Summary

The defending champion and 2009 World Champion, Estonia's [Andrus Veerpalu], did not contest the event, starting only in the 50 km in Vancouver. This likely left [Lukáš Bauer] (CZE) as the favorite. Bauer was leading the 2009-10 World Cup, had won the distance and overall World Cup in 2007-08, and was runner-up to Veerpalu in the 15 km at the 2009 Worlds. With skiers setting off at 30 second intervals, [Maurice Manificat] (FRA) took an early lead in the competition, leading at the first two intermediate markers, and would eventually finish sixth with a time of 34:27.4. [Pietro Piller Cottrer] (ITA), who had won the test event at the course some 12 months earlier, had been quoted as saying that the course was too easy, and as he skied into a lead with a time of 34:00.9, it looked as though he may win gold. However, out on the course [Dario Cologna] (SUI), who had won the 2009 Tour de Ski, was the leader at the final check point and took the lead with a time of 33:36.3, a time which would easily hold up for the gold medal, giving Switzerland its first ever gold in cross-country skiing. Bauer followed home in a time of 34:12.0 to take the bronze medal, narrowly defeating [Marcus Hellner] (SWE) who was always close to a medal spot on the course, but just faded at the end to finish 1.5 seconds behind Bauer. He would later win a pursuit gold in Vancouver. Finishing in 94th place was [Roberto Carcelén], the first ever Winter Olympian from Peru.
