Pokljuka is waiting for World’s best biathletes
Pokljuka, 4th November 2016 - Winter is almost here and with it BMW IBU World Cup Biathlon at Pokljuka. This year Pokljuka will host the world's best biathletes a week before usual, right after the opening in Östersund. The best athletes will visit courses and shooting range at Rudno polje from the 8th to 11th of December 2016. Thrilling competitions are on schedule this year. After the official training on Thursday, on Friday both men and women will compete in the sprints, Saturday is as usual reserved for both pursuits and on Sunday both relays.
The preparations for the 21st edition of the BMW IBU World Cup Biathlon have been very intensive. Now we are waiting for snowfall or sufficiently low temperatures, so we can start producing enough artificial snow to prepare the tracks.
So far there is not enough snow at Pokljuka, but daily tickets for competitions are already available. You can purchase them at the Eventim ticketing sistem at the webpage: http://www.eventim.si/si/vstopnice/bmw-ibu-svetovni-pokal-v-biatlonu-sportni-center-triglav-pokljuka-443013/event.html. Shuttle bus from Bled to Pokljuka and back is included in ticket price.
Welcome to Pokljuka!
