*Italy is in division two but, as the host country, will be entitled to three start slots in both classes.

The rest of the countries will have one guaranteed starting slot for both middle and long distance race. The countries closest to division two are New Zealand, China, Bulgaria, Belgium, and Japan in women’s class and Belgium, Slovakia, Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand in men’s class.

The new model means that all countries are guaranteed at least one start slot in both middle and long distance finals. In addition, all nations are allowed to have three runners in the sprint qualification race and one team in the sprint relay and in the “traditional” relay.
