We’re thrilled to once again be partnering with Mansfield Nordic Club to host the FreeFall Rollerski race on September 18th! The race will be held at the rollerski track of the Ethan Allen Biathlon Range in Jericho, VT and is part of our 2022 NENSA Series. This will be the fourth time NENSA has hosted an open competition in Jericho, with a Fall Classic in 2017 and 2018, and last year’s freestyle competition. Events at Jericho tend to bring large fields with junior, collegiate, pro, and master skiers all taking a liking to the amazing closed track on the Ethan Allen Biathlon Range. The 2021 FreeFall saw 118 skiers on the start list!
This will be the third event of the 2022 Series following the Lost Nation Roll held at Craftsbury in early July, and the Rollins Roll held in Warner, New Hampshire in August. NENSA is hosting a total of seven rollerski races this season.
The terrain at Jericho consists of a series of fast rolling loops to make up a 5k course for U16s and a 15k course for U18s and up — making for an exciting event both for spectators and racers! The top-15 seeded men and women entered in the race will be able to use skis from our matched fleet of Swenor Rollerskis. The names of those skiers will be highlighted on the start list.
NEW FOR 2022 — We’ve added a three-lap 6km course for Masters and Recreational skiers that has no fast downhills! We hope to see some new competitors and continued masters growth in the Rollerski Series!
A big thank you to our NENSA associate sponsors – Salomon, LL Bean, Swix, and Fischer – for their dedicated and ongoing support of NENSA. We are also grateful to Enjoy Winter and Swenor Rollerskis for supplying use with an awesome fleet of rollerskis and Cabot Cheese for providing #theworldsbestcheddar for our Open, Junior, and Masters podiums!
