The winner of the sprint world cup. Chicco in 2h00’46 ”4 beat Giandomenico Salvadori (Fiamme Gialle) and the Lombard Mirco Bertolina (Carabinieri).

Meanwhile in the Trentino station there is talk of next season after the departure of the competitive director Marco Selle. The president of Fisi, Flavio Roda, is probing availability but now there is talk of a return after 14 years of Marco Albarello, the Aosta Valley coach who led the cross-country ski run in the Torine 2006 Olympic cycle. Next week will be decisive for the announcement. There will certainly be a change: but which one? The center of gravity of the Aosta Valley – Pellegrino and De Fabiani are from Valle d’Aosta – could be strengthened, remember that the reference technicians of the two sectors are Stefano Saracco (men) and Renato Pasini (women). We will have to hurry to choose because launching the Olympic season is not easy and time is pressing: when the assets are changed, the whole fund system is restructured. We recall that before Selle, for a four-year Olympic period up to PyeongChang 2018, the leader was Sepp Chenetti, who was the male manager at the time of Albarello.
