Less than two months to the cross-country skiing World Cup to begin. The 17th Tour de Ski is taking place between December 2022 and January 2023, with the hard Final Climb challenge deciding, as tradition wants, the greatest Champion. The stage in Val di Fiemme (6th-8th January) represents an important and awaited event in Trentino, as the worthy conclusion of the hardest and no-resting challenge of the season.
According to FIS autumn meeting taking place in Zürich some days ago, the World Cup sub-committee decided that the Tour de Ski Overall prize money will rise to a total of CHF 326'000.00 per gender to be split between the top 20 rankings. Other new changes regard points and scoring: Tour de Ski winner gets less points (300 instead of 400), in favour of other increasing, such as the third earning 270 points instead of 240, or the 8th, getting 207 instead of 128. The World Cup season 2022-2023 becomes more open, dynamic and equal, as the distances that, for the first time in history, are the same for either men or women.
Sprint and Mass Start 15 km CT take place along the ‘Olympic’ tracks of Lago di Tesero Cross-country Stadium, while the last crucial act is along Olimpia III on Alpe Cermis. Audience can experience the usual and spectacular 10 km FT, along which athletes heroically challenge a track usually attended by snowboarders, ski-alpinists and alpine skiers.
Tour de Ski is also fun and entertainment thanks to the side events presented by the O.C. Little XCO skiers can take part to the Coop Mini World Cup, which aims to promote skiing among young people inspired by their own idols. XCO lovers and ex-champions are taking part again for the 12th edition of the ‘cult’ event, “Rampa con i Campioni”. “Tour del Gusto” is back again to enjoy local food all together.
Enthusiasm and welcome guide more than 500 volunteers in Val di Fiemme that with the same determination of the first World Championships in 1991 are now dreaming of the Olympic Games of Milano-Cortina 2026.
The 17th Tour de Ski travels along three countries: Switzerland (Val Müstair) with Sprint on December 31st and 10 km on January 1st. Following, Germany (Oberstdorf) on January 3rd-4th and finally Italy with Val di Fiemme from 6th to 8th.
Italy is also hosting two other World Cup stages: Milan on 21st-22nd January and Toblach from 3rd to 5th February, in the wonderful Nordic Arena, already hosting a couple of Tour de Ski stages.
