The FIS Nordic Combined and Ski Jumping World Cup seasons will soon kick off and Val di Fiemme (ITA) will give all fans the possibility to watch ‘live’ the races scheduled from 10th to 12th January, immediately after the renewed Tour de Ski with the final stage in the ‘cradle of Nordic skiing’. In January, Val di Fiemme will in fact host 12 World Cup races in ten days. The FIS Ski Jumping season will officially kick off from 22nd to 24th November in Wisla (POL), while the FIS Nordic Combined season will start with the traditional stage in Ruka (FIN) with three unmissable Gundersen. From Ruka the athletes will then move to Lillehammer (NOR) and Ramsau (AUT) to take part in the competitions scheduled for December. Then everyone will come to Val di Fiemme for both the Nordic Combined races and the Ski Jumping competitions, which last year returned to Trentino after a long absence. As far as the ski jumping season is concerned, after Poland the athletes will go to Finland, Russia, Norway, Germany and Switzerland before returning to Germany for the Four Hills Tournament that will end in Austria. Then they will reach Val di Fiemme and will be welcomed by the historic Fiemme Ski World Cup committee, which has been organising great sporting events – including World Cup races and World Championships – for over thirty years and which will also host the Olympic Games in 2026. The Nordic Combined races will take place on the large hill (HS135) – at the Ski Jump Arena in Predazzo – and in Lago di Tesero with the 10 km Gundersen (10th and 11th January), while the 2x7.5 km team sprint is scheduled for Sunday 12th January. In 2017, Alessandro Pittin and Samuel Costa were able to get on the podium in the team sprint. On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January there will also be the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup competitions on the large hill (HS135) at the 'Olympic' arena of Predazzo. The Italian ski jumpers must still improve – also according to coach Federico Rigoni – while the Italian Nordic Combiners have to make a leap in quality, with the return of Samuel Costa after a long stop and a slow rehabilitation last season: "I’ve trained well and now I'm ready to start again", said Costa. Alessandro Pittin, the best World Cup cross-country skier in the last two seasons, has to improve in the jump, but he is confident: "I'm having fun again at jumping and this gives me hope”. According to the athletes, the Norwegian Jarl Magnus Riiber is the favourite to win the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup. In the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup, Ryoyu Kobayashi will try to repeat the great season that in Val di Fiemme saw him almost reach the record of seven World Cup victories in a row – a feat never achieved by any athlete – before winning the overall title in the land of the Rising Sun.
