Second event in Ruka also cancelled
False start into the season 2015/16. Also the second Individual Gundersen competition of the season opener weekend in Ruka, Finland, had to be cancelled. Since the early morning hours, the wind conditions did not permit any jumping.
Race Director Lasse Ottesen: „For the first time, we had to cancel both of our opening events here in Ruka. The wind conditions this weekend have been too strong and in the line of safety for our athletes, we have had no chance to complete any jumps since Friday. So the World Cup in Lillehammer, Norway, next weekend will be our opening event of the winter 2015/16 and we are very much looking forward to finally get underway."
