Briefs for Dec. 15


Nordic Challenge Series begins at 6 p.m. today

The Nordic Challenge Series begins tonight with the Howelsen Hill Relays.

Registration begins at 5 p.m., and races start at 6 p.m.

The race will use a relay format with each team consisting of two skiers. Teams will be selected at random with the Nordic Council race committee pulling names from a hat to form teams. An effort will be made to have mixed teams of male competitive skiers teamed with female competitive skiers, juniors and recreational skiers.

There will be two courses. One is a longer, more challenging loop for competitive skiers, and the second is a shorter, easier loop for recreational and junior skiers. Competitors can use any technique, but there will not be separate classic and skate-skiing divisions.

There are six races in the Nordic Challenge Series, which stretches from December through March.
