The round combines the World Cup with European Championships. The program is strictly sprint focused and follows the same program as major sprint Championships.
Neuchâtel is situated in the French speaking parts of western Switzerland. The town is mid-sized and situated on the shores of a beautiful lake. The town is big enough to be able to provide good terrain for all sprint distances. The streets are winding and offer interesting and difficult route choices. Some parts are, even with Swiss measures, rather hilly, making the route choices even more tricky.
Parallel with the World Cup, fans and spectators can utilize the holiday weekend to combine the event with public races. The Swiss audience is well known for being enthusiastic so we can expect a great atmosphere in the city arena.
“I recommend athletes to prepare well for the races. High speed training with high focus will pay off.”, says Event Director Matthias Niggli.
