American cheers on Alpe Cermis

The new German cross-country skiing climber Friedrich Moch stayed cool in the hour of his greatest individual success.

After the extremely difficult climb to Alpe Cermis, which the 23-year-old finished second on the day and second overall, unlike his competitors, who were lying exhausted in the snow, he simply stood there and looked forward to a cola. On Sunday evening, his final program included a celebration with the technicians.


15 years after Axel Teichmann, another German cross-country skier has climbed the podium of the prestigious ski tour. The last time current coach Teichmann achieved this was in 2009 with third place. The overall winner was the Norwegian Harald Oestberg Amundsen.

As was the case last year, the overall women's victory was won by the American Jessie Diggins, who was followed by her teammate Sophia Laukli in the day's victory. It was the 23-year-old's first World Cup success ever.
