Due to the cancellation of the Manvel event, if you paid an entry for Manvel you can apply it to the Alexandria race. Alex will have a few separate classes that will require separate entries but they won't apply to all classes. The Ski Hill race on Saturday will run all standard one day USXC classes. If you’re not coming to Alex you can request a refund by email.

GPS Locator App

usxclogonewswebGPS Locator App

This information comes from the Sheriff's Department:
We wanted to share with you a website that could be very useful for locating people that are lost or broke down and could be a huge benefit to racers. The website can be accessed by any smartphone & we tell our dispatchers to have the 911 caller go to the site to get their exact GPS location so we know where to send our responders.

If you go to the site, bookmark it, & hit the next format button – you can see the GPS format change & give the person a map of where they are. If/when an accident occurs, our dispatchers will ask them if they know their GPS location & we will know right where they are at. We prefer to use the ‘decimal degrees’ format.

This would be helpful just in case an emergency occurs or even if they break down in the middle of nowhere.

USXC Racing encourages ALL RACERS to go to this website and download the app to your cell phones.
Thank you,
Brian Nelson

Park Rapids Race Info

usxclogonewswebPark Rapids Race Info

The Park Rapids race will start at 9:00 AM. The Park Rapids Chamber will be charging a gate as in the past. 100% of the gate plus extra sponsor money they receive all goes back to the purse. The race will be done early so they are encouraging racers and crews to bring along trail sleds and go for a ride. They will be giving you a wrist tag when you enter that will qualify for discounts at a number of local businesses, mostly restaurants, etc.

Manvel Race Postponed

usxclogonewswebManvel Race Postponed

The Manvel event, scheduled for January 5, has been postponed until further notice. The wind blew most of the snow away, with too much bare ground showing now; we will not run in unsafe conditions. USXC will try and fit that event in later in the season depending on conditions.
Thank you,
Brian Nelson
