FIS Change Their Tune on the Ski Duathlon... Again

Estonia’s Tiit Pekk has been elected Chairman of the FIS Sub-Committee for Continental and World Cup Races for cross-country.

Estonia has produced several great racers of late: Veerpalu won the 30k for men in Lahti and the Smigun sisters are strong in the women’s class. Kristina came close to winning the women’s overall world cup in 2000, although she did struggle in 2001.

As it looks today (this may change), the FIS policy on equipment changes in ski duathlon has changed (again).

Racers will not be forced to change boots after the classic part as previously decided by FIS.

Another option is to allow for a certain time in the pit, 90 seconds has been suggested by some racers and coaches.
