Under the city lights on capitol square in downtown Madison Wisconsin, the SuperTour team sprint competitors put on quite a display of fast skiing for the hundreds and hundreds of spectators that lined parts of the course 4 deep. Good music and some exciting, spot-on commentary was amplified through speakers all the way down the two most crowded streets near the start / finish corner.

All in all it was a very exciting evening of competition and the large spectator crowds contributed a lot to the festive, fun-filled atmosphere. Tomorrow the Capitol Square Sprints continue with individual classic sprints for juniors, high school racers, and those choosing to compete in the top-level SuperTour races.
