Nordic Combined Team Sprint
(Demonstration event)

 
At the 2007 IMC Committee meeting in Hinterzarten, Erkki Ahtiainen, Asst. Director for Nordic Combined events, suggested that we add a second Nordic Combined event, a team sprint relay. The Committee agreed, and at IMC 2008, the Sprint Relay was run as a demonstration event. It was a great success, with eleven teams lining up to compete: nine national teams and two mixed teams.
The rules called for four-man teams with one competitor from each decade of age. The 60+ athlete led off with a single lap around a one-km loop. He tagged the 50+ skier who ran two laps and then tagged the 40+ racer. That man, and the 30+ anchor-man ran three laps, for a total race distance of nine km.
Jumping points were taken from the 40 meter results for the older skiers and from the 50 meter for the younger ones, and consisted of each skier's better score from his two competitive jumps.
The table below is complicated. It gives the team name and the athlete names in one column, then jumping points, both individual and total, and the team's rank in jumping. The Gundersen handicap was established using 30 points per minute (2 seconds per point). The column headed "Start ... Tag ... Finish" lists each team's start time, then the times when the first three racers tagged their team-mates and finally, the last racer's finish time, which is the team's finish time.
The column headed "Leg ... Leg ... Total" lists the race time for each racer, and at the bottom, the total race time for the team (the total of the four above). Finally you see the Cross Country rank for each team and their time back -- how far they finished behind the winning team.
