History:

Vikersund is a small village at Tyrifjorden 80 km north of Norway’s capitol Oslo. Since the foundation of Vikersund IF in 1894 until 1935 the ski club had been hosting its ski jumping competitions on six different ski jumping hills. In 1984 a committee was announced, whose target was to find a well located hill for a new ski jump near Vikersund. This new ski jumping hill, which was opened with a 86 meter jump of Reidar Andersen, was inaugurated in February 1936.
This ski jump of Vikersund has been enlarged twice since its early days, at first in 1956, after that in 1964/65 into a ski flying hill, after a long and hard fight for the status as Norway’s ski fling hill with Rena IL at Østerdalen. In March 1966 the new ski flying hill was inaugurated and Bjørn Wirkola’s new world record lighted through the whole skiing world in this year. Later on the flying hill was converted several times, but the wind conditions at Vikersundbakken always made many problems during flying competitions. The last conversion of the ski flying hill took place for ski flying world championships in 2000, when it was enlarged into a complete K185 profiled hill, on which one can jump up to 220 meters. Although Sven Hannawald fell at 214 meters in 2000, he became world champion. The potentials of Vikersund were demonstrated during the first COC ski flying in 2004, when Austria’s Roland Müller flew up on 219 meters. This new hill record was unique, but Roland Müller even announced that it would be possible jump even some meters longer.
Then in 2004/2005 a project of a new ski flying hill at Rødkleiva near Oslo was published and Vikersund had to have serious doubts about longer being Norway’s national ski flying facility and general ski flying location. But today this plans are temporarily put on hold and at World Cup Ski Flying 2007 Austria’s Martin Koch even landed on 220.5 m during training, but couldn’t stand it. > Conversion plans
The ski jumping facility of Vikersund doesn’t only consist of the ski flying hill HS 207, there is a big hill ski jump K105 (HS 117), too, which regularly hosts Continental Cup competitions of men and women, as well as pupils and training hills K65, K45, K25, K15, K10.
In April 2010 the conversion of the ski flying hill HS 207 into HS 225 started, by increasing the difference of height up to 135 m. The old inrun construction was blown up, the whole hill was slightly rotated and on a new natural inrun was shaped into the hill out of concrete and steel. Total investment cost was 80m Krones (about 10.2m Euros), half of which was covered by the state. By the way, the new jump was planned by Sebastian and Janez Gorišek from Slovenia, who are also responsible for Letalnica flying hill in Planica. In December 2010 construction works were finished and in February 2011 there was the test World Cup hosted on Vikersund K195 before Ski Flying World Championships in 2012. During this occasion Norway's Johan Remen Evensen flew on 246.5 meters and brought the World Record back to his home country after nearly 42 years.
For this main event another 5m Euro were invested into the ski flying hill over the year 2011. In order to fulfill FIS requirements take-off and landing hill had to be modified and the infrastructure was brought up to a modern level with a new ski lift that is also serving the K105 hill, a multifunctional building and especially the futuristic warm up room "Vingen" (en. "wing") on the top of the inrun.
In preparation of the Ski Flying World Cup in 2015 the hill profile was again slightly modified in the landing zone, such that Vikersundbakken had to be re-certified as a K200.

Korrektur

Vikersund liegt etwa 80 km westlich (nicht nördlich!) von Oslo
Der Ort hat etwa 6000 Einwohner und ist Zentrum der Kommune Modum mit ca 13000 Einwohnern.

@Eberhard Jurgalski

Hallo Eberhard,
ich schon wieder :D
Auch hier kann das Mysterium wohl leider nicht endgültig aufgeklärt werden. Es gibt zwar Ergebnisse von der Skiflug-WM 1977 (in der Enzyklopädie des Skispringens, 2004), jedoch werden die technischen Parameter der Schanze dort unerwähnt gelassen. Selbst auf den meist befülltesten Seiten mit Skisprungergebnislisten, wie ist nichts zu finden. Es wäre schade, wenn diese Lücke bestehen bleiben würde, aber scheinbar lässt sich das nicht aufklären. Außer beim Veranstalter nach diesen Infos zu fragen, bleibt wohl kein Lösungsweg mehr übrig.
Viele Grüße
Luis

K-Punkt 1966-1977

Hallo, ich habe eine Tabelle gemacht, die alle Rekorde mit den K-Punkten und Schanzengrössen vergleicht. Jedoch die Rekorde in meiner Kindheit kann ich nicht berechnen, da nirgends weder K noch HS für den Vikersundbakken von 1966 bis 1977 zu finden ist. Gibt es da Bücher mit dieser Information oder kann man es anders herausfinden (stundenlang gegoogelt, nichts zu finden...) Gruß aus Lörrach, Eberhard

Fehlkonstruktion

Ich muss ehrlich gestehen: ich halte Vikersund nach wie vor für eine Fehlkonstruktion. Das fängt schon damit an, dass die Springer vom Aufwärmraum aus gefühlt erst mal einen halben Kilometer nach unten laufen müssen, die Gates aber eigentlich viel zu weit oben am Anlauf angebracht wurden - Springer, die sooo viel Anlauf benötigen, werden wohl kaum auf dieser Anlage springen und zum Training wird sie ja auch nicht benutzt. Viel schlimmer aber ist die flache Flugkurve und die daraus resultierende, extrem starke Streuung. Selbst gute Springer landen ja z.T. auf dem Vorbau und Weitenunterschiede innerhalb eines Durchgangs von 70-80 m sind keine Seltenheit. Vikersund mag vielleicht die größte Schanze sein, aber die Wettkämpfe machen selten wirklich Spaß. Ich finde zwar, dass die Flugkurve in Planica etwas hoch ist, aber die Springen dort sind deutlich cooler, weil die Schanze halt viel weniger streut.
