Trofeo del Contrade – Nordic Ski Race


Thinking it is too early to wax up those cross country skis? Think again. The Trofeo del Contrade (Districts Trophy) Livigno, Italy has been stockpiling snow and will cover the streets of the alpine town to host a night-time nordic race. Oh and feel free to leave the aerodynamic suits and carbon boots behind, the race features traditional nordic costumes and equipment too. This is the 36th edition of the race that brings visitors from around the world to the Valtellina village to watch the race through its streets and provide a preview of the upcoming season.
