The compact World Cup - in front of Frauenkirche & Semper Opera
The robotron Ski Arena with start and finish area, athletes hotel, waxing area, media center - just a few hundred meters away. Perfect conditions for athletes, service staff and media. And for the thousands of spectators standing around the track, the great chance to be close to the action.
The races will take place on a 900 meters track at the banks of the river Elbe. The athletes will race the track twice during qualification and the finals - in front of the spectacular skyline of the capital of Saxony. The athletes will start at the Königsufer and skiing down the river, crossing the Augustus Bridge. The turning point of the lap is located in front of the famous Canaletto View. On the way back the athletes have to manage a short uphill and a fast downhill - arriving the finish line, in front of the excited crowd at the robotron Ski Arena.
Guideline for the detour of the Elbe Cycle Path
A large part of the race track of the FIS Cross Country World Cup Dresden will use a 400m part of the Elbe Cycle Path. Together with the Dresden office of the German Cycling Club and the muncipality of Dresden we´ve been looking for a smooth and safe detour of the Elbe Cycle Path during the Worldcup. Details about the detour will be published in good time prior to the Worldcup.
