Italian national team embarks on a training camp in Sweden and Norway

The Italian men’s and women’s national cross-country skiing teams gear up for an intensive training camp in Northern Europe. Under the guidance of head coach Markus Cramer, the Italian athletes started a rigorous program from Thursday, June 15, to Sunday, July 2, 2023.

Federico Pellegrino and Francesco De Fabiani were two of the nine athletes named for the Italian training camp in Scandinavia.

This super training camp is a valuable training opportunity, divided into two distinct blocks, and will see the Italian national team first in Torsby, Sweden, from June 15 to 25, followed by Trysil, Norway, until the end of the training camp, as detailed in an official press release by the Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI).

A lineup of nine athletes has been selected to represent Italy at the training camp. Leading the charge is the seasoned veteran Federico Pellegrino, accompanied by Francesco De Fabiani, Paolo Ventura, Davide Graz, Simone Mocellini, Simone Daprà, Elia Barp, Francesca Franchi, and Caterina Ganz. Together, they form a formidable team ready to take on the challenges.

A dedicated team of technical staff members will assist the athletes, including Tommaso Custodero, Francois Ronc Cella, and Claudio Consagra. Additionally, physiotherapist Christophe Savoye will be on hand to ensure the well-being and physical maintenance of the team.

In tandem with the training camp announcement, it is worth noting that the International Ski & Snowboard Federation (FIS) has recently approved the calendar for the upcoming 2023/24 cross-country skiing World Cup. 

The calendar features an exciting lineup of 38 races, encompassing various stages, including 13 sprints, 20 distance races, 4 team sprints and relays, and a mixed relay. During the Christmas holidays, five of these races will be hosted in Italy, with Dobbiaco hosting a sprint in free technique, a 10 km classic race, and a 25 km race in free technique, while Val di Fiemme will be the stage for a 15 km classic race and a 10 km free technique race, featuring the iconic ascent on Alpe del Cermis. These events will be part of the Tour De Ski, scheduled from December 30 to January 7.
