These sprint races, formaly titled "Greg's Chelsea Nordiq Sprints a Madshus Regional Sprint Series", are back for 2004. They have moved off the Dunderossa golf course and up to the trails around Chalet des Erables at Camp Fortune. For those who didn't participate last season these sprints start with an informal seeding into grouping skiers into groups of 4 per mass start. There will be 3 rounds in total, for the evening and each racer will have an opportunity to race in each round. After each round, all skiers will move forward with the fastest finishers racing the top finishers in the other flights of the same division. At the end of the 3 rounds new seeding for the next sprint race has been determined.
