Lukas Hofer ends his season prematurely. The South Tyrolean Carabiniere, who has missed all the World Cup stages held so far, returning only for a couple of appearances in the recent World Championships in Oberhof, has decided in agreement with the technical staff and the FISI Medical Commission to stop here, in order to heal permanently from inflammation in his tibial tendons.

At the next scheduled event in Nove Mesto (Cze) from Thursday, March 2 to Sunday, March 5, there will thus be Didier Binaz, Elia Zeni, Tommaso Giacomel and Patrick Braunhofer in the men’s field and Hannah Auchentaller, Lisa Vittozzi, Dorothea Wierer, Samuela Comola and Rebecca Passler among the women. Sprints, pursuits and relays are scheduled.
