CXC SuperTour - Masters Cup

Fri, Nov  4, 2005 - By Scott Wilson

Central Cross Country Skiing (CXC) is pleased to announce the CXC Masters Cup. A fun new age handicap point system race series for all area master level CXC members.

The idea behind the system is to get as many citizens involved in CXC FIS SuperTour cross country ski races. These shorter high-speed events are the best way to develop faster times for the big ones in February and March. It will give master racers an opportunity to compete for an overall age adjusted title for the first half of the ski season.

Series races include the 4 consecutive weekends of SuperTour events in Central.

Jan. 14-15 Madison, WI 5km Criterium F
1km Sprint C
Jan. 21-22 Mt. Itasca, MN 5/10km C
10/15km F
Jan. 28-29 Telemark, WI 5/10km C
10/15km F-mass start
Feb. 4-5 Minneapolis, MN 30/30km F mass start

The top female and male master skiers of the race series will receive an equipment package from Rossignol that will include top of the line fitted skis, bindings, poles and boots; a $1500 value. More importantly, master level racers will now have something, in addition to the Birkie, to give them regional bragging rights for the year.

Specific points and scoring details are available on

No special registration. No additional costs. None of those confusing age group results. Just one four week series. One overall champion.
