While in Germany races have to be cancelled because of low interest, in Hamar the startlist for pre IFSS World Championship Race is impressive: Hamar Startlist 2011
Among the king's discipline, OPEN SPRINT, also two German mushers are testing trail and team performance:
Participants Open Sprint 22,5 km:
Kjetil Hillestad, Hamar
Maria Lindkvist, Sverige
Ulrich Brand, Hamar
Arne Haugen, Lillehammer
Tom Helstrand, Hamar
Michael Tetzner, Tyskland
Tom Brandtner-Bungic, Tyskland
... hope both Germans will cross the finish line - twice!
Another experienced German open sprint musher will start in mid distance. This could be a good training (in German "Überdistanz"-Training) for the IFSS Sprint World Championship. But you never know ...

(Narvik, Norway) will compete next weekend in Hamar too - of course!
