Due to the outbreak and continuing spread of the situation with the coronavirus in Northern Italy, the majority of Italian Regional Authorities have taken the decision to cancel and postpone public including sports events.

However, this does not apply to the Aosta region, in which La Thuile is located where there are no recorded cases. Consequently the Italian Winter Sports Federation (FISI) and its La Thuile Local Organising Committee in agreement with FIS can confirm that the women’s Audi FIS World Cup races scheduled for 29th February- 1st March 2020 will go ahead as scheduled.

As a precaution in the interests of public health, the races this weekend will be staged with limited spectators.The Italian athletes and teams are under permanent control and supervision of the FISI medical staff in order to guarantee their welfare.
