The start of the competition was delayed 30 minutes due to extreme cold, but that did not stop the red hot France relay team from edging out Ukraine for another victory.
The French team of Sophie Boilley, Anais Bescond, Jean Guillaume Beatrix and Vincent Jay used only 5 extra rounds in their victory. The Ukrainians only used four, but could not catch France at the finish line. The Slovakian team was third, using 8 extra rounds.
The United States came in sixth. The Canadians did not enter a team as most of the national team athletes are here in Canmore for IBU Cup 6.
