Tour de Ski and Marcialonga presented in Milan (11.11.2010)
« previous page

A new amazing cross country skiing season in Trentino

The official presentation of the main Nordic ski events taking place in Italy’s Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa, was staged last Tuesday inside the Milan RAI (Italian Broadcasting Company) studios.
During what appeared much more like a talk show than a proper press conference, the Nordic Ski Fiemme and Marcialonga committees announced detailed programmes of the Tour de Ski leg and Marcialonga race, both scheduled for next January, 2013 FIS Nordic Ski World Championships and 2014 FIS Nordic Junior and Under 23 Ski World Championships.
Acclaimed sport journalist Ivana Vaccari presented the talk show and interviewed special guests such as former alpine ski racer Alberto Tomba, cross-country ski champions Cristian Zorzi and Fabio Santus, 1988 World Road racing champion Maurizio Fondriest, FIS Race Director Jürg Capol, alpine ski racers Karen Putzer and Kristian Ghedina, and former XC skier Guidina Dal Sasso, five time winner of the notorious Marcialonga, the 70 km long distance ski marathon through the alpine Fiemme and Fassa valleys.
The two Nordic Ski Fiemme and Marcialonga organizing committees, presided by Pietro De Godenz and Alfredo Weiss, have been working hard for all their events in order to concretely create a better and healthier image of the region they live and operate in.
Other than the sport aspects, Tour de Ski and all the future World events aim to improve the quality of life of the people living and working in Val di Fiemme. For instance, during the Tour de Ski days (January 8th and 9th, 2011), the Nordic Ski Fiemme OC will be once again organizing outdoor and indoor events such as ‘Fiemme Folk’ and ‘Fiemme Rock’ with music live performances, ‘Fiemme Arena’ with several entertaining activities for kids and grown-ups, the ‘South Nordic Festival’ and ‘Tour del Gusto’, the chance to taste the delicacies from the local traditional cuisine and enjoy the music and the many fun activities.
On Sunday January 9th, a few hours before the Tour de Ski Final Climb, the ‘Rampa con i Campioni’ race will take place, an international, promotional open free technique race for those who want to experience some great World Cup XC skiing.
Concerning the 2011 Marcialonga, around 7.200 skiers will gather at the start and enjoy the two courses of 70 Km (starting in Moena and finishing in Cavalese) and 45 Km (the Marcialonga Light from Moena to Predazzo). Along with the Sunday’s race (January 30th, 2011), the Minimarcialonga for children and the Marcialonga for Vips & Guests are scheduled on the day before, while on Sunday morning the Marcialonga Young will make its debut, a full programme of mass start and classic technique races reserved to the youth categories.
Next year’s Marcialonga is part of both the prestigious Worldloppet circuit and the FIS Marathon Cup, and forms the Combined Event ‘Punto3 Craft’ together with 2011 Marcialonga Cycling (May) and Marcialonga Running (September).
