DAY 2: Saturday 19 november.

 

Today the weather was cloudy in the morning, but low temperatures created excellent conditions for the race.

Races started at 10 am with the Middle distance classes. in most categories, but not all, the teams that were at the first place yesterday confirmed their position and often increased the gap with the second. We have a full Czech monopoly on first position  in all MD Cart classes, with from category MD-O to MD-C2 5 Czech mushers leading their respective classes, Roman Habasko, Pacit Zdenek, Romana Guregova, Jaroslav Charouz and Vojtech Nemec, but this is no surprise as Czech Republic is the country where we have more longtrailers.

So only in non cart categories we had other countries showing up. In Bike -2 Men the leader is Laszlo Domonkos from Serbia, Bike-2 Women is leaded by Nathalie Roland from France, in Bike-1 Men the leader is Jan Neger from Slovakia and Austrian Elisabetz Smejkal-Hayn is first in Bike-1 Women.

In sprint, positions are not as clear as in MD and the third heat may well bring some changes and surprises.

In A class, Karl Rachbauer (AUT) and Knud Schmolz (DEN) are fighting for the first place. In B1 Maros Litvaj (SVK) is followed by Attila Kiss (HUN), while the B2 class is promised as usual to Bernd Sauerhöfer (GER). The podium of the C1 class is very uncertain as the first four teams are very close to each other, even if the first is the Austrian junior Larissa Wiwner. The podium of the c2 class will be German for sure and the present leader is Frank Schölles.In D1, the first four teams are in 45 seconds so nothing is sure and the Hungarian leader, Zoltanne Varga should do her best tomorrow to keep her leadership. D2 class is leaded by the French junior Theo Kentzinger with two Greenland dogs just before another French Marc Brocard also with two Greenland dogs.

Competition in Bike and scooter classes is really tough and no podium is yet sure. In Bike 1- 2dogs M the leader is actually Igor Stefan (SVK), and by the women Junior Linea Kamper Pedersen is first. Bike 2-2 dogs is leaded by French Raphael Perrin. Roman Reistetter (SVK) is the leader in Bike 1-1 M, and Austrian Lisa Klaushofer in Bike 1-1W. In Bike 2-1 M three French mushers are fighting for the podium with Jean-Michel Hoog at the first place.

In scooter 1-2dogs M Russian Alexey Tarazanov is first and Moldovan Alexandr Bannicov is second. In Sc1-2W Hungarian Kitti  Köffer is first. Russia, Estonia and Moldova should be on the podium of class SC2-2M, leaded actually by Pavel Otbetkin. Germans Stefan Finzel and Stefanie Wunsch are respectevely leading the classes Sc1 - 1 Men and women. Sepp Brugger is th eleader in clas SC 2-1 M and Priscilla Neureiter from Portugal leads the women class.

In canicross we had the second day of Mass start, while tomorrow th estart will be with real time intervals. In CC2dogs M Seabastian Astelbauer is first, while Hungarian Zsuzsanna Gyurovics leads CC2dogs W. Michal Ivanco /SVK) and Oleg Frolov (RUS) will compete for the first place in CC1M as will Edina Koris (HUN) and Gabriela Lehka (CZE) by the women. Theo Kentzinger (FRA) leads the junior class as does Virag Kiss-Toth in Junior Girls. Finally the young junior class is leaded by Slovak Tamara Ivancova.

Tomorrow the third day with a good weather as it is forecast will be really exciting.

DAY 1 : Friday 18 November.

 

As from Wednesday. the lovely city of Ottenschlag has been invaded by a huge number of sled dogs and their mushers. In fact 197 mushers coming from 17 countries arrived to compete in these FISTC Cart European Championships that started yesterday, with the traditional controls, both vetcheck and pedigree and dogpasses controls. In the evening the beautifull opening ceremony took all participants from the city center to the 12th Century Castle, a really beautiful event. During the ceremony, everybody could already feel that we started participating in an exceptionnal event, thanks to the efforts made by the whole community and the Major, Mrs Christa JAGER, as well as by the Austrian club ÖSHS leaded by its President Erich Astelbauer.

This morning the weather was perfect, cold (+2°C) and sunny. First in start the 42 teams running the Mid-distance race on one of the most beautifull trails in Europe. In MD O Roman Habasko has taken the lead and second is Jana Henychova, both from Czech Republic. In MD A, another Czech musher, Pacit Zdenek, is first but at the second place we have a Swiss musher, Thomas Kämpf. Two other czech mushers are on top of B class, Romana Guregova being closely followed by Tomas Toman. MD races with carts are a Czecz specialty as also the other two classes are led by mushers from that country, Jaroslav Charouz in C1 and Vojtech Nemec in C2.

In MD bikes classes, mushers from other countries had more chances and the leaders after this first heat are Laszlo Domonkos from Serbia in Bike 2dogs men, Ines Wasle from Austria in Bike 2 women, Jan Neger from Slovakia in Bike 1 men and Elisabeth Smejkal-Hayn in Bike 1 women. However, all participants were 100% happy about the fantastic trail in such a beautifull nature.

In sprint also we had a total success. Actually in most categories the first teams are so close that nobody can foresee yet who may be winning. As we have quite some different classes I will just mention the leaders in each one. In cart, Category A is leaded by Karl Rachbauer (AUT), B by Maros Litvaj (SVK), B" by Bernd Sauerhöfer (GER), C1 by Larissa Wiener (AUT) Junior, C2 by Frank Schölles (GER), D1 by Zoltanne Varga (HUN) and D2 by Theo Kentzinger (FRA) Junior.

Many participants also in two wheeler classes and today the leaders are : in B1-2 Men Igor Stefan (SVK), B1-2 women Linea Kamper Pedersen (DEN) Junior, B2-2 Raphael Perrin (FRA), B1-1 Men Patrik Lucansky (SVK), B1-1 Women Lisa Klaushofer (AUT), B2-1 Jean-Michel Hoog (FRA), S1-2 M Alexey Tarazanov (RUS), S1-2 W Kitti Köffer (HUN),S2-2 M Pavel Otbetkin (RUS), S1-1 M Stefan Finzel (GER), S1-1 W Stefanie Wunsch (GER), S2-2 M Sepp Brugger (AUT), S2-1W Priscilla Neureiter (POR).

Very beautifull races also in Canicross wher the leaders are in CC2dogsMen Sebastian Astelbauer (AUT), CC2W Zsuzsanna Gyurovics (HUN), CC1M Michal Ivanco (SVK), CC1W Edina Koris (HUN), CC1MJunior, Theo Kentzinger, CC1WJunior Virag Kiss-Toth (HUN), and for the young 11-14 years old, Tamara Ivancova (SVK).

FISTC Cart EC - 2016, Ottenschlag, Austria


Here is the home page for the EC Cart 2016. There will be news on the HP during the next weeks


FISTC Championships in Italy - 2017


As that was already said during the General Assembly, there might have been the possibility to modify the dates and location of our FISTC Sprint and MD/LT Championships 2017 as the originally planned dates in January were not suitable for many countries like The Netherlands who have St Ullrich or the Czech Republic with Destne and others.

Now we succeeded in changing the location with the full support of our Italian friends. So the next FISTC Championships will take place in Italy, the location is MILLEGROBBE (TN) not far from the Austrian border.

The Championships sprint will take place from 9 to 12 February 2017 and the Championsips MD/LT on the same location the week after from 16 to 19 February 2017.

More details will come soon. However we already can give you some information that you may find on the following websites:

http://www.malgamillegrobbe.it/it/home

 
A new entirely dedicated site will soon be made available as well as an info center and reservation center.
More information to come soon. There are hotels and accomodations quite close to the race area. However, for mushers who will be participating in the distance championships, it may be good to infomr the organisers quite quickly as during that second week-end it will be Carnival and hotel reservations should be done quite early.
Enjoy a nice summer.

One year Vaccine against rabies have an expiration of the validity for one year, for example 23.6.2016 till 23.6.2017.
 
Three years vaccine will be accepted if the veterinary signs this correct (signature, stamp and sticker)  in the EU pet pass that means: date of vaccination, expiration of the validity;  for example 23.6.2016 till 23.6.2019.
