Competition

The men's individual and women's sprint were moved from Holmenkollen, Norway to Skrautvål, Norway, due to rain and fog, with the planned relays being cancelled.[1] The fifth round of the World Cup was originally going to be held in Kokkola, Finland, but were moved to Skrautvål due to a lack of snow.[2][3]
