Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Nice pictures Mark! Nice area, and it seems to be some very nice lines to ski there!

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Wow! Serious stuff!! Did not see any photos of you ripping a few tele turns, obviously the Photographer has not heart!!! Is there much difficult climbing in the Ski Tour race? Glad to hear the tele kit all worked well, especially with the F1s. Mine are the Race model (not carbon cuff) with no tongu...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Short race report, had a fantastic weather during the Keb Classic event with windless blue sky. Unfortunately my teammate got sick the morning of the first race day, so I had a very stressful morning before I found another team that I could join (teams could be either 2 or 3 persons). We started in ...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

79D7F09A-1CC5-4D2A-99EB-090725CD4019.jpeg Arrived today at the Kebnekaise mountain station/hut for a two-day teamrace around the highest peaks in Sweden. The weather forecast is fantastic for the race days, so I am really looking forward to the race. Will probably race one day with locked heel and ...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Great work on the binding Mark! Regarding creating races where telemark gear can be competetive with AT, the advantage tele gear has over AT gear is rolling terrain and perhaps shorter flat sections with skating. The disadvantage tele gear has is either on the downhill or on the uphill depending on ...

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Mark, don't worry. I will not give up teleskimo, the locked heel is just temporary to get experience for the next season. Have not decided yet on the set-ups for next year, but it is possible that I go back to 3-pins and T4s on my Atomic race skis for sprint races and these short lap races in piste....

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

IMG_5347.JPG Yesterday I participated in my first race with full Rando gear, since I have mounted rando racing binding on my Atomic race skis instead of simple 3-pins. This was also a 2 hour lap race in the middle of city, this time in Sundsvall at the Swedish northeastern coast. Each lap was 147 m...

Re: What alpine skis are people using for telemark?

Some ultralight touring and racing skis will be difficult to mount a telemark binding safely on, but apart from that any alpine ski will work. And I do agree that it might be a good idea to get a new binding also, after 10 years things start to break, and spares for those bindings I think are scarce...

Re: Trailhead Time Saver Idea (you heard it here first)

I always drive with my T4s, been doing it for almost 20 years, never any problem - not even with small tight pedaled italian cars. Never tested with my backpack on, might test that.

Re: Telemark Skimo racing (was: 3-pin Racing)

Back from my second session with the AT race rig, I did laps in the nearby small, rather low-angled, red piste where I usually test gear and make some quick laps. The odd thing is that I am slower with the AT gear than I am with 3-pins/T4s. I did an avarage of 6 minutes and 54 seconds per lap this n...
