100 days to go – 2nd FIS Tour de Ski

Thu, Sep  20, 2007 - By FIS

There are just 100 days today until the start of the 2nd edition of the Viessmann FIS Tour de Ski 2007/2008 performance by Craft Sportswear on December 28th, 2007. In early September, a team of Tour Board members led by FIS Race Director Cross-Country Jürg Capol visited the future Tour sites (Nove Mesto, Prague, Oberstdorf, Asiago and Val di Fiemme) to discuss the status of preparations and to iron out the final logistical details.

"Especially the visit in Prague was important since Prague will be organizing its first-ever World Cup event. The sprint will take place in the famous Old Town area in front of the Prague Castle which celebrated its 650th anniversary this year. That's a pretty nice background for a city sprint," said Capol. "The visit in Val di Fiemme was also a big step forward. Together with the different stakeholders including representatives of TV, the OC and the rights holder Infront Italy, we optimized the arrangements for the last Stage and especially for the Final Climb to Alpe Cermis."
