Nordic Combined World Cup starts with a bang

International Ski Federation - Kuusamo, Finland - - The wait is over! From this weekend on it will be all about races, results, points and podiums again for the elite of the Nordic Combined athletes when their season kicks off in Kuusamo, Finland again.

The winter season, peppered with highlights like the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi and the Nordic Combined Triple in Seefeld, will have a flying start near the Finnish polar circle where the fortitude of the athletes will be tested to the maximum right at the beginning. Known for often difficult conditions and extreme cold, Ruka's HS 142 Rukatunturi hill will demand the utmost of concentration and a tough cross-country course a maximum of stamina - the perfect venue to find out who is among the best of the ultimate winter athletes of Nordic Combined!

All three disciplines are gathered together in Ruka, a small ski resort about 30 kilometres away from Kuusamo which offers alpine slopes but also two ski jumping hills and many cross-country tracks only a 5-minute walk from the cosy village centre.

As this is the season opening, the first competitions will be mostly about getting a feeling for the level of performance required in this Olympic winter and to see how the competition is doing. Big names like Eric Frenzel and Jason Lamy Chappuis will certainly be the standard that everyone is comparing to. But as we know, the sport always writes its own stories. We certainly can't wait for the first chapter in the book of 2013/14.
