Less than six months left to the 66th 3Tre edition - scheduled this year on the unusual Wednesday, January 8th 2020 - and on Tuesday, 16th July the traditional FIS inspection took place in Madonna di Campiglio developing a complete technical briefing with the Organizing Committee directed by Lorenzo Conci. FIS was represented by Markus Waldner - Chief Race Director World Cup Men - and Emmanuel Couder - Race Director and Coordinator Men’s World Cup. The international delegation was also welcomed by Tullio Serafini, new President of Campiglio Dolomiti Tourism Board.
“We are facing a new experience this year, 3Tre will take place in January which is the month of the great slalom classic races - Markus Waldner said - and Campiglio has all what it takes to be one of them. Of course, there will be some challenges due to the timing just after Christmas but we are sure that the audience enthusiasm won’t change. In my opinion, 3Tre is a remarkable example for engaging true ski fans and this is not very common in other locations. As FIS, we want events with more enthusiasm and less alcohol”.
Just a few changes on Canalone Miramonti slope are in the pipeline - which FIS technicians have monitored with Adriano Alimonta, the skislope Coordinator. “We are only considering small adjustments both at the start and at the finish to make the race even more technical and emotional”, Emmanuel Couder said. This season, the race is confirmed with the traditional timing: first round at 5.45PM CET and second round at 8.45PM CET. The event’s headquarter will be moved to PalaCampiglio, whereas the media office will stay at Sala della Cultura. “It’s been a very smooth and positive meeting - Lorenzo Conci, President of 3Tre Organizing Committee , declared at the end of the inspection - in perfect harmony with our friends from FIS. This season's date is challenging but we will be able to rise further interest around the race, also through the 3TreOnTour promotional tour starting from mid-September and including some remarkable international locations”.
