Nordic Skiing Photos
Photos of Nordic Skiing competitions make up a regular part of epa’s sports picture service. Nordic Skiing is usually a combination of several winter sports such as Cross Country Skiing, Ski Jumping, Nordic Combined, and Biathlon. As epa distinguishes most of the aforementioned sports in their own categories, we recognize Nordic Skiing mainly as Cross Country Skiing. The main styles used in Cross Country Skiing are Classic and Freestyle Skiing, which are both also combined in the Skiathlon event. To gain more attention, XC Skiing races are being held in several audience-friendly formats such as Mass Start, Sprint, Relay and Pursuit in which athletes compete during the FIS World Cup series including the challenging Tour de Ski, the Olympic Winter Games and the Nordic Ski World Championships.
