Here is a World Cup and Marathon World Cup update from TorbjornSport and SOLDA Speed Makers as well as a link to SOLDA wax suggestions for the Pepsi Challenge and the Great Nordeen race this weekend.
If you didn’t already know:
The top three men and the top two women in last year’s American Birkie raced on SOLDA glide wax. Why pay more when you can have the fastest for less?
SOLDA wax suggestions for this weekend’s Pepsi Challenge at Giant's Ridge, Minnesota and The Great Nordeen in Bend, Oregon are now up online at www.torbjornsport.com
