In the pursuit of women Elvira Öberg snatched the first World Cup victory of her young career. Already since At the start of the season in Östersund, the rise of the Öberg sister paved the way, because the Swede had been dominating runners for weeks. Although Öberg has so far had to forego a victory, with the success in the pursuit she promises that Elvira Öberg could become one of the most successful athletes in the field in the coming years.

The young Swede is therefore once again the top favorite for the first mass start of the year. The betting providers see her as the most important contender for victory in the Sunday race and we also confirm Öberg's excellent chances. Starting out on the track together,

Dennoch bleiben auch ihre Konkurrentinnen brandgefährlich, wobei in der Königsdisziplin die üblichen Verdächtigen wieder mal punkten könnten. Gemeinsam auf die Strecke startend, we trust almost every athlete in the top 30 to achieve a top position. And at least ten women can also be found for victory, who could end up on the podium.

The favorites in the women's mass start

Sweden Elvira Öberg
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 2
Position in the Mass Start World Cup 2020/2021: -

With her victory in the pursuit Elvira Öberg is also recommended for betting on the overall victory at the mass start in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand. || | 503 Derzeit ist Elvira Öberg die absolut schnellste Langläuferin, wobei sie die Loipe in einer unglaublichen Form dominiert. Zwar sind wenige Schwächen am Schießplatz zu erkennen, doch auch am Stand löste sie ihre Probleme zuletzt vorbildlich.

The Swede already showed in the preparations and the national championships that she has a unique potential, and it will be more and more visible in the World Cup. It would therefore not surprise us if Elvira Öberg also wins the mass start, and we can therefore fully understand the low odds on the most important betting sites.

Norway Marte Olsbu Roeiseland
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 1
Position in the 2020/2021 Mass Start World Cup: 4

Marte Olsbu Roeiseland should also be viewed as equally strong. The Norwegian won three World Cups this winter. As the leader in the overall World Cup, Olsbu Roeiseland relies on a strong overall package, whereby she is one of the fastest athletes in terms of running and only rarely at the shooting range

Olsbu Roeiseland knows the pressure

In addition, the Norwegian is one of the most experienced athletes in the top field. Equipped with numerous world championship titles and two medals won at the Olympic Games, she knows how to withstand the pressure. Especially in the mass start, in which the women go out on the track together and they are compared in a direct duel, it is ultimately extremely important to keep calm. Olsbu Roeiseland has already shown in several races in her career that she easily has her nerves under control, which is why we also trust the Norwegian to win another mass start.

Sweden Hanna Öberg
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 6
Position in the 2020/2021 Mass Start World Cup: 7

Our third top favorite is Hanna Öberg. The older sister of the Öberg family is also richly endowed with precious metal, especially in the shooting-heavy disciplines. The mass start is next to the individual one of her favorite disciplines.

She is also in top form, and she is constantly improving in terms of running. Her strong form could be seen in the pursuit, in which she prevailed against Olsbu Roeiseland and Lisa Vittozzi in the final round. Third place in the pursuit and a victory in the Östersund sprint show that Hanna Öberg is one of the best women in the field, and we would hardly be surprised if her form can also be seen in the mass start.

Austria Lisa Theresa Hauser
Position in the overall World Cup 2021/2022: 5
Position in the 2020/2021 Mass Start World Cup: 6

With minor drawbacks, Lisa Theresa Hauser also remains a secret favorite for the mass start in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand. The ÖSV athlete also celebrated a sprint victory in Östersund, although she is to be expected especially in the shooting-heavy disciplines. Just like Hanna Öberg, Lisa Theresa Hauser is also known for her hit rates, because Hauser rarely reveals weaknesses on the shooting range. In terms of running, however, the Austrian can neither be compared with the Öberg sisters nor with Marte Olsbu Roeiseland. In the pursuit in particular, it became clear that Hauser had to make small compromises on the route. Should she get through the race again without a mistake, Lisa Theresa Hauser might be up for another surprise.

Biathlon mass start of the women in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand - further podium candidates

Weitere Podestathletinnen sind bei den Weißrussinnen zu finden. Hanna Sola and Dzinara Alimbekava have been in the top 10 for weeks and a comparable performance can also be expected in the mass start. Sola is one of the fastest athletes on the field, while Alimbekava proves her strength on the shooting range. For the mass start of the ladies in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand we therefore see Alimbekava start with better chances, so we would like to add them to the wider circle of favorites.

Wierer and Vittozzi are gaining momentum

Ebenso finden sich im italienischen Aufgebot zwei starke Athletinnen. Dorothea Wierer ist seit Jahren für Podestränge zu haben und auch Lisa Vittozzi findet sich in diesem Jahr wieder besser zurecht. Die beiden Italienerinnen sind nach ihren Top-10-Rängen in der Verfolgung ebenfalls Anwärterinnen auf eine Spitzenposition.

Zuletzt sind aber auch die Französinnen in ihrer Heimat stark unterwegs. Anais Bescond wurde Sprint-Zweite und Julia Simon errang in der Verfolgung ebenfalls den zweiten Platz. Komplettiert wird das Aufgebot der Lokalmatadorinnen durch Justine Braisaz-Bouchet und Anais Chevalier-Bouchet. Beide sind auf der Strecke extrem schnell unterwegs, das Schießen bleibt allerdings ihre große Schwäche.

It is hard to predict how the Kenyan women will fare. Denise Herrmann is extremely fast this week, but after making six mistakes in the pursuit, we don't expect that she will get through the mass start with a clean slate. It also remains uncertain whether Franziska Preuss can start. Preuss has been doing strong in the last few weeks, but after stumbling while preparing for the sprint, she had to skip the first two races in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand and a possible start in the mass start is still pending. For the mass start of the women in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand we therefore advise against betting on the betting odds of the DSV athletes.

Forecast & betting base trend - who will win the biathlon Mass start of the women in Annecy - Le Grand-Boranand?

With an extremely dense level of performance among the biathletes, numerous athletes can be found with a chance of victory. In the end, three top favorites, Hanna and Elvira Öberg and Marte Olsbu Roeiseland, stood out, who dominate the field, especially on the track. The three Scandinavians are also shooting solid results, which means they have the best chances for the mass start. In the betting base odds comparison the Öberg sisters and Olsbu-Roeiseland are not the top stocks for nothing.

Other podium contenders are Lisa Theresa Hauser and the Belarusians, French and Italians. For Kenya we see Herrmann starting promisingly, but she should increase her hit rate significantly.

Key facts - Biathlon mass start for women in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand

  • Elvira Öberg wins in pursuit of her first World Cup
  • Marte Olsbu Roeiseland leads the overall World Cup
  • numerous athletes hope for the podium

Ultimately, Elvira Öberg, her sister and Marte Olsbu stay Roeiseland our three most important contenders for victory. It is difficult to predict which athlete will actually win in the end. Of course, there are arguments for each of the athletes, but there is hardly any clear advantage to be found. After the Pursuit victory, we are most likely to see Elvira Öberg at the mass start of the women in Annecy - Le Grand-Bornand compliant with the betting odds. However, we can also bet on Hanna Öberg or Marte Olsbu Roeiseland.
