The wind conditions weren’t at Ruka Nordic’s favour on Friday. All events in HS142 hill had to be cancelled due to too strong headwind.

Ski jumping qualification has been rescheduled for Saturday morning. Nordic Combined’s PCR was cancelled, and with that, all athletes are qualified for competition on Saturday.  The wind conditions are expected to get better by Saturday.

– It was very unfortunate that the wind situation forced us to make some alterations to the program. Otherwise, the World Cup weekend has started very well. The official cross-country trainings were carried out in very good conditions and the side events have started well. There’s even more to see and do tomorrow and we are expecting an amazing Saturday, says Ruka Nordic Secretary General Seppo Linjakumpu.

Because of the cancellations on Friday, there has been a few changes in the program for Saturday.
