The Nordic Weekend took place in Oberstdorf last weekend. In addition to the Nordic combination, two cross-country skiing races were also held as a ‘dress rehearsal’ for the 2021 World Cup. The new routes proved to be very good and varied.
Rapid descents, steep and strength-sapping climbs and a loop rising over the newly built function building in the stadium offered spectators exciting races, but demanded a lot from the athletes. The service teams were also faced with a challenge since the skiathlon required a lot of preparation and the classic sprint the following day was no easy task in the rather warm temperatures.
The dress rehearsal in now over - and we can look forward to 2021.
