The Program for the Race Between Toblach – Cortina
Thursday, February 1, 2018
You will arrange your individual travel to Toblach. Once there you will be able to settle down in your hotel room and, of course, there is dinner.
Friday, February 2, 2018
A hearty breakfast and then a free day for whatever you want to do. You can work on your skis, try out your equipment, but you must go to the registration site in the “Grand Hotel”, which you will find at the beginning of Toblach, There you will find where you can pick up your race bibs. Actually, you will only have to walk a little ways because your hotel is very close to the stadium and the Grand Hotel. Rest is in order for the remainder of the day. You can take a sauna now if you want. Diner.
Saturday, February 3, 2018—the 50-km Classic Race (Visma Classic Series)
A hearty breakfast again. The start of the race is at 10 a.m. The 50-km classic race starts with a 18-km circle around Toblach before it takes the direction of “Cimabanche” in order to arrive at the center of Cortina d’Ampezzo.
This course is perhaps one of the most beautiful in all of southern Europe. The ambiance is magical, going through tunnels and hills at about a 3 percent grade through the first 15 km. Then for the next 15 km there is a 3 percent grade downhill with a spectacular arrival in the center of a pedestrian-only street—a spectacle that will leave no one indifferent.
Sunday, February 4, 2018—the 30-km Freestyle (Skating) Race
A hearty breakfast again. Note, though, that you have to pack everything from your room before you leave for the race. Don’t despair, though, you will be able to use the Wellness Center after the race to lie down and rest before your trip home. The start is at Fiames, which is 2 miles above Cortina Village. You will finish at the Toblach stadium. Of course we have organized your transportation from the hotel to the start and it is included in the price. We can’t stress enough how fantastic the race course is and how excited you will be when you arrive at the finish in Toblach. Then you will have time to walk to the hotel for a much needed rest.
