During the first season of Free Heel Pyrenees, with the purpose to promote telemark in our country and introduce an innovative discipline of this modality, the I Open Telemark & Cross was born, the first Tele-Cross that takes place in the Pyrenees.
It consists of a free-heel skicross, a completely unknown discipline, the result of my motivation to do on telemark everything that is actually done on alpine skiing.
One more way to aproach this modality to everyone is doing it in a fun way.
With the collaboration of La Molina ski resort, the competition is carried out at the Bordercross circuit that the ski center has set aside for the SBX World Cup in Els Alabaus area.
The competition has a regulation that rule over its proper working order.
The race consists of:
– Warm-up runs for circuit recognition.
– Individual qualifying timed runs.
– Groups are made according to qualifying runs, and the next runs are made according to the number of participants by category: knockout runs, until the final run.
