DSV quartet without Doll and Co only in an outsider role
Similar to the women the day before, the men will not be at their best either. The last outstanding Benedikt Doll is rested like Johannes Kühn, Philipp Nawrath and Erik Lesser. The “second row”, consisting of Roman Rees, Philipp Horn, David Zobel and Lucas Fratzscher, does not stand a chance, but everything has to come together perfectly for a place on the podium.
These are the favourites
The favorite question can be answered quickly and easily with Norway. The Vikings are at their absolute best with Sturla Holm Lægreid, Tarjei Bø, Johannes Thingnes Bø and Vetle Sjåstad Christiansen. The long-term rivals from France, on the other hand, will be without the exasperated Émilien Jacquelin and the World Cup leader Quentin Fillon Maillet. However, the quartet consisting of Claude, Guigonnat, Desthieux and Perrot should not be underestimated. But the Russian quartet around Alexander Loginov has to be even bigger on the list. While the team from Sweden is not at its best, you always have to keep an eye on the powerful squadrons from Belarus and Ukraine.
