Perspective: the clown of the tour time is over! FIS has destroyed a brilliant idea
The international ski federation have three options: change the Tour de Ski radically, forcing all the stars, or stop the whole event. Probably it chooses, however, the fourth, write the Val di fiemme from Santtu Silvennoinen.Demolition derby and conga. This sight is familiar Oberstdorfista Tour de Skillä. EPA / AOP

When the Tour de Ski began in the 2006-07 season, the milestone was eight, the prize money was divided between 280 000 and waypoints to the best 8 800, ski a mile for women was 58 + two-yard dash for men and 99,5 + two-yard dash. the Included were practically all of the best skiers .

the Tour, though a contraction of the two leg amount lumipula, so the above figures are planned, are not fully materialize.

Season 2018-19 waypoints was seven, the prize money was distributed to 207 000 euros, and decompression of the best 5 to 300, ski miles of women was 49 + two-yard dash for men and 69 + 2 sprint test. The world's ten best women Tour left between four (Therese Johaug, Charlotte Kalla, Ragnhild Haga and Ebba Anderson), husband of one (Iivo Niskanen).

. Renowned drop-the list is long: Stina Nilsson, Emil Iversen, Astrid Jacobsen, Ida Ingemarsdotter, Alexei Poltora, Yevgeny Belov, Matti Heikkinen and Maiken Caspersen Falla. The list could still add a couple of star sprinter.

First guess, who will go and who will leave the tour in between. Then speculation, who to interrupt and when.

Between horrified to extorsion events: Val Müstairin motocross countries, the sprint to the line or Oberstdorf common departure demolition derby.

Sometimes there is more than logistics. Geographically not proceed logically, but driving the alpine roads here and there. Those who perform the tour through and fly home from Munich, sitting in the car a little over a week during the about 1 500 miles. Wouldn't be the worst Autobahn along, but trip stopped in at almost two-thirds of the syheröisellä serpentiinillä.

Finally, annoyed at the prize money of shrinkage and consider what kind of an advantage over Johaug and other rest receive the world cup.


the Next season guess and abort speculations is not because the value of the race without year all the best skiers are involved.

– it Is clear that this time see expenditure may continue in season 2020-21, admitted even by the tour's father Jürg Capol VG's interview.

the FIS has three options: stop the tour, to reform it more rational and raise the prize money or to force all the stars. the Swedish expressen's reporter Tomas Petterson presented in his column, that Tour without a medical reason aside remaining athletes would be close to the same season of the world championships .

the FIS decisions are usually linjattomia, so it is unlikely to take any of the three above-mentioned options. FIS recommended is the "torture option": tour to do a little remodeling, but really nothing changes.

the evening paper to the sports studio in the expert Toni Fools opened before the Tour de Skin, the climax, why do so many of the top skier's left of the tour.
