December 28, 2011 (Toronto, ON) – Due to popular demand the final registration deadline for the SkiTrax FIS Fantasy Tour de Ski 2011/12 Contest has been extended to 12pm Midnight on Dec. 28. This year’s TdS is the biggest, baddest Tour to date so we’ve extended the deadline to allow contestants a bit more time to make their final selections.
Keep up the good work, love your contests! – Sweden
Great fantasy contests – thanks SkiTrax! – Italy
Over 250 teams have entered and the Tour begins Dec. 29 in Oberhof, Germany so don’t miss your opportunity to be eligible to win over $3,500 in prizes and test your skills and knowledge against other contestants from around the world.
Remember: FIS XC has announced that Sweden’s Anders Soedergren and Calle Halfvarsson will not be racing at the Tour de Ski, and Norway’s Vibeke Skofterud and Martin Johnsrud Sundby are also out in addition to Alexey Poltoranin (KAZ) – but Charlotte Kalla (SWE) will be racing – pls check www.fiscrosscountry.com for any more updates.
