Following several attempts done by the ISMF’s Sport Department to replace the French leg in Courchevel cancelled at the beginning of October 2020, the ISMF is glad to announce that the event will be recovered in the location of Flaine, in Arâches-la-Frasse. Thanks to the efforts of the French member Fédération Française de la Montagne et de l’Escalade, two races will be organised, an Individual on Friday 5 and a Sprint on Saturday 6 February 2021.
The ISMF’s Vice-President Sport & Events Pierre Dupont affirms: “We hope that the confirmation of Flaine just some days before the start of the first World Cup event in Pontedilegno-Tonale (Italy) will herald a season full of spectacular events despite the uncertainties due to the COVID-19″.
Considering the unpredictable year the world has been living, the event will take place except for cases of force majeure not depending on the International Federation.
The competitions will start in Italy on December 19 and will be held in Switzerland, France, Andorra, Korea, Japan and will end in Russia (Kamchatka) on April 30.
