First events of the season in Vysočina Arena cancelled

Due to lack of snow and current warm weather the first events of the season scheduled in Vysočina Arena were cancelled. Cross country skiing race and also the Czech Biathlon Cup, which both should take place at the end of the year had to be cancelled. Warm weather with occasional rain also prevented the production of artificial snow.

Two weeks ago, during three days of freezing weather we managed to produce a solid portion of artificial snow. But even that is slowly disappearing. "The small amount that is left, is not sufficient to cover the race track," said the director of competitions in Vysočina Arena Vlastimil Jakeš.

The weather should cool down below zero this Friday. "If the freezing weather forecast for the upcoming weekend fulfills, the biathlon season could start on the 3rd and 4th January, when is scheduled the second round of the Czech Biathlon Cup and also the Czech Junior Championships" said Jakeš.
