the standard has to be met but it would be ok to do it now. Either way, I will travel to St. Moritz on Sunday after the race.
I have very good memories from Rome. I did 13.11 there in 2000 to break Lasse Virens Nordic record and also had a good race there the year after. The track is very hard (like most southern European tracks) and fast. And the crowd and atmosphere is great.
I will race either at 20.40 Norw/Italian time or 21.08. Two different schedules out there. Either way it will be broadcasted directly on the Norwegian NRK2.
Last update before Rome 🙂
