Stage 1, Wednesday 11/7 • Majorsbacken, Malax
The terrain at Majorsbacken have been waiting for twelve years since last competitions. The hill is quite high and wide, about two km2. The west side are quite detailed. There are bare rock hills, cliffs, depressions and ridges. The formations are more clear on top of the hill. There are paths, one big power line and a lot of narrow rides to guide the younger ones. The forest at the side of the hill has been thinned out and leftover sticks has now decayed, making the visibility better than earlier. Welcome to Malax!
