ONTARIO LOPPET SERIES 2022/23
The Loppet Series is well underway! It is still not too late to join in! Your time will be adjusted according to
the age related handicapping tables and the fastest male and female skier will receive 100 points. Each skier
will receive points according to the percentage his/her age adjusted time is behind the fastest skier. If two
distances are offered, the shorter distance race time will be increased proportionate to the longer distance and
10% added before applying age handicap.
1. For the Loppet points, the best 5 age -adjusted races are counted for each skier from all of the races
2. A skier must include at least 2 races from the Ontario Masters Championships at Hardwood
3. A skier must be a member of the Ontario Masters Cross Country Ski Association at the time of the event to
have his/her points tabulated for the event. An exception will be made for a skier who has never been a
previous member of the association.
Attached is the revised list of events and the results to Feb 1,2023.

JAKROO ONE-PIECE SUIT
We have another Jakroo piece that members may want to consider. It is a one-piece racing suit. These suits are
made of a really nice material, and fit well. They have been well received by a club that has ordered their
custom design. This link below will show you the design which has been added to our clothing. The request to
add this design and new material came from some BC members who want to purchase the one piece race suit.
I have approved this new one piece race suit design to be added to our Jakroo store. We are hoping to
confirm 6 orders to get the team price.
The one piece suit design has been well received by our local Sovereign Lake Nordic club women and men
with our club design and colours. Hope you like the Canadian Masters one piece design with much improved
fit and materials.
