Thursday, September 20th, the entire team will be meeting at the Apple Bowl for our Critical Speed testing at 5pm. The First test will start at 5:20 so if you are a little late we will be warming up. We would like all athletes 13 and older to complete at least one of these test sessions per season. This is an opportunity to improve your results and to compare yourself to others in the country plus current and past Telemark skiing Heros!

The Evening will look like this: 5:00 Warmup, 5:20 Test 1, 5:35 Testing and Metrics Discussion, 6:00 NST Strength Test 2, 6: 35 Prep for next test, 6:50 Test3 and done by 7pm.

Test 1, 5:20, 13 and older will run the 3000 m. 12 and under will run the 1000 m.

Test 2, 6:00, is the NST Strength test. 2 people will start this test every 2 minutes and they will do 1 minute of an activity with 1 minute break between. The order of the test is Pull-ups, Sit-ups, Push-ups, Box Jumps and Dips. You will have a partner who helps you count your repetitions. When you have completed the test you will count for your partner’s test.

Test 3, 6:50, the 13 and older will run the 1000 m. 12 an under will run the 400 m possibly in two heats depending on numbers.

Despite how difficult this sounds everyone has a really good time doing the testing.

Roller Ski Wheel Group Order

Hello Ski Fans,

I have had requests to put together a group order for Roller Ski Wheels. Look at your wheels. Are they worn funny? (on 1 side); nearly impossible to ski properly on. Are the bearings loud or looses? Is the Rubber low? Yes? Time for new wheels

By ordering in a group we save on shipping costs. If we have enough sets of wheels to order we may be able to get a further team discount. We order wheels directly from Rollerskishop.com as they are the best price for complete wheels with new bearings. These wheels fit all skate skis that we have ever ordered through the team; Swenor, F1, and One way. Everyone on our team uses speed 2 wheels. Normally works out to $120 for a set with shipping, tax and duty when ordered in a group.

Here is a Link! https://www.rollerskishop.com/copy-of-4-built-100×24-mm-roller-ski-wheels/

Looks like they also sell those are to find Roller Ski Tips too…

Email me ASAP if interested. Thanks,

Adam Elliot
