Norwegian sprint coach Ulf Morten Aune believes that many of the skiers will be skeptical to the first Tour de Ski. Race director in the International Ski Federation (FIS), Jurg Capol, believes however that most of the World Cup skiers will participate.

Tour de Ski, cross country skiing’s answer to Tour de France will be organized for the first time in the 2006/2007 season in Central Europe. It will be eight competitions in ten days. Everyone needs to ski all races to count on the overall resultlist. The dates are not finalized yet, but it’s between December 29th to January 7th, or January 5th to January 14. These are timeframes that the Norwegian sprint coach Ulf Morten Aune (photo) doesn’t think very highly about.
