Vikersundbakken shall become even bigger

on 2011-06-07

In this summer further works on the ski flying hill at Vikersund in Norway have to be carried out. As a consequence even longer jumps shall be made possible.

The former HS 207 ski flying hill of Vikersund was enlarged into a HS 225 and world's largest hill in fall 2010. During World Cup competitions in March 2011 a new world record was set up as expected with 246.5 meters by Johan Remen Evensen. There was even a total of 139 flights on more than 200 meters.

But the events made also clear that there is still work left to do before the Ski Flying World's can be staged in February 2012. Since the best ski flyers had to start already from the lowest and additional starting gates during up wind conditions, 10 more gates need to be mounted. Also the position of the judges tower was objected to by the FIS and the hill profile scatters too much.

As the local newspaper "Drammens Tidene" now reports, the press officer of Vikersund ski flying organization Geir Holen confirmed that the adaptions to be made in the lower part of the landing hill and to the angle of the take-off, which are required by FIS due to safety reasons, will also make up to 5 meters longer jumps possible.

These soon to be carried out additional construction measures won't cause any further expenses and are already covered by the total budget of 86m crownes (11m Euro) which was just approved in mid May. This amount also includes the soil works and construction measures carried out in 2010, as well as further improvement to the infrastructure also to be made this summer. New functional buildings, space for 25,000 spectators, a cooling system for the inrun track, additional wind shelters and a new lift also reaching K105 will be build.

Rekord

Johan Remen Evensen morze stracić rekord na rzecz Gregora Schlierenzauer jeśli skocznia będzie powiększona jedynie , że nigdy nie będzie dobrych warunków pogodowych lub zawsze sędziowie będą ustawiać najniższą belkę.

Interia

Powodzenia, jeśli sugerujesz się informacjami z interii.

"co umożliwi letnie zawody o północy, w niezachodzącym wtedy słońcu."

A to jest już szczyt głupoty.

A poza tym igielit nie jest taki drogi, w porównaniu z kosztami budowy całej skoczni ;))

Igelit - Nie!

Jasne, że nie będzie igelitu. Przecież wyłożenie nim całego zeskoku wiązałoby się z tak ogromnymi kosztami, że nie byliby w stanie za to zapłacić. Poza tym, gdyby wyłożyli skocznię igelitem to byłaby możliwość skakania na niej przez cały rok, a przecież na mamutach nie wolno trenować poza zawodami, które i tak odbywają się bardzo rzadko.
