the weather conditions in Auronzo are not improving. Instead, now the very high level of snow on top of the mountains makes it dangerous and the danger of avalanches has reached the maximum level.
As a consequence, the city of Auronzo has forbidden yestareday any organisation on the site of Palus San Marco, where it is even too dangerous to try to prepare the trails, as the whole upper part of the trail is under very high risk of avalanches.
We have no other choice than cancel the European Championships in Auronzo.
as we comunicate yesterday, due to the insufficient snow conditions in Kraliky, the original date of the European Championship FISTC MD/LT 2014 has been postpone.
The new date of the race is 27.02.2014. - 02.03.2014.

With this chaotic winter it is difficult to follow the planned organisation of our FISTC Championships.
We have just been informed that in Kraliky, for the European Championships next week-end it is raining today and there is no enough snow left to organise the race. They are trying to find another date for the organisation of the mid and long Championships.
We should receive the information within a few days and of course will keep you posted immediately.
The FISTC Board
The cataclysmic weather conditions in Auronzo, where singe Friday they got over 4meters fresh snow and it wil continue snowing probably the whole week, lead us to cancel the race this week-end.
First of all most roads are closed and it is extremely difficult and dangerous to try to reach Palus san Marco (Auronzo).
Secondly, the stake-out and trails that were ready and perfect last Wednesday are under the snow and it becomes too difficult to prepare a good race under these conditions.
We are trying to reorganise the race for the 21-22-23 of February.
We apologise for the inconvenience, but the whole area has been declared yesterday evening under status of Natural Disaster and the Army is trying to help the population. Actually there are also water and electricity problems for the local population.
The FISTC Board.
As there is a lot of snow at this moment in Auronzo di Cadore, we are almost sure that we will be able to have a very beautiful Championship there.
