Kristian Chek/Maxim Cherenkov took control of the leaderboard from day 2, leaving the remaining podium battle to unfold behind.

Going into the final race Boris Kucherenko/Alexander Moskvichev were 2nd overall, carrying a narrow 1 point advantage over Daniil Banayan/Maxim Berdnikov. But a disappointing 4th place finish knocked them down to finish third, with a race win pushing Banayan/Berdnikov up to second.

Second to the winners of last year’s Junior Championship, Olga Shoikhet/Anastasia Pustynnikova in tenth overall. Third in the women’s fleet and 12 overall were Alexandra Lepina/Maria Myakisheva.
