The first heat started at 9:30 am, Friday the 17th. Thanks to the organizers everything was well prepared. We can say that we have been lucky with the weather. Since morning a beautiful sun shine follows all competitors on the trail. The race had to take a break at noon because of the high temperature and animal welfeare supervisor together with FISTC veterinary advised to delay the race for three hours sothat the temperature became lower and the conditions got better. After the break the race continued on a perfect trail witch was prepared by the local snow specialists. In each category of the race the competion is very strong as in many categorie there are only a few seconds between the first teams. According to weather conditions, the second heat that will start tomorrow morning at 9:00 is very promising.
