A new website has been launched for the Cable 2015 Nordic Skiing World Championships ©IPC/Cable 2015A new website and trailer have been launched for the 2015 International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Nordic Skiing World Championships in the United States.

The Wisconsin town of Cable will play host to the Championships, with around 150 athletes from 20 countries expected to take to the snow.

Athlete profiles and competition information are included as part of the new website, while the trailer puts the spotlight on the Telemark Resort, the venue for the Championships.

It sits along the nearly one million acre Chequamegon National Forest and boasts more than 300 kilometres of groomed cross-country ski trails.

"The World Championships will gather multiple world and Paralympic champions in a top-quality, internationally recognised venue," said Dimitrije Lazarovski, head of IPC snow sports.

"The new website is filled with the latest information about the competition and we hope to continue working with the organisers to stage the best Championships ever.

"Not only will it provide athletes with a platform to demonstrate their incredible endurance and skill, but we also hope it will be a festival of sport that can be enjoyed by fans and the media as well."

It is the third time the Championships will come to the United States, and they are set to play host to the likes of Russia's five-time biathlon and cross-country gold medallist Roman Petushkov, who will be on the hunt for his third world title.

The IPC Nordic Skiing World Championships are due to take place from January 22 to February 1 2015.
