SPORTS / This new season of the Cross-Country World Cup starts this Friday as usual in Ruka, Finland
Richard Jouve ready to defend his title of best sprinter in the world. By entering the history of French cross-country skiing by winning the small globe of the specialty last season, the Briançonnais has before him the toughest of challenges: to confirm. A confirmation that begins this Friday during the traditional inaugural round of the World Cup in Ruka, Finland. Also wanting to prove that he is much more than a fast cross-country skier, the Haut-Alpin will align himself more and more with distance races and it starts this weekend with a 10 km this Saturday and a 20 km pursuit this Sunday.
