Val Gardena celebrates 50 years of Ski World Cup. Since 1967 there is an annual World Cup race on the Saslong slope.
Coordinator Marcel Lipburger's WorldRacing team has already arrived one week before the World Cup start to use the optimum conditions for the piste and the long-standing snow conditions for some ski and wax tests.
Early Bird is the motto of the test week and the World Cup weekend.
While the valley is still asleep, our WR team is already on the slopes.
Tests at up to 130km / h were made out early in the morning from half past 7.
And then it's that time again: Racetime!
The whole HOLMENKOL team was able to follow an exciting race.
The mood in the finish line was top as always.
As always, you will find all results of the World Cup weekend by:
