The 32-year-old from Ternopil managed to complete a relay (9th place) and a sprint (55th) in Soldier Hollow.

"The stage in America is over for me. I limited myself to two races, and I won't start in the pursuit because I don't feel well. There is the last stage in Canada, so I need to recover in time to do the final races of the 2023/2024 season," Pidruchnyi wrote on his Instagram.
