From 6 to 7 February, 2013, Latvian Skiing Association in cooperation with Madona city council and Madona children and youth sports school once again will organize stage of the Scandinavian cup in cross country skiing in Madona, skiing and biathlon centre “Smecersils”. Latvia has the honor and in the same time also pleasure to host high level cross country skiing competition with world class athletes from Nordic countries, from other continents, neighboring and other countries.

Latvian Ski Association will organize the second strongest competition in cross country skiing circuit – the FIS Scandinavian Cup already the sixth year, but third year in a row it will take place in skiing centre Madona, which is located round 150km from capital Riga. Scandinavian cup season has already begun with first stage taking place last weekend in Sjusjoen in Norway, but Latvia will host the third stage. For the fourth year Latvian stage will include two days competition, but for the first time it will be no sprint event, as it has been all the five previous years. Competition program includes distance races – on first day will be in classical style with interval start (5km for ladies, 10km for men) and on the second in free style with mass start (10km for ladies and 15km for men). Last year participants saw that course is quite demanding and organizers managed to prepare very good the skiing course. 

Last years not only Scandinavians took part, but also participants from USA, Canada and Australia. Scandinavian cup in Madona as always is just a two days before Scandinavian cup in neighboring Estonia (Joulumae) and three days after inaugural World cup stage in upcoming Olympic Games hosting place Sochi. It is possible also to organize trainings in Madona before and after the Scandinavian cup.
