The Secret V1 Double Kick

The trails of the famed and storied Comenkollen were calling all skiers... Well, they would if they could... The trail was in great shape after a 1 1/2 inch snowfall. I skated since I need the conditioning work. I can tell the form is coming around. The uphills weren't too bad and the speed work didn't hurt too much. I worked on the secret V1 double kick technique that gets the speed way up. I think only a couple of skiers besides me know how to do it. Since I'm not skiing all that fast this season, I need all the extra speed I can get. One of the skiers is an old Norwegian. He only used the technique on the uphills. I adapted it to the flats. The other guy is younger than me but basically hung up skiing when his kids were born. He's an excellent bike mechanic though...
