The first edition of the tour was held in Germany and Italy, with six races spread out over eight days, including two separate days of rest.[1] The prize money for the event amounted to 750,000 Swiss francs,[2] shared out on both men and women. Men's and women's events were held together on the same days.

OriginEdit

Cross-country skiing had been through a period of renewal from the early 1980s, when the free technique was first introduced to the World Championships which led to a rush of new events, including pursuit skiing, sprint skiing and eventually long mass start races, to complement the traditional time trial or individual start style of skiing. The Tour de Ski was modelled on the Tour de France of cycling[3] and the idea has been reported to come from a meeting between former Olympic gold medallist Vegard Ulvang and Jürg Capol, the International Ski Federation's (FIS) chief executive officer for cross-country competitions, in Ulvang's sauna in Maridalen, Norway.[4][5] Their idea was to create a stage competition consisting of different events which they expected would lead to several days of continuous excitement before the most complete skiers would become Tour de Ski champions.[4]

RankingEdit

The overall results were based on the aggregate time for all events, as well as bonus seconds awarded on sprint and mass start stages.

The two sprint races carried bonus seconds for the finish, which were subtracted from the overall time, as follows:

Finishing position 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
Seconds deducted 50 40 30 28 26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

In mass start competitions, intermediate points carried bonus seconds; 15 to the winner, 10 to number two, and 5 to number three. The same number of seconds were awarded at the finish. In the 30 km race there were two intermediate points, in the 15 km race one intermediate point.
