Parallel 45 CupRollerski Loppet

The inaugural Fastenal Parallel 45 Rollerski Loppet is an event which will certainly be one to remember! A criterium-style race on rollerskis is an opportunity that does not happen every day… now is your chance to take part or witness such an event!

As a special guest, Minnesota’s own Jessie Diggins will compete with an autograph session to follow!


Freestyle technique. Competitors ski laps for 8-15 minutes (depending on division). After the initial time elapses, a bell is rung as the leader crosses the lap line. Competitors then complete 2 or 3 more laps (depending on division). The first skier to complete those laps wins. Any skier who is lapped at any time is removed from the race. All racers are required to use the matched set rollerskis provided by the Loppet Foundation.
