Week-end-ul ce tocmai a trecut a gazduit o noua etapa de Cupa Mondiala, mai precis in Germania, in oraselul Offenburg

Campionul olimpic Julien Absalon a continuat seria succeselor la Offenburg, obtinand a 4-a victorie consecutia pe taramul german, si prima in acest an.

Francezul a luat initiativa si s-a plasat in fruntea cursei inca din primul tur, un lucru necaracteristic lui, alaturi de Nino Schurter, cel care a castigat prima etapa de Cupa Mondiala din acest an.

Cei doi au inceput sa se distanteze de grupul urmaritor format din Jaroslav Kulhavy, Cristoph Sauser si Florian Vogel. Sauser a condus grupul care insa nu a reusit sa se apropie de cei din fata.

In tura cu numarul 3, Absalon a luat un mic avans in fata lui Schurter, care s-a marit in fiecare tura, acesta trecand linia de sosire cu un avans de 49 de secunde. Kulhavy de asemena a atacat si a terminat pe 3, urmat de Sauser si Vogel. Absalon conduce in acest moment la general avand mai mult cu 44 de puncte decat Schurter.
