FIS Roller Ski World Championships in Val di Fiemme
Matteo Tanel is going to defend the World Champion title won in 2019
Russians skiers Alexander Bolshunov and Natalia Nepryaeva will be competing

A special September is coming to Val di Fiemme. FIS Roller Ski World Championships are taking place from 16th to 19th September. The races in program are Interval Start, Sprint, Team Sprint and Alpe Cermis Final Climb divided between Ziano di Fiemme, Passo Lavazè and the wonderful and popular Alpe Cermis. Big stars of Roller Ski are trying to win a medal and the title of ‘World Champion’, celebrating the restart of this sport after the challenges of 2020, due to the pandemic. Now is time for the “horses of the road” to run and to demonstrate how sports events are always at their best in Val di Fiemme.
Matteo Tanel, world champion in 2019, is defending the title he won in Latvia. He knows it’s going to be a difficult challenge but he’s going to try his best. “The fact that we’re racing in a place that we Italians know so well is an incentive. We know the tracks by heart, I can’t wait to show the results our team can achieve!”. Italian Roller Ski team often trains in Val di Fiemme, particularly in the Cross-Country Stadium in Lago di Tesero, and in Passo Lavazé. The atmosphere is going to be ‘heated’ by the presence of public. “People in Val di Fiemme are fans of Cross Country Ski and of Roller Ski” says Tanel “they come out in the streets to cheer. Val di Fiemme is one of the best places for World Championships”.
Everyone is ready for the show, and two Russian Cross Country stars are going to compete as well: Alexander Bolshunov and Natalia Nepryaeva. About that, Matteo Tanel clearly knows that his rivals are going to try as hard as him, but racing ‘at home’ is a special motivation and he looks forward to the challenges that these World Championships are going to bring.
The hype is growing and there is always less time to wait for the Roller Ski world Championship. Matteo Tanel has one last thing to say to all Roller Ski fans around the world and in Val di Fiemme: “Come to the Roller Ski World Cup in Val di Fiemme: it’s going to be a great time!”
