EVENT 7: TOBLACH-CORTINA

The 7th stage of the Visma Ski Classics Pro Tour, Toblach-Cortina, sets in motion tomorrow at 8:30 am CET with the women’s race, and the men start their 42 km long classic race at 9:10 am CET. 

The course has a sprint competition point at the Nordic Arena in Toblach at 11 km and one Climb point at the highest peak of the course at Cimabanche, 30 km into the race. Before the sprint, there is an easy section followed by a long gradual climb to the top. The last 12 km descend into Cortina where the finish is located in the heart of the town. 

In the men’s race, there are several potential winners, and many expect Team Ragde Eiendom’s strong athletes Petter Eliassen, Tord Asle Gjerdalen and Andreas Nygaard to perform well. Russian Winter Team’s Ermil Vokuev, the winner of La Venosta, is back in action and expected to push hard on the long climb along with the aforementioned Team Ragde Eiendom skiers. Gjerdalen has won the race three times in the past, and he is one of the strongest favorites.

The Marcialonga winner Tore Bjørseth Berdal, Team Koteng, is feeling a bit under the weather and may not start tomorrow, but his teammates Chris Andre Jespersen, Stian Hoelgaard, Andrew Musgrave and Torleif Syrstad are among the potential podium skiers. Other possible male winners could be Team Kaffebryggeriet’s Morten Eide Pedersen and Lager 157 Ski Team’s Emil Persson and Andreas Holmberg.

In the women’s race, Team Koteng’s Kari Vikhagen Gjeitnes, the Marcialonga winner, is ready to repeat the feat tomorrow while her teammate Astrid Øyre Slind is uncertain about racing as she has fallen sick. Britta Johansson Norgren, Lager 157 Ski Team, has had some problems in the last two races, but she is now confident that she can perform at her best possible level. So is Team Ramudden’s Lina Korsgren, who has overcome a long period of illness, and her third place at Marcialonga was a good proof of a successful recovery.

The weather is expected to be sunny and the temperature around zero with light wind in Toblach in the morning, and at the finish in Cortina, the temperature can rise up to 5 C by noon.
