Kokanee NewUnion NordicX Is Ready to Rock!!

With fresh snow on the ground the Kokanee NewUnion NordicX is ready to become the first major Nordic X race in North America. The course design team has put together a race course that will test the technical ability of cross country skiers in a new and exciting format. Racers blast off from the BMX start gates and hurtle down a course filled with mega berms, launch pad jumps, and a short killer uphill. A prize purse $2000.00 has been confirmed for Senior Men and Women categories. Donít forget the post race party featuring 7 bands including Finger 11 and the after party hosted by Tequila Nightclub.
