Actually I wanted to go to the Nordic Combined COC next weekend, but it was cancelled. They are not able to prepare the hill and the cross country track because of the weather. Like everywhere in Europe it’s too warm for January and the lack of snow is a real problem. It’s really difficult to prepare hills or tracks and that’s why lots of other competitions had to be cancelled, too. Most of all the COC or Fis Cup races. The World Cup races take place as planned, but it looks really strange – a cross country track in the middle of a green landscape. I saw it with my own eyes last year in January and December when I was in Schonach for the Nordic Combined World Cup. This weekend we had NC comps in Chaux Neuve. I watched it on TV and it looked more like a comp in spring. Next week it should start getting colder and I hope it will. The temperatures at the moment are not normal and I hope that a real winter is still coming. I miss the atmosphere of a winter wonderland. :)
