In its inaugural year, the Loppet Foundation is fully regrooming the Theodore Wirth Park terrain park and sprint courses to host LoppetX in the spirit of Red Bull’s NordiX Series.

The LoppetX course features significant vertical drop, significant features, and significant hills. For racers it is a thing to experience, and for spectators a thing to behold.

There are two race categories for competitiors to choose from: intermediate and open. In the intermediate category racers will experience the fun of cross racing at a moderate intensity. In the open category racers will push their limits, and spectators will enjoy the show.

LoppetX racers in the open category are chasing their portion of the $5000 LoppetX Purse, with $500 a piece going to the top male and female finishers in both the XC Ski and Fat Tire events.

The total field will be limited to 96 LoppetX riders on Saturday and 96 LoppetX skiers on Sunday. Race format is similar to standard individual sprint races, with qualifier heats of four to six competitors followed by finals heats with a similar field.

Racers and spectators alike are encouraged to enjoy Parallel 45 Stage, which will take place concurrently with and into the evening after LoppetX.
