A big thank you to Chris Li, the Wax Team, and the time trial volunteers last night for doing such a great job with the time trial! Everything went smoothly, including lots of klister applications! Time trial results here.

Thurs. Feb. 14: Scandinavia practice. Norway, Sweden: classic, leave wax on from last night. When you get on site, smooth it out and if you have bare spots put on some more on top of what you have (but not too much). Most skiers won’t need to apply additional wax, just smooth out from last night. Finland: skate unless you hear otherwise from your coaches.

Sat. Feb. 16 – Sat Feb 23: No formal club practice – school break week. Some countries might hold informal practices (at LJM or elsewhere), information will be communicated by your country head coach.

Wed Feb 27: Relay tag practice followed by pre-festival team meeting. For skiers attending the BK Festival. Demonstration of hand-to-body relay tag.

Thurs. Feb. 28: No practice – get ready for the BK Festival! Glide waxing support for the Festival will be available at the wax tent during normal practice hours Thursday, details TBA.

Sat. March 2 and Sunday March 3: Bill Koch Festival, Rikert Ski Center, Ripton VT (Middlebury). Online Registration deadline: Friday, Feb 22, 2019 at 5:00 PM ET.
