Ski Classics Season XIV returns after the Christmas and New Year’s break with events 4 and 5, in another back-to-back Pro Tour events weekend, Pustertaler Ski Marathon and Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge, in Italy.
Pustertaler Ski Marathon– Ski Classics Season XIV
On Saturday, January 14, Season XIV ignites 2023 with the Pustertaler Ski Marathon, the season’s fourth event.
After a successful edition last season, the 62km long-distance race is again part of the Ski Classics Pro Tour. Self-titled the longest and hardest ski race in the Drei Zinnen Dolomites (Three Peaks in the Dolomites), Pustertaler Ski Marathon offers a very challenging course and breathtaking scenery.
Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge– Ski Classics Season XIV
On Sunday, January 15, the weekend continues with the fifth event in Season XIV, the Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge, voted the best event in Season XII.
Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge is a 30km uphill mass-start race, and last season proved to be a real climb competition. The mythical climb to Prato Piazza is the biggest climb of Season XIV, with the finish line almost 2000 meters above sea level, high up in the magnificent Dolomites scenery.
Expect thrilling battles on the tracks and some splendid drama as the Pro Tour skiers fight for glory in mid-January.
The upcoming Ski Classics Pro Tour event is Pustertaler Ski Marathon, a 62km classic technique event in Italy on January 14, followed by Prato Piazza Mountain Challenge, a 30km race also in Italy on January 15, 2023.
