The IBU announced today that IBU World Cup 3 has been relocated from Le Grand Bornand, France to Hochfilzen, Austria.
The relocation was due to a lack of snow in Le Grand Bornand. This will be a huge disappointment to the many organizers and volunteers. Many people have been working on this event for likely two years, and hundreds of volunteers had no doubt taken time off that week to take part in the event.
Unfortunately the weather just simply didn’t cooperate. Hopefully Le Grand Bornand will get another chance in the near future to host a World Cup event.
Hochfilzen is the site of IBU World Cup 2 so there will be two events in a row there. The competition schedule for IBU World Cup 3 will remain the same.
