Updated and Final 2019-20 World Cup Criterion

Dear Cross Country Ski Racing Community,

We’ve just posted an updated and final version of the World Cup Selection Criterion for 2019-20, which captures recent calendar changes in the SuperTour and World Cup schedules, and it can be found here:

https://usskiandsnowboard.org/sites/default/files/files-resources/files/2019/2019-20%20Cross%20Country%20World%20Cup%20Criteria%206-25-19.pdf

This criterion was created by a working group that included 8 senior club coaches, the Chair of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Cross Country Sport Committee, 2 non-active U.S. Ski & Snowboard Athlete Representatives, and 4 of the U.S. Ski Team coaches, including myself. The criterion was then reviewed and approved by the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Cross Country Sport Committee.

Here are some of the main ways in which this year’s selection criterion differs from past criteria:

• We have a special selection for the Sprint Tour in Quebec City and Minneapolis. Our quota for this Tour will be 15 men and 15 women.
• We have a special selection for the World Cup Finals in Canmore. Our quota for this event will also be 15 men and 15 women.

We are excited for these extensive racing opportunities in North America and relish the opportunity for so many USA athletes to start in these events. We feel this criterion will do a great job of selecting the right athletes to represent the USA in World Cup competition.

If you are an athlete or a coach that is impacted by these criterion, and you have any questions or concerns about it, please feel free to contact me directly. My contact info is below.

Sincerely,

Chris Grover
