The 2018 edition of China Tour de Ski in the end went as expected to pre-race favourites Simon Persson and Jacqueline Lockner. The two Swedish skiers did not allow themselves to be upset by their main competitors on the final ski sprint in Yanqing.
Swedish skier Jacqueline Lockner has firmly established herself as the queen of the ski sprints in this year's China Tour de Ski as she again beat the field in Yan'an today. On the other hand, Simon Persson failed to do the same in the men's. He got eliminated in the semis and Norwegian Ragnar Andresen took top honours.
China's Tang Jinle won an exciting sprint finish in the men's Vasaloppet China classic style ski marathon, the third stage of the 2018 China Tour de Ski. Best woman was Russia's Marina Chernousova.
