    Might not make as much of an impression as the previously mentioned options though.

    Now that we've seen the micro-hahnenkahm, I think a smart wax choice will be your ace in the hole. Slipperiest slider wins.

    I noticed the pole click too, .

    some guys have done well with WD40 ( on the skis )

    Won the 60+ rec class but I'm firmly convinced it was the wax not my skiing

    I was gona be a cheap fuck and buy something less spendy

    instead I sprang for a 80$ piece of Hi Fluro tribloc ( +10 to - 4 )

    I went faster than i have ever gone

    I feel like any time you're contemplating wrapping yourself in full body spandex you should probably contemplate whether you're taking the activity far too seriously.

    Unless, of course, it's for S&M

    Could not the same be said for engaging in an activity with a deployable remotely triggered blow up pillow which you carry on your back for the duration?

    Now that would sell well. People would pull the cord just to get their blow up doll to wrap her legs around them.

    And construct a fairing around your package for extra aero effect.

    Pam cooking spray also could be an option, depending on the temperatures.

    If it's cold on race day, break out that "old" can of ScotchGard! it contains perfluorooctane sulfonate. FluoroCarbons at pennies on the dollar!

    Is the goal here to have everyone wear something ridiculous? Because if so, gorilla suit.
    Otherwise, just work on proper tuck form.
    No longer stuck.

    That's not the way I read it --
    And If you see the pole click in the training run,
    I believe our Yeti IS looking for Speed
    ( superG skis coming and ceraF... )


    I do like the idea of a Glory Days YetiMan run...

    Who says you can’t be fast and ridiculous:

    Gentlemen, I submit that the suit appears to be this suit:

    What skis have you got ?

    I was using 223 fisher RC4's from the early 80's but they weren't really all that fast and they didnt turn worth a damn somebody told me cuz the bases were not sintered, so I just started using my Atomic Redster womens FIS GS ski which seemed fast enough and easier to turn

    There are a bunch of old racers here, the ski club gets lots of people skiing, a race can bring a hundred racers with their families to the town so I disagree with people who say racing is not important IMO it a good thing for the hill even if you don't race

    so lots of old guys in sausage suits, everyone starts the bench racing and smack talking the next day after the race and its a good fund raiser for the ski club

    I used to run GS on these in the early 2000s until the paradigm got curvier and turnier. They’re like a much stiffer damper K2 Four.

    TGR should be sending a film crew (aka Warren Miller Style) to film this ski race event.... Could be a small segment in next year's TGR film...

    The only good thing about those MRR's is that they color coordinate with that Spyder wrinkle-wrangler!
