The 2006–07 Tour de Ski was the first Tour to take place, from 31 December 2006 until 7 January 2007. It was won by German Tobias Angerer for men, while Finn Virpi Kuitunen won the first women's Tour.

Modelled on the Tour de France of cycling.[1] The first edition of the tour was held in Germany and Italy, with six races spread out over eight days, including two separate days of rest.[2] The prize money for the event amounted to 750,000 Swiss francs,[3] shared out on both men and women. Men's and women's events were held together on the same days.

Ranking[edit]

The overall results are based on the aggregate time for all events, as well as bonus seconds awarded on sprint and mass start stages.

The two sprint races carry bonus seconds for the finish, which are subtracted from the overall time, as follows:

Finishing position 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30
Seconds deducted 50 40 30 28 26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1

In mass start competitions, intermediate points carry bonus seconds; 15 to the winner, 10 to number two, and 5 to number three. The same amount of seconds are awarded at the finish. In the 30 km race there are two intermediate points, in the 15 km race one intermediate point.
