Question about drafting in skate ski racing. At the speeds used in the sprint relay, I could see drafting being some advantage. But perhaps skis and skiing keeps a skier from following closely enough to get any actual draft effect. Added to this the shape of a standing human is not very conducive to drafting anyway, whatever the speed.
Drafting is everything in cycle racing (everything besides EPO anyway), but cyclists laid out over a top tube form a lozenge shape more conducive to drafting than a standing cyclist, and they can ride closer to each other than skiers can be too.
This is the World Famous TelemarkTalk / TelemarkTips Forum, by far the most dynamic telemark and backcountry skiing discussion board on the world wide web. We have fun here, come on in and be a part of it.
