Maurice Manificat is in beautiful shape and has shown on Saturday on the snow of Toblach (Italy). The French took the second place in the 15 km free, ten seconds to the leader of the Norwegian Simen Krueger. Johannes Klaebo (+35″2), leader of the general standings of the world Cup, finished in tenth place, something to increase his lead over Russian Alexander Bolshunov, and Norwegian Martin Sundby.
Party in 70th position, Manificat is very quickly installed in the right rhythm. It has, however, never got close to the reference time of Simen Krueger, untouchable on the last third of the race. Briton Andrew Musgrave has signed him for the third time of the race, less than a second of Manificat (+0″9). Maurice Manificat will aim for a good result on Sunday, on the occasion of the prosecution.
