Nordic skiing – cross-country skiing without Norwegians – sport

The Norwegian cross-country skiers will not take part in the World Cups in Davos and Dresden in December and the Tour de Ski in January due to the risk of infection with the corona virus. “After detailed internal discussions, we believe that it is the right thing for cross-country skiers,” said the chairman of the cross-country committee Torbjörn Skogstad. The Norwegians want to concentrate on the Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf (February 23 to March 7) and avoid infections.
