We have a variety of racing opportunities for the club - when there's snow in Madison we hold races on Tuesday Nights at Elver Park. There are other races in the area that we think you should know about as well - check the events calendar for details.

MADNORSKI RACE SERIES

We are very happy to welcome back The Bicycle Doctor of Dousman Wisconsin as the major sponsor of the 2014 Elver Race Series. They have a large selection of cross country skies and ski related gear. We hope you would visit them in Dousman or go to their web site at http://www.bikedr.com/.

Updates:

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Elver Series in 2014. It was a successful year as ALL SIX races were held as scheduled. Results can be found on the left side of this page.

We will be back with the Series in 2015. Registration for season skiers will start at the first club meeting in the fall. The series will be the same format, but the name will change. From now on it will be known as the MADNORSKI RACE SERIES.

I hope hope all you racers have a great summer. Train hard and often.



Race Description

The MadNorSki Elver Races Series will be held on Tuesday nights at at Madison's Elver Park. Races will be held on January 7, 14, 21, 28, February 4 & 11, in 2014. Race distances will be 5K and 10K (more or less) with both freestyle and classic technique races each night. Registration starts at 6:00 pm and ALL races start at 7:00 pm. There will be a one hour time limit on all races - you have one hour for both the 5k and 10k events. NOTE: a daily or annual ski permit is required at Elver Park for any skier age 16 and older! Permits may be purchased at the park shelter or online. Information regarding each race will be posted to the XC email list prior to the race including schedule changes and cancellations. You will also see information posted each week here (above), listed under Updates. All skiers are welcome. Results will be posted on left side of this page. A typical race course map is available here and Elver park trail distances are available here.

The "Series Competition"

The Elver Race Series will have overall champions declared at the end of the season. There will be an award for winners in 8 categories as follows:

10k Men's Freestyle
10k Men's Classic
10k Women's Freestyle
10k Women's Classic
5k Men's Freestyle5k Men's Classic
5k Women's Freestyle5k Women's Classic

To be eligible as a series competitor you must register for the race season series. Skier need not declare which category they are competing in and may compete in a different race length or style each week.  Each skier finishing a race will be ranked in there category according to their finish (separated by gender, but not by age classes). Firsts place will get one point, second place will get two points, third place will get three points and so on. You must have scores from three races in any given category to be eligible for an award. The skier's best three race finishes in a category will be used for point totals, and the others ignored. (Any one skier can only place in one category at the end of the season) The lowest score wins. If any races need to be canceled the race committee may adjust the number of races needed for point totals. 

TEAMS:

There will be team racing as part of the Elver Race Series. Teams can be any combination of males or females. A team may consist of 3-5 skiers. Only the top three skiers from a team will score points for the team on any given night. The racers on any one team DO NOT have to be in the same race (they do have to be skiing on the same night). Scoring for a team will happen in the same manner as individuals. Your finish place in your race (separated by gender, but not age) is your point value. A perfect team score for a night would be three, from 3 different first place race finishes. At the end of the season a team must have scores from all but one race. For example, if all six races are held a team's top 5 scores will be used. If only five races are held a total from 4 races will be used.  Skiers on teams are also eligible for individual awards.

There is no extra fee for registering a team, but all the skiers on a team must be entered as season skiers.
