For the second consecutive season, the Telemark World Cup circuit travels to the Gran Pallars Espot station, which has become the epicenter of this sport within the Spanish state. The station from Pallaresa has awarded the 2013 Telemark World Championships. Fans will be able to see the best riders in action in the free heel technique. In total, about seventy skiers from fourteen countries. In the men's category, the team to beat is the Lau Team, made up of brothers Chris, Sven and Philipe Lau, who lead the powerful French team, which in recent seasons has managed to unseat the Scandinavian powers.
Philippe, current leader of the absolute world cup, dominates the sprint specialty and defends the partial title from last season and this season he has won all five races held so far. After two tests, Sven, with a victory in the giant category, leads the partial classification of this category, but with the Swede Mattias Wagenius thirty points behind. The third specialty, the classic, presents the tightest classification, with the Norwegian Eirik Rykhus and the Swiss Bastien Dayer tied on 150 points. In the Spanish team, the maximum representative is the veteran skier from Madrid, Tomás Testillano, who in turn is the coach of the RFDEI team. This season, his best result is a sixteenth position obtained in the sprint test of the Austrian station of Rauris.
In the female category there is no color. Switzerland's Ameli Reymond continues to dominate the Telemark World Cup circuit at will. Last season he won the absolute title and the giant, sprint and classic titles. This season is unbeaten, after winning the nine races held to date. The skier from Sion has 37 World Cup victories and is on her way to breaking all records. The Granollers skier Raquel Bau will be the only Spanish representative. The Catalan arrives at Espot just to prepare, since she has recently become the mother of her first child. Bau returned to the competition on February 3 and 4 at the Swiss resort of Thyon, where he finished in eighteenth and nineteenth position.
