Telemark World Cup
20-21 January, 2019, La Thuile

An Italian town has been included for the second time in the history of the Telemark World Cup racing calendar: La Thuile.

The races will be contested on the same run that hosted three women's World Cup races in February 2016 and two Telemark world cup races in January 2017.

Piste number 3 in the ski area, named after Franco Berthod, an athlete who helped forge the history of Alpine skiing in La Thuile, is one of the most technically interesting.

It's a black run which descends from Les Suches plateau through the forests above La Thuile, reaching the town after almost three kilometres of challenging walls and sweeping corners.
