The Norwegian men’s sprint team is dropping their planned Les Diablerets camp due to flooding. They are heading for Ramsau instead.


The Norwegian sprint team should have spent the first part of their altitude camp in Les Diablerets, Switzerland, but the team is due to the flooding that’s ravaging big part of Europe at the moment, heading for Ramsau instead.

– We would have liked to go to Les Diablerets, but the weather there has been very bad, and the glacier we should have skied on is full of water, explains sprint coach Ulf Morten Aune.

– The skiing is still good in Ramsau. That’s why we’ll go there.

The sprint team will be there for the first week of their camp. The distance team will be in Stelvio and stay at 2800-meters for the first week. We will stay at 1100 meter in Ramsau and ski up high on the glacier. We can for that reason train harder since we are resting at lower altitude. We will ski in the morning and do dryland training in the afternoon, says Aune who doesn’t want to discuss the details of their training plan.

– There are some that are completely copying what we do. That’s not good, and that’s why we now only are revealing rough outlines of what we do, explains the coach.

The team is leaving for Livigno where they will be with the men and women’s team. There they will live at 1800 meter until September 12.
