In this event, four skiers from each country will compete in a relay format. Each skier goes through the same 10 kilometer track with the first two competitors racing in classic style and the last two skiers racing in freestyle format. The first team to complete the event wins the gold medal.

The defending world champions, Norway, have emerged as the favorites to win this event.

Norway enters the Olympics with odds of 1/2 according to online sports book SPORTSBETINNG.com. Other short odds to win are Germany (4/1), and Sweden (5/1).
