    Invitation by Québecor

    Friday, March 17 Sprint (free technique)

    Qualification – 11:45 AM-12:55PM
    Finals – 2:15PM-3:55PM

    The Individual Sprint starts with a time trial in the qualification round. Skiers start every 15 seconds, with the 30 fastest qualifying for the quarterfinals, where they face off in heats of six. The first two finishers in each heat move on automatically to the semifinals, along with the two skiers with the next fastest times (lucky losers). The semis follow the same process, with the grand final featuring the six fastest skiers in a showdown for the stage win. There will be bonus seconds for the top 30 in the Sprint race. The bonus seconds are subtracted from the competitor’s actual race time before being added into the overall time score.

    Saturday, March 18 Mass start (classic)

    10km – Ladies – 10:40AM-11:15AM
    15km – Men – 1:00PM-1:50PM

    Ski racing’s most simple and straightforward format. All skiers start together. An exciting, tactical race (similar to road cycling) with the first skier to cross the finish line taking victory. During the competition there will be one bonus sprint for ladies and two bonus sprints for men. The first 10 athletes at the bonus sprint point will get 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 seconds which will be subtracted from the competitor’s actual race time before being added into the overall time score.

    Sunday, march 19 Pursuit (free technique)

    10km – Ladies – 11:20AM-11:55AM
    15 km – Men – 12:45PM-1:35PM

    The thrill of the chase. The pursuit event is an exhilarating race format that sees the Tour’s overall leader start first, only to be chased by the skiers behind him or her in the general classification. Skiers start one-by-one at intervals determined by their current time deficit in the overall standings. The job of the leader is to fend off the chasing skiers and hold on for the win. First skier across the line wins the race, but skiers can also compete for “fastest time of the day” prizing as well.
