ISU Junior World Cup Speed Skating
The ISU Junior World Cup Speed Skating is a series comprised of several international events. It is the second most important competition for juniors, after the ISU World Junior Speed Skating Championships.
The format is comparable to the ISU World Cup Speed Skating Series, but only junior skaters are allowed to enter.
The first edition was held in 2008/09 with competitions in five distances for both Men and Ladies. Although the 500m, 1000m, 1500m and Team Pursuit were participated by both genders, the Ladies had a 3000m race, while the Men had a combined 3000m and 5000m as a distance.
During the 2011/12 season Mass Start (12 laps for Men, 8 laps for Ladies) was added and in 2013/14 the Team Sprint event (3 laps) was held for the first time. The results for the Team Sprint and Team Pursuit events are combined in the final rankings. Since the 2014/15 season the Mass Start is held over 10 laps for both Men and Ladies.
In November 2011 the ISU Junior World Cup Speed Skating was used as part of the qualification process for the inaugural Innsbruck 2012 Youth Olympic Games.
