    AB Cup #3- Skate Sprint

    Weather: Low -5 High +3. Sunny w/ moderate wind

    Race format:

    Qualifier for everyone (15 sec interval start) then 3 rounds of ladder style heats of 6 racers.

    For the U14 and older, the AB Cup/CPL points will come from your qualifier result. Leave it all out there in your qualifier!  It is a quick course so every second will count in the end. Push the transitions, tuck low, and free skate hard.  Awards will come from the final place on the ladder after the 3 heats.

    Heats will combine all racers doing the same distance.

    Heats will start every minute (over 140 heats for the day!), so be sure you are early for the posted time of your heat and paying attention to the chief of start.  Heat brackets posted on the bottom of the AB Cup zone4 page HERE

    Keep your bib all day (Qualifier & Heats). Hand in your chip at the finish of your qualifier.

    9:00 – U16 and Older Males Qualifier
    9:25 – U16 and Older Females Qualifier
    9:45 – U14 Boys Qualifier
    9:56 – U14 Girls Qualifier
    10:05 – U12 Boys Qualifier
    10:12 – U12 Girls Qualifier
    10:45 – U10/U8 Boys and Girls skills course

    11:30-1:45 – U16 and Older male and female. ~45 min between each heat
    2:00-3:30 – U12/U14 boys and girls. ~30 min between each heat

    2:00 U16 and older
    3:45 U12/U14 (or end of day)

    With such a long break between your qualifier and heats, I recommend you head home (or to a friend’s house) to relax. As well, with the heats having such a large gap, do your best to conserve your energy. Hang out in the day lodge and get off your feet for a bit.

    Check in at the teamroom 1 hour before your start to collect your bib.  Race skis will be on the wall outside when they are ready.  We will not rewax between the qualifier and heats.

    Be sure to drop off your classic race skis in the teamroom at the end of the day before you go home.

    Racing is hard, but that challenge is what makes it fun by pushing yourself to your limit and onto the next level.  Enjoy the hurt, you can rest at the finish line.  -Matt
