The winners of the 15-km Men’s Mass Start were Didrik Toenseth (third), Alex Harvey (second) and Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo (first). However, the two Norwegian skiers recognized Harvey as the unofficial winner of the event.

Cross-country skier Alex Harvey is Quebec City’s reigning prince. Completely humble, he wanted to end his international career on the podium at the FIS Cross-country Skiing World Cup Finals on the Plains of Abraham, which took place from March 22 to 24. He had three opportunities to accomplish his final dream: the 1.6-km Freestyle Sprint, the 15-km Mass Start and the 15-km Pursuit.
