There are five races in the 2018 NENSA Rollerski Race Series. Athletes (senior only) will be ranked by their best 3 of 5 placements, with both male and female competitors vying for a Series cash purse provided by Marty and Kathy Hall ($500 – 1st, $300 – 2nd, $200 – 3rd). Juniors will receive recognition and prizes.
Series ranking will be determined by the sum of placements, where points equal the result. The tie-breaking mechanism is as follows: Best single finish, second best single finish, third best single finish.
*Lake Placid Doubleday – the sum of placements from the two events will determine the overall day ranking.
The top skiers from pre-registration (lowest US Ski & Snowboard / FIS points) will race on NENSA’s matched sets of Swenor Rollerskis. Depending on race formats skis will be provided to the top-ten or top-twenty skiers of each gender. Skiers will receive the skis no sooner than twenty minutes before start.
Marty Hall College Cup
The Marty Hall College Cup will be awarded to the college team that accumulates the most points over the course of the series. Each race, the top 3 racers (by place, regardless of sex) for each team will be awarded World Cup points from the college results. For example, if a team has places 2,4,7 (80,X, X) in the men’s race and 2,3,9 (80,60, X) in the women’s race, that team would receive 220 points for the race. Similar to the overall series rankings, ties will be broken by best race result as a team, and the Lake Placid double will count as one race. Standings will be updated after each race.
