of the race. With Lena Häcki, the best Swiss runs in second place. The team is complemented by Amy Baserga and the Gasparin sisters Elisa and Selina.
Austria without houses
The Austrians contest the relay competition without Lisa Theresa Hauser. Julia Schwaiger, Anna Juppe, Katharina Innerhofer and Christina Rieder take to the track one after the other. You will only have outsider chances.
Who are the favourites?
Other top athletes like Marte Olsbu Røiseland and the Öberg sisters are also missing. The Norwegians are still well positioned with Karoline Offigstad Knotten, Tiril Eckhoff, Ida Lien and Ingrid Landmark Tandrevold and are among the favourites. The French women won the relay in Ruhpolding, and expectations are high for them. Like the team from Belarus, the Russians shouldn’t be underestimated either.
DSV team decimated
The German team is decimated. Vanessa Voigt, Denise Herrmann and Vanessa Hinz are not at the start. Franziska Preuss is still missing after her injury in December and a corona infection. Germany sends Anna Weidel, Franziska Hildebrand, Janina Hettich and Hanna Kebinger into the race. Kebinger recently celebrated her World Cup debut and is currently in fourth position.
Welcome to Anterselva. Here in South Tyrol, the women’s 4×6 km relay will take place at 3 p.m. As with the previous men’s mass start competition, the wind conditions are not easy.
