European Ski Cross Cup
On Thursday and Friday at San Pellegrino Pass, two ski cross Europe Cup races
Another important international event that is about to land in Trentino and specifically in the ski area of San Pellegrino Pass. Thursday the 23rd and Friday the 24th of March, at the Cross Park Costabella, two ski cross Europe Cup are taking place, thanks to the organisation by Monti Pallidi association of Moena in partnership with FISI’s Trentino committee. Around a hundred athletes from eleven nations are lining up at the starting gates. Fifteen Italians will be there as well, eight of whom come from Trentino.
Men’s qualifying will begin on Saturday at 10.45 a.m., followed by women’s, starting at 11.20 a.m. Finals are taking place at 12.00 p.m. The slope, which has a development of 1200 metres with 150 metres of drop, has been for years Federal Training Centre of the Italian national teams and is particularly appreciated because it holds all the technical and security qualities. It’s a complete track that presents all kinds of parabolic turns: 3 negatives, rollers, dragons and 4 jumps.
