No Vikersund in 2013/14 season?

Why there isn't no venue at Vikersund in 2013/14 calendar? What happened?

i don't know , but perhaps they want to make the hill again bigger because of reconstruction of Planica.

After reading it in Norwegian (Czech translation didn't really help :)), I think it says that Planica and Vikersund will be taking turns on finishing the world cup. Before it always used to be Planica. I don't know why they can't just do both though, wish they did.

Well, it could be money. Or it could just be that they have to make more variety between seasons so that they can allow more hills to be represented overall (there are more hills in the world than than the number of competitions that fit into the calendar). I don't know about the politics: how much are different hills fighting for a place in the world cup?

Really sad decision, as the reconstructered Planica flying hill won't be ready in time for the WC 2013/14 - meaning, the season final will be on the large hill there. So, a world cup without the 3 biggest flying hills, what's next???

OMG, no HS 213 Oberstdorf! Damn FIS! Why they didn't cancel ******* Falun or Planica large hill instead of Vikersund and Oberstdorf?! Damn them!

Well I think we will see only one ski flying competition. Harrachov will be cancelled due to strong wind or lack of snow (as usually) :) Really sad bud it makes me little smile-very absurd :)

This is going to be the worst season in the last few years. I'm not going to enjoy this season, I hope the new Planica will be ready for 2k15

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Ski Flying World Championship held in Harrachov this season?
So we'll at least have that.

I share your concerns for the wind myself though, lol.
