Norwegian sprinters already in Chile, the French colleagues will pass by Zermatt before the trip overseas
The program of many big names, among the downhill racers of the world circuit, has been upset by the lack of snow in many places.If the Azzurri are already at work since the beginning of the week in Ushuaia, where conditions are ideal, for example the Norwegian national speed team arrived yesterday in Nevados de Chill├án, to begin the gathering that sees Kjetil Jansrud, Aleksander aamodt Kilde engaged and companions in the mountains of the Chilean Andes.
The same locality that, only from next September 15th until October 10th, will see French colleagues arrive, from Theaux to Roger; yes, because as we all know the French have had to change everything after saying goodbye to the possibility of skiing in La Parva, also in Chile, and have thus postponed the date and place of the key training of this seasonal period.
The boys of the head coach Xavier Fournier have thus retreated to Zermatt, where they will meet for a few days starting on Monday 26 August, before being able to alternate with the Norwegians in Nevados de Chill├án. "In Zermatt we will do two days of training in giant and two of super-g - explains the same Fournier - The preparation has been turned upside down, the boys will do more physical work now than expected, but we are confident that we can get closer to the trip in Chile.
