Junior European Championships - Switzerland

While the seniors are competing for the final standings in the World Cup in the extreme terrains in France, most of European promising young juniors are competing at JEC (Junior European Cup) in Switzerland. There is definitely a good competition with a lot of countries present, with Sweden being one of the absent countries. After JWOC this competition probably is for a lot of the juniors the 2nd most important race of the year, although it is pretty late in the season.
The programme for the weekend is: Long Distance on Friday, Sprint race on Saturday in the city of Spiez and the team Relay on Sunday.

Today the long distance was held, results are as follows:

H20 (7,8 km/390 m/19 Posten)
