Sponsors for telemark skimo racing ?

Postby Ant01ne » Fri Mar 31, 2017 10:19 am

Hi folks! Got a taste of skimo racing this winter.
I found it super fun and challenging, but I've been a bit disappointed by the absence of telemark among the ultralight Dynafit DNA carbon skimo race stuff.

I think It would be super awesome to see some light tele gear in these races.

Let's show the world that "telemark will never die"! I'd be glad to race in the name of telemark, instead of going for Dynafit sponsors ;-) ..Plus the Crazy Idea "Hugo Suit" would be a crazy good fit for the retro tele spirit!

Keywords: Meidjo , Pierre & Pierre tele carbon boot prototype , carbon planks , skimoeast

First try at Le Massif de Charlevoix, I got good last with T2, O1 and Rev90. Strava told me 20.2km with 1498M vertical in 3:33 at avs of 5.7km/h

Mont Sainte-Anne last saturday, got 25 out of 33 overall, 22.3km, 1342M vert, in **3:08 avs 7.1km/h, with Dynafit TLT6 boots and Seven Summits skis. **the official clock said 3:27. One skin clip broke so I had to fix it with a voile strap, and I took the time to change clothing prior to the final high speed descend :-D

That's what I'm talkin about, uphill-downhill races specific to the Nordic crowd, including all types of Nordic gear.
