Eric's Recommendations for Upcoming Races

Marquette, MI
Date of Event:
Feb 22, 2019 to Feb 24, 2019
Wax Recommendation:
Options #1 and #2 noted below
Wax Ratio:
See below
Humidity Level:
Additional Information:

It's back up to da cold & snowy UP for the USSA Central Division U14 & U16 Qualifier races. Make sure that you have cleanly pulled sidewall/2nd edge and that they are sharp and burr-free. There will be a lot of static charge in the new fallen snow, so the call will be for the "black" waxes such as Swix Marathon or HWK Alpine Pro cold as both have a wide temperature range. The humidity level will be optimal for overlays. I am suggesting to first crayon Raceservice ECGU-3, polish with a felt pad and then apply your overlay.

GS Option #1 = HWK Alpine Pro Cold mixed 1:1 with Extreme Cold Powder

GS Option #2 = SWIX Marathon black mixed 1:1 with CH3 Powder

SL Option #1 = HWK LFW2 Nero mixed 1:1 with Extreme Cold Powder

SL Option #2 = SWIX LF5 mixed 1:1 with CH3 Powder

Overlay(s) = Crayon Raceservice ECGU-3 and polish with felt pad, then apply either HWK Mid Spray or SWIX HVC Cold

As always, when you are done racing make sure to clean your bases with Swix glide wax cleaner and apply Raceservice SBC-1 as a conditoner for the ski.

Good Luck & Have Fun & enjoy the pasties!
