Two new champions were crowned in the cross-country discipline: Catharine Pendrel (Luna) and Nino Schurter (Scott-Swisspower). Pendrel capped her World Cup season with her second victory of the year, while Schurter had to settle for second place behind first time World Cup winner Jaroslav Kulhavy (Rubena-Birell-Specialized). Kulhavy's win was the first ever cross-country victory for a Czech rider.
Pendrel began the weekend 54 points ahead of Eva Lechner (Colnago Arreghini Sudtirol) and 59 points in front of Willow Koerber (Subaru-Trek). Neither of her rivals could respond to her aggressive racing style, and the Canadian rode away to cement her victory. Koerber finished second in the overall standings, followed by Lechner.
