The 2015 China Tour de Ski is ready to start in Jingyuetan Park in Changchun, Jilin, on new year's day.

This year's stage race will begin with a new prologue sprint in Deer Valley, but it is of course the 50km classic style Vasaloppet China that draws most attention.

The 80 participants, more than half of them international athletes, will have a bit of time to recover from the new year's eve celebrations as the prologue is scheduled to start only in the afternoon.

It will be a good way to warm up for the marathon race the next day, in which defending champion Anders Hoegberg will again be the one to beat.

The Swedish veteran will not take part in the other stages in Xiwuqi and Nalati this season, so clearly he will give it his all to score a fifth victory in Changchun.

His main rivals on Thursday could become USA's Peter Madsen Kling and Norway's young Petter Reistad.

One of the big favourites for the overall China Tour de Ski title is Robin Bryntesson from Sweden, but unlike his compatriot Hoegberg he seems more of a sprinter than an endurance skier.

For Bryntesson's chances it will thus be important to focus on grabbing some points along to the next stages in Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang, which should suit his style more.
