The second running of this exciting race format – in 2019 racers were able to post top speeds in a speed trap!  Competitors will race two separate distances: 3.0km and 1.5km.  The 3.0km represents a prologue distance (& JN relay distance) and the 1.5km a sprint qualification – there are no rounds.  Each race will be scored to the NRL and included in New England Junior National rankings.  Skiers will be seeded by U.S. Ski & Snowboard Overall points for both races.

83% Classic Pole Rule:  Classic poles have to be no more then 83% of your height, wearing your ski boots. Pole height is measured from the tip of your pole to the top of your pole strap.  There will not be a measuring station at the start – it is each athlete’s responsibility their poles correct length.  TD’s have the right to measure and questionable length poles at the finish.
