WC 2017 in Latvia/Denmark?

According to Kirovs Lipmans (Interview to Baltic Times) Latvia and Denmark had joined in a bid for the hockey WC 2017 in competition with France and Germany.
Apparently it will first be settled between Latvia and Denmark who will get the semifinals and finals if they get the WC. Lipmans think Latvia/Denmark has 70% chance (interesting what inside information he bases this on?)

It could probably go on record be the longest distance between two countries of a joint sport event since they almost always share a border.
