CXC NEW VIP Member option:
Well the first evening of the CXC Masters program was held last night. All I can say is it is well worth the investment in your future and the future of Nordic. Still plenty of time to enroll!
Well we have made huge progress in the NEW training space. Hopefully within 3 weeks we will be completed and equipment in! Stay tuned!
Help us help these two men travel, train, and race this season!! Both Matt and Tad work hard to raise support for their careers! Being a professional Nordic ski racer is not easy any where, but especially in the US. Support for their expenses and lives must be raised by them! Lots of individuals, clubs, and non profits help athletes like Matt and Tad and so can you. Attending this camp will accomplish two significant goals! You will learn something that you can take home to benefit the enjoyment of your individual sport and you will join the team and community that helps support Matt and Tad in their careers and goals. We provide the opportunity to help, you provide the encouragement and the financial support!
