AMH Anchorage Cup Series Hickock Skiathlon, Kincaid Park, Anchorage, AK

5k CL/5k SK, or 3k CL/3k SK mass start.

Forecast/conditions: Saturday night mostly cloudy, lows 15-25F. Saturday highs . Sunday mostly cloudy, a chance of snow. Temps mid 20s to 30s. Snow should still be cold from very low temps over the preceding week. Cold snow combined with warming air conditions could make the RH at the tracks higher than anticipated, so higher fluors could make a real difference.

Glidewax: Apply LF10 or MF10 Green, and scrape will still warm. Brush and apply HF8 Blue, scraping while still warm. Brush with metal and stiff nylon brushes.

Topcoat: Rub on HF11 block, and iron through a sheet of fiberlene. Handcork after cooling. It is also possible that HF3 liquid Roto corked together with the HF11 block could yield excellent results.

Gripwax: Clean and sand gripzone. Apply a thin layer of Base Wax with torch or iron. Apply Oslo Racing Blue Extra (cool Oslo waxes previously for ease of application). Cover with FHF60.

Alternate Grip: Base Wax, thin layer. Apply 2 layers Synthetic Blue, then 2 layers of Synthetic Purple (1…-3C) Cover with Tar Blue for better glide.
