The United States Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA) SuperTour finals and distance national championships are the premier cross country ski races in the US, held annually in the spring so that the top American skiers can return from the FIS World Cups to compete with 200+ of our nation’s best domestic cross county skiers. The SuperTour is a season-long series of races that take place across America. The leaders of the SuperTour earn FIS World Cup start rights. The SuperTour finals are a mini-tour of four races that cap off the 2012-2013 SuperTour series. The times from all four races are combined, with sprint and climbing preems similar to stage racing in cycling, to determine the yellow bib (over all winner), the green bib (best sprinter), white bib (best jr, U19), and the polka-dot bib (best climber.) Following the SuperTour finals are the US National Championship 30/50km races.
