    WOMEN - INDIVIDUAL SPRINT (CLASSIC)
    Invitation by

    Saturday, March 14 from 10:40 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. Individual Sprint – Classic

    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.

    This is the first time a classic style sprint event has been held in Quebec City, and it is a much more technically demanding race for skiers. It’s a real challenge to handle classic skis at high speeds, and waxing them for conditions like these is an art in itself!

    Men - Individual Sprint (Freestyle)
    Invitation by

    Sunday, March 15 from 10:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Individual Sprint – Freestyle

    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.

    Passing and positioning on the course are some of the greatest challenges for the athletes in the individual freestyle sprint.  Because the skiers are using freestyle equipment and technique, they take up more space on the track. That makes for a tight margin of error (and a high risk of causing a crash) when passing or attempting technical manoeuvres!
