Prize Money & World Cup Points

Due to the lack of snow and mild weather it was impossible to organize the first two competitions in Nove Mesto na Morave (CZE). This program change also led to a 25% reduction in prize money. Altogether, the FIS Tour de Ski 2006/2007 prize money will amount to 750.000 Swiss Francs.

Peter Schlickenrieder (GER) in Munich

Munich is ready

The top athletes will have optimal conditions at the opening Stage and the premiere of the Viessmann FIS Cross-Country World Cup in the Olympic stadium in Munich. Approximately 4500 sqm snow are necessary to prepare perfect tracks in the stadium; 80% has already been produced and is being stored in a ‘cool-tent’.

Peter Schlickenrieder, Olympic silver medalist from Salt Lake City 2002 and a Cross-Country Skiing commentator for German TV, has already tested the snow in the Olympic stadium and was quite impressed: “To compete in this stadium in a World Cup competition — that must be a dream for all athletes. I’m sure that Munich will be an absolute highlight of the Tour de Ski, especially if the weather and snow will be like today.”

Leader Bibs

To make it easy for the viewers and spectators to identify the current leaders — the overall and sprint ranking leader – of the Tour de Ski, FIS worked together with the official Tour Sponsors Viessmann and Craft to design specific Tour leader bibs.

The current overall Tour leader will wear a Golden Tour Leader Bib in the name of the Tour’s Title Sponsor Viessmann. And the current Sprint Ranking leader will carry a Silver Tour Leader Bib by Craft Sportswear.
