New Year's Race Weather

If you are starting 2009 off right and will be up on the GMNC trails, expect another beautiful Colorado mountain day. Southwest winds will remain gusty that will likely cause some drifting snow in the open areas. I am not at work and hate to deviate from the NWS forecast, but a quick look at the latest model runs indicate that there will be little to no new snowfall for the race. Snow and air temperature will likely be in the 20s. I have found FastWax Blue non-flouro to work just fine in those conditions. Any non-fluoro cold to medium cold glide wax will likely work well for skating. As usual for waxing on the Grand Mesa, when in doubt go colder.
Happy New Year!
