So finally part of the new rollerski-track in Holmenkolen has opened. As of now 2,5 km of the planned 5 km is open for training. It is parts of the winter-course close to the stadium area which is now being made ready for rollerskiing. At last athletes living in Oslo have a place to do quality sessions in a course relevant for competition-training and without having to worry about aggressive drivers. Unfortunately the rollerski-season is (hopefully) about to end, but this makes the training conditions for next season optimal with both skijumping and cross-country facilities within the city-borders.
