Birkie Fever


As I begin this email with under a week to go to the American Birkie Week Events the air is getting quite warm Out There. The Heat from the Birkie Fever is rising like the temps, As we look to the next week with warm temps & liquid moisture we would like to add some reflection on the Birkie & it’s events.

This is not the first run in for the Birkie with warm weather- over the 18 yrs I have been back we have had years with less snow and great races as well as a year with great snow and a race that wasn’t. Think about “WHY” you do the Birkie. There are a few folks on this email list that can say that they do it to have an opportunity to WIN the race. I will tell you that is only a hand full. The rest of us participate in the events of the American Birkie as a challenge to our self, to get Out There and prove that we can conquer a given distance on the snow. Unlike many other sports, Nordic Skiing is a very ever changing one. Weather, terrain, wax, fitness, and much more play apart in how the event or day on the trail can go. We have found though the Biggest component is Mental. As you prep for the next week and what Mother Nature will throw at us, take a deep breath, plan to enjoy what events unfold with friends, enjoy nature just “Be Out There”

We look forward to seeing you this next week. The shop will have coffee everyday from Bell Lap Coffee of Minnesota. http://www.belllapcoffee.com/

Other treats as well as AMAZING Fruit from our Friends at FRUITSHARE http://www.fruitshare.com/

Great deals of everything in the shop, conversation, Worldcup & Biathlon on the Tele and we plan to follow it up on Saturday Night in Rice Lake with some Post Birkie Fun at the White Stag! https://www.facebook.com/whitestagwi/

So remember for this Birkie no matter how Hot Mother Natures FEVER gets, Get Out There, enjoy.

The MADSHUS Propulsion is the ski that is changing the face of Distance Classic Marathons.

In the past decade the Double Poling technique in Classic has had a gigantic evolution in distance & sprint races around the world. So much to the point that MADSHUS has developed a Classic ski just for that technique. The Propulsion has an entirely different flex than other traditional classic skis.

HERE’S HOW While double poling, the skier’s weight is evenly divided between the two skis – both in the power and the gliding phases. This is different from skating or classic skiing. Focusing on this, the ski does not need to be engineered with a wax pocket camber or to hold the full body weight when skating. Instead we can design the ski with one thing in mind: gliding efficiency. Without having to worry about the dynamic movement of skating or the wax pocket of classic skiing, we engineered the Propulsion ski with even distribution of pressure points throughout the whole ski and a compliant but stiff camber profile which work together to provide more powerful accelerations, better glide and higher top speed.

This season we were the ONLY Brick & Mortar retailer to bring these skis to the US Market. We have been shipping them from Alaska to Quebec! We have a limited number of pairs left available along with the Madshus Super Nano Classic & Skate Boots!
