The title in the endurance race will be defended by Norwegian Sturla Holm Laegreid, who already confirmed his form at the championship in Germany with bronze in the sprint and silver in the chase. But the main favorite will be his compatriot Johannes Thingnes Bö, the king of the current season, who has dominated both individual races at the WC.
