TCBC Members,

I’m writing to you on behalf of the Loppet Foundation as an ambassador for the Fastenal Parallel 45 events next March 14-17, 2020. I have volunteered to reach out to the bicycle community.

Many of you may or may not be aware that the FIS World Cup returns to the USA for the first time since 2001 and the event will be held right here in the Twin Cities at Wirth Park. The finest Nordic skiers in the world will be competing in freestyle sprints over a course that is less than 2 km in length and is very spectator friendly. The racing will feature multiple heats of “knock out” head to head freestyle (skate) sprinting leading up to the finals deciding the podium places. The overall World Cup women’s and men’s season sprint champions will also be given special awards at the conclusion of these races. There are three levels of tickets which are described below.
