SuperTour Classic Sprints
Wednesday, February 19, 2020
The SuperTour is a great spectator event for all ages. Watch the best-of-the-best go head-to-head in fierce sprint competition!
Top U.S. cross-country ski athletes will join their Canadian counterparts at seven stops during the 2019-20 SuperTour, a series of International Ski Federation (FIS) sanctioned cross-country ski events across North America and a vital component of U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s development program. The program provides top-level racing at key cross-country centers and a proving ground for club athletes with aspirations of qualifying for the U.S. Ski Team, of competing on the FIS World Cup tour, or in the Olympics.
This season’s SuperTour features five stops in the U.S. and two in Canada, including: Canmore, Alberta; Sun Valley, ID; Houghton, MI; Craftsbury, VT; Minneapolis, MN; Cable, WI; and Vernon, British Columbia. The Birkie Week SuperTour stop is the final competition prior to the SuperTour finals in British Columbia in March. Learn more!
Registration closes Friday, February 14th.
Date: Wednesday, February 19, 2020
Location: American Birkebeiner Trailhead; Cable, WI (same location as the start of the American Birkebeiner)
