Don Pendergrast and Cam Leonard classical skied the 30 km virtual Denali State Bank Sonot Kkaazoot yesterday in a time of 3:21:23.
Don writes: “Temperatures were 26-28 degrees, the tracks had just been set (Yippie), but the light snow made them slow. Wax was Start Tar 5 and worked well.
We kept up a steady pace throughout the course, but a careful examination of the pace data revealed something that I’d expected for some time; the data support that I ski faster down hill than I do up hill. I wonder if others have noticed this phenomenon? I believe further studies with more participants are needed to verify this observation.”
Congratulation, Don and Cam! I think Don has come up with a suitable topic for his second Ph.D. dissertation. Get to work on it.
