Wearing masks is mandatory. Everyone who watches the race and is close to the competitors must have negative PCR tests. The competition is held without an audience.

"It's really very difficult to have a big sporting event in these times. The pandemic put us in a different situation from the normal organization. The safety protocol has been underway since mid-July. It is very strict. We are constantly testing everyone who is involved in the competition. I hope this works. The weather is great, today we will enjoy a wonderful competition, "said the vice president of the Bulgarian Ski Federation Georgi Bobev.

Bulgarian ski star Albert Popov will also start in Bansko. He received the right to participate in the disciplines "Slalom" and "Giant Slalom". Bobev expressed hope that the day will be favorable for the Bulgarian participant as well.
