It is only 3 weeks until the first ever Lidingoloppet in China. A cross country running event that will be combined with amusing celebrations of the Swedish Midsummer festival on June 21st.
The skiers from Europe and some other countries, that are here in China for the summer Ski Sprint in Changbai Mountain, stopped
one day in Changchun to test the running tracks for Lidingoloppet China. It was a very nice day of running, the weather was perfect, and the tracks were very good. All the skiers are very satisfied, most of them did the 15K but some of them tried the tough 30K track as well.
Today the group will continue their trip to Changbai Mountain where the Nordic Ways arena & track-team is already onsite, working hard with finalizing the ski tracks. The snow has been preserved during the winter, and now they are shoveling and shoveling to make a good ski track out of it.
“Things are definitely under control. The tracks are already set, we just have to widen the tracks in some certain areas with the masses of snow we have left. Today we even got some sunshine when shoveling”, says Anders Eek from Nordic Ways who is very positive towards the competitions.
