 COLORADO CUP CROSS-COUNTRY SKI RACE SERIES ANNOUNCED

 A series of cumulatively scored nordic races set to go for 2005-2006 season

 Natron Nordic Enterprises, Skifire Inc., and a group of Colorado nordic ski areas have combined efforts to create a nine-race series of cumulatively scored cross-country skiing competitions.  The series will be scored similar to World Cup races, allowing skiers to accumulate points and compete for overall placing during an entire season of events.

 The series includes nine well-established races that have a history of being the best events in Colorado.  The Colorado Cup will join these successful events together using their established venues, distances, and techniques while providing a cumulative scoring system.  Racers will be given points based on their finishing position and ranked overall by gender as well as in 10-year age group categories.  At the end of the season the Colorado Cup will be awarded to overall senior and junior champions as well as age group winners.  Natron Nordic Enterprises has donated four 1-year training plans to be awarded as prizes for the overall and junior champions.

 The intent of the Colorado Cup is to provide a system that will support and develop junior skiers all the way through to master and elite skiers while also standardizing nordic events so that competitors and ski areas can get the most out of every race, all season long.

 More information, including the complete schedule, scoring system, event and series details as well as results can be found at www.natronnordic.com in the “Colorado Cup” section.  The results will be compiled and updated approximately one week after each event.  For additional information, contact Matt Muir at Skifire Inc., email Matt at matt@skifire.com, be sure to include “Colorado Cup” in the subject line.
