From 13th till15th June 2012, we attended the grand XC Skitest in the DKB Skisport arena in Oberhof for you. As a partner of the popular trade magazine and web portal XC Ski, the TOKO test team spent three days there. Apart from the general preparation and the preparation of the skis, the most exciting part is of course the testing of the skis. Numerous ski companies send their new material for the various fields of application to Oberhof. From racing skis to everyday skis, the independent TOKO test team tests and evaluates the skis. Push off features, sliding features, handling etc.

To be prepared for the coming seasons, we intensely test things in the winter and summer months. During the last two weeks, we have been using the “laboratory” conditions of the Oberhof ski arena. In the DKB Skisport arena, there are nearly perfect testing conditions, it is calm and the snow conditions are stable and can be changed slightly by the service technicians of the ski arena. Thank you very much for that!

In Gällivare, Sweden, the cross-country world cup has started under best conditions. The season was opened with the women’s 10 km race and the men’s 15 km race. Marit Björgen is and remains the ultimate benchmark of the women. During the men’s race, the participants were slightly affected by the starting snowfall. The Norwegian Martin Sundby coped best with the conditions. The relay races that were held on Sunday were also dominated by the Norwegian teams who showed their standard right from the beginning of the season. In the men’s relay race, the Swiss won a good 4th place.

Weltcup Opening 2012/2013 Östersund

Last Sunday, the biathlon season 12/13was opened with the mix relay. The day before, it did not look quite like winter in Mid-Sweden. In light rain and temperatures above 0, the material was eagerly tested. Teams and athletes were slightly nervous as no one was quite sure how the work and the training during the summer months would pay off. On Sunday, the temperatures fell below 0, with -4°C and snow, it was justified to talk about “winter sport”.

After the race, the first stress was gone.

The first women’s speed race was held in Lake Louise, Canada. The skiers had to cope with bad weather conditions. The light snowfall and the thick fog was a great challenge for all. The dominating speeding specialist of the last season had the least trouble. Lindsey Vonn won the first race with an advance of 1.73 seconds before Stacey Cook. Thus two Americans were able to celebrate their victory. The third place was shared between the German Maria Höfel-Riesch and the Liechtensteiner Tina Weirather. They were beaten by one hundredth second by Stacey Cook.

This weekend, the sprinters visited Quebec, Canada. The event started with the team sprint in front of the parliament building.

The local hero and world champion Alex Harvey started vividly into the race together with his partner Devon Kershaw. They demonstrated their fitness to the euphoric domestic audience. The two were however stopped by a fall. The Kasakh and the Russion team profited from the fall and showed a dramatic finisch. Only after closely watching the film, the Kasakh relay was declared the winner. It was their first victory in a team sprint. Norway came in third.
