Mon, Oct  8, 2007 - By USSA

CXC Skiing and the organizers of the SuperTour at Telemark Resort have worked had throughout the sumer and fall to make improvements to the Sprint competition scheduled for Jan. 23, 2008.  The result of that effort is that the race, while still organized as a part of the event at the Telemark Resort, will actually be held in Duluth, MN.

According to Race Director Scott Wilson, teams will still stay at Telemark and a charter bus will take the field of athletes and coaches from the Telemark Resort to Dulth on the morning of the competition.  This will be provided at no charge to the competitors.

A demanding 1.4km course has been developed in Duluth, with indoor waxing facillities, athlete lounge areas, and complete locker rooms adjacent to the stadium.  A god spectatr turnout is expcted, and a high school 100m race will be held at halftime.

The exact start time for the race is TBD, but the qualification is planned for the mid-afternoon, and the Finals will take place at night on the lighted course. An awards ceremony and athlete party will take place after the event, and the coach bus will return the entire field back to Telemark Resort by approximately 10:30pm.
