The Maine Event
On Sunday morning October 24th NENSA will be hosting the third running of the first open Rollerski Cross Country Cross event in the world. This exciting summer version of Cross Country Cross (XCX) builds on aspects of both sprinting and agility. The event will take place at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine. As we return after a two year hiatus (Covid) we are looking forward to strong participation from college, club and high school skiers.
Results from 2109 event.
(Course Map) The course will be set on a 400 meter loop including multiple ramps (Bicycle(s), Speed Whoop and Step Down Jump) and other agility components including: Figure 8, one-legged balance, grass skiing and several turning features including slalom. Skiers should be prepared for a course under 2 minutes in length – with sections of open skiing including a finish straight. All skiers will participate in instruction and two qualifications and use their “Best 1 of 2” time to advance into the rounds. The top-16 Open and top-8 Junior skiers will advance to single elimination rounds – advancing by winning their “heat” (Final Heat numbers and structure will be published based on registation numbers with the goal of allowing for more “round” skiing). Head to Head competitors will start and finish on opposite sides of the event “oval.” Overall results will rank based on round advancement.
