The Swiss superstar books his bib to the 43rd Marcialonga
The Olympic and World Champion joins the Italian ski-marathon for the first time
Over 50k of the traditional 70k track already prepared
Worldloppet, FIS Worldloppet Cup and Visma Ski Classics series in Italy next 31 January


We can only get satisfaction out of seeing and...hearing this. Over 50k already whitened (mainly with artificial snow) and the whole 70k distance confirmed, all the way from the town of Moena to the finish line in Cavalese. The Marcialonga President Angelo Corradini and General Director Gloria Trettel proudly announced that the traditional track will be ready in time, despite the poor snowfalls so far, and Italy's most famous winter ski-marathon will be at its best for the 43rd time in history next 31 January.
A great sport event for great athletes, this is what Marcialonga is and among the XC skiing superstars who will gather in Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa on January 31 there will also be Dario Cologna. The Olympic and World champion from Switzerland will join the event for the first time in career and, almost needless to say, the battle against all the opponents will be spectacular. Cologna was the first Swiss ever to win an overall World Cup title (2008-2009), he grabbed three Olympic golds, one in Vancouver and two in Sochi, he won the Tour de Ski three times and seized one gold and one silver medal at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2013 in Val di Fiemme. 'This is a fantastic news for us and for the whole cross country skiing movement – Corradini said and added – I'm sure Cologna and the thousands of skiers heading to Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa next Sunday 31 January will enjoy themselves a lot.'
The 43rd Marcialonga is part of the Worldloppet, FIS Worldloppet Cup and Visma Ski Classics series.
