Anyway these events were sponsored by Red Bull and given the name NordiX, they can be found on You Tube https://www.redbull.com/gb-en/events/red-bull-nordix and seem to have been held from about 2010 to 2016. After that nothing. So I wondered, did they disappear? Is there anything similar being held today?
Many people on this board seem to enjoy skiing downhill on cross-country skis, although perhaps not competitively. What do you think? Would such events aid the development of techniques and technologies? And, if we wanted competitive XCD what sort of formats would be best to develop the discipline?

I always thought there should be a western biathlon with skeet shooting. Seeing bits of clay flying overhead would be less static than counting with a spotting scope. I'd go to watch that.
