59 skiers will take part at the World Ski Cup in Bulgaria's Bansko. On February 27th and 28th, the ski resort will host two giant White Caravan slaloms. Among the favorites on the Marc Girardelli track below Todorka peak will be Switzerland's Marco Odermatt, France's Alexis Pinturault and Mathieu Faivre, Austria's Marco Schwartz and Norway's Fabian Wilkens Solheim. 

Bulgaria's Albert Popov will go down with number 59. 
"I will not lie that it is very heavy, the track is very tiring for the legs," Popov said after the introductory training. "However, the fact that I ride in Bulgaria motivates me even stronger. I think I know this track better than anyone else and I hope this will lead to good results, " the Bulgarian skier added.
