Norway's Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo took a huge step towards securing the overall World Cup crystal globe with victory in Saturday's 15km mass start in Quebec.

Klaebo profited from the fact that his main rival for the overall title, Russia's Alexander Bolshunov, finished down in seventh.

The 22-year-old was too strong for the rest of the field, holding off home favourite Alex Harvey in a tight finish to secure the victory in 36:10.9 minutes.

Harvey was just 0.8 seconds behind with Klaebo's compatriot Didrik Toenseth not far behind in third.

Klaebo will take a 52-second advantage over Bolshunov into the individual pursuit on Sunday and that should be more than enough to see him secure his second overall World Cup title in a row.
