Dario Cologna reached his first goal in stage 6 of the Tour de Ski in Val di Fiemme. In the classic sprint, the Graubünden qualified as 29th of the prologue in extremis for the quarterfinals.
The four-time tour winner, who is currently ninth overall, saved a reserve of three hundredths to 31st place across the finish line and will now win at least a few bonus seconds. Ueli Schnider also reached the knockout stages two ranks ahead of Cologna. As expected, Norway’s Johannes Hösflot Klaebo had the best time.
