U.S. Ski & Snowboard has announced the first 14 athletes of the Davis U.S. Cross Country Ski Team that will compete at the 2021 FIS Cross Country World Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany, Feb. 22 – March 7.

“We will be nominating more athletes to this team,” said Davis U.S. Cross Country Program Director Chris Grover. “Many of our best domestic performances this season have come from some of our younger athletes, and because of this, we want to evaluate performances at the upcoming Junior and U23 World Championships (Feb. 8-14 in Vuokatti, Finland) and name additional athletes to this World Championships Team on Feb. 15.”

Additional athlete considerations will also be evaluated following this weekend’s FIS Cross Country World Cup in Ulricehamn, Sweden, as well as the FIS World Cup in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic, Feb. 20-21. Grover anticipates the total team size will be closer to 18 athletes.

World Cup leader Jessie Diggins leads a team stacked with veteran and up-and-coming talent, including 2020 Junior World Champion Gus Schumacher, who has scored World Cup points in his past 10-consecutive starts while competing in his first World Cup season. Based on this season’s success, the team is highlighting a number of events in Oberstdorf, including the classic sprint on Feb. 25; the team sprint on Feb. 27; the women’s 10k freestyle on March 2; the women’s 4x5k team relay on March 4; and the men’s 4x10k relay March 5.

NBC’s streaming platform, Peacock Premium, will live stream all the events of the 2020-21 FIS Cross Country tour this season. NBCSN, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA will broadcast select World Championships events. Cross Country broadcast and streaming listings will be available throughout the season at USSkiandSnowboard.org.
