Stride-doublepoling felt good yesterday!

Postby JeffOYB » Mon Feb 08, 2016 10:37 am

I was skiing laps of a twisty hilly groomed trail yesterday that was quite soft and a bit slow. ...It was too slow for kick-doublepole yet not steep enough for striding. So I was doing my patented Stride Doublepoling and just FLYING!!! 'Course I was by myself. But it felt great! Now, striding has faster tempo, but I didn't feel bogged down doing my thing. And it was quicker. In a race I woulda been nailing all striders near me. Really, I think it was a fun trail that would've had people saying WHAT THE HELL? to see this move. If you don't know, it's like V1 on kickwax skis, skis parallel.

A coach was out instructing a student and did holler "Are you classicking?" She didn't seem to comprehend my "yes" so she added "With kickwax?"
