The best skaters will be there and will surely offer us a great show. This competition is really important as it is the first one of the olympic season. This year's World cups events are used to qualify skaters to the Olympics and the European championships. Adding to this, skaters will also battle for precious World cup points. You don't want to miss this event.

Everyone started this busy season a few weeks ago with national championships or open competitions. Some of the best international skaters such as Ted-Jan Bloemen, Mika Poutala and Sang Hwa-Lee competed at the Fall Classic in Calgary (you can read our recap HERE).

You can also browse the results and read our recaps of the American, Canadian, Dutch, Korean, German, Norwegian and Belarusian trials to know who are the skaters who shined.

With the different time zones, you get to watch a lot of speed skating this weekend! Don't miss it! It is a perfect way for you to prepare for the Olympics while long track and short track skaters battle to get in.
