SKIBOB WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS - Invitation and call for entries

Dear Skibob friends, dear athletes! It is no surprise, that Austria hosts the 40th Skibob World cup. With its countless world champions and 16 hosted World cups, Austria is he number one Skibob nation. Despite the fact that Nassfeld, Carinthia’s largest ski region, has never hosted a Skibob world cup before, it has a lot of experience in hosting and organizing Skibob races.

I myself attended two world cup finals and could experience their professional execution and remarkable hospitality first hand. I am confident, that the township together with the tourism office, mountain railways, Hotels and the Ski club will be very enthusiastic when it comes to this World cup.

At the Nassfeld world cup, Skibob racers of many Nations will struggle for the first place and I am sure that Nassfeld, which is more than 2000 meters above sea level, provides the best possible conditions for the competitions. I want to thank the many people needed for the organization of a sports event like this needs the engagement of many people whom I want to thank. Especially the president of the Austrian Skibob association Roland Fritsch, the Austrian team’s trainer Bernd Zobel and the tirelessly working Maria Frages. In the name of the FISB I accept the invitation to Nassfeld and I am looking forward to harmonic days together and great skibob races.

Marc Frapporti FISB Präsident

The Skibob World championship 2019 will be held under the motto „55 years of Austrian Skibob Association”. As president of the Austrian Skibob Association I welcome all participants, attendants and officials at the Skibob world championship 2019 at Nassfeld. The Skibob world championship gives us the opportunity to thank those responsible in the communities of Hermagor and Tröpolach, the ski club Tröpolach and the lift operators and hotels of Nassfeld for their cooperation. Nassfeld has become an important part for skibob as a sport as well as the Austrian racing calendar.

We can only confirm Nassfeld’s Slogan “Urlaub bei Freunden” which translates to “Holiday with friends” It is without exaggeration when we say that sports events at Nassfeld are organized with friends. The past has led us to expect best conditions in Carinthia. I want to thank all organizers and supporters, especially national trainer Bernd Zobel, who is in large parts responsible for this unique partnership and who established Skibob as a sport in this beautiful ski region. I wish all participants competitions without any accidents and beautiful days for the skibob sport.

Ing. Roland Fritsch ÖSBV President

Skibob World Championship: An honour and an accolade Being the venue of the Skibob World Championship in the Carnic region end of March 2019, is a special honour and accolade for the sports state Carinthia. Skibob as alpine sport has a long tradition and is becoming increasingly popular in Austria. As governor and head of the sports division, I am especially delighted that the International Skibob Association has chosen the Nassfeld ski resort, which is famous far beyond the state borders, in the Hermagor District as venue for the Skibob World Championship.

This international sports event, organised by the ÖSBV in cooperation with the SV Tröpolach, is an asset for the region and provides new impulses for the national skibob sport. Every sports world championship contributes to intercultural exchange and builds bridges. Sport in particular plays an important role in our lives today. It has become a platform for integration and communication and, as mediating entity between the individual and society, contributes significantly to the preservation of the social network in our country. Sporty activities promote team spirit, tolerance as well as solidarity and in particular the sense of community.

I very much appreciate the work done already by the organisation team of the Skibob World Championship. I hope that their dedication is rewarded with exciting world championship races and great interest by the spectators. With sporty greetings, Dr Peter Kaiser, Governor and Head of the Sports Division

Sporty activities like tobogganing, cross-country skiing, ski touring and snowshoe hiking tours can also be enjoyed here.

Skibob sport has a long tradition and I would like to congratulate the Austrian Skibob Association on its 55th anniversary.

A special tribute must be paid to the dedication of the officials and the staff. I am convinced that this event, in cooperation with the Austrian Skibob Association, the Hermagor-Pressegger See Borough, the tourist board, the SV Tröpolach as well as the Nassfeld mountain railways, will be a great success and will be remembered well by all involved. I very much appreciate the excellent work.

Dear Winter Sports Fans, As manager of Sports Coordination Carinthia, I am pleased that the SV Tröpolach and the Austrian Skibob Association (ÖSBV) have been successful in bringing the Skibob World Championship in the classes general, students, youth and senior from 21 to 24 March 2019 to Carinthia. The hosting of this event has been awarded to our federal state for the second time since 1996.

With this, the sports state of Carinthia gains yet another event and sports activity. Our federal state has already proven in the past that Carinthia is a good base for major sports events – from world cup races to football internationals and many others.

Thanks to the Skibob World Championship, spectators and anyone interested get the chance to follow exciting giant slalom, slalom and Super G races on single- track devices at the Nassfeld Söllehang slope. But there is more to this event. Aim of the promotional effect is to get young people interested in pursuing this attractive sport. Working with young talents is at the heart of my role as land sports director. I therefore would like to thank the SV Tröpolach in cooperation with the ÖBSV for hosting the Skibob World Championship at Nassfeld. May there be many exciting and accident-free races.

With sporty greetings, Arno Arthofer Sports Coordination Carinthia “Kärnten Sport“ Association
