Denis Spitsov finished second in the last stage of the Tour de Ski, where the participants climbed the ski slope in Val di Fiemme, Italy. The first place went to the Norwegian Shura Rete.
Spitsov before the last stage was inferior to the leader of the overall standings of the stage race, the Norwegian Johannes Klebo, 3 minutes and 54 seconds, and initially had no chance to win back this 10 km lag in the mass start. But he could have displaced Finn Ivo Niskanen from third place in the final protocol, to whom he was inferior in a little over a minute. As a result, Denis took only seven seconds to climb the podium.
The most realistic chances to catch up with Klebo had the second place Alexander Bolshunov, who was two minutes behind the Norwegian before the start. But the race for Bolshunov did not work out. He came to the finish line seventh, even leaving Klebo ahead. However, Bolshunov kept the second place in the overall standings.
In addition to Bolshunov and Spitsov, Ivan Yakimushkin also got into the top 10 of the overall classification of the Tour de Ski – sixth place.
