SPEED / TELEMARK
From the turn of the thigh-burning, line jumping, cross-country skating Telemark to the exhilarating, straight-lining, shiny red suit-wearing Speed ski, here are two disciplines you won’t want to miss.
The Sprint (2 time trial runs, 1 minute duration)
The Dual Sprint (qualifying, followed by head-to-head knock outs, 40 second duration)
The Classic (1 time trial run, 2-3 minute duration)
All of the events include a Giant Slalom section, a jump with a clearance line, a 360 banked turn and a Cross-Country skate section.
This means that the fastest skier doesn't necessarily win, athletes must be fast and clean which makes the sport tactical and technical.
