Blinkfestivalen 2021, here is the program: four cross-country skiing and three biathlon competitions
From 4 to 8 August Sandnes will host many big names in cross-country skiing and biathlon; the hope is that there will be fewer restrictions and athletes from countries outside of Norway may also be at the start.
The organizing committee has defined the program of the Blinkfestivalen 2021 , which as usual will take place in Sandnes, starting with the uphill race “Lysebotn Opp”. The program includes roller ski and summer biathlon competitions, with all the Norwegian big names as protagonists, but probably, restrictions permitting, the competitions will be open to some foreign athletes.
