Pros meet amateurs in the centre of Galtür and compete against each other during an action-packed night sprint.
The first hurdle is the 500-metre long qualifying round, which every participant must accomplish in an individual race. The respective 16 fastest women and men continue in the exciting K.O. race, which is staged in two laps through the village centre, totalling 1,000 metres. The finalists start in groups of four – the two fastest cross-country skiers of each group will stay in the competition.
