Koos grew up just down the road, and he’s very much at home here – living in Mazama and taking advantage of the opportunity to roller-ski, run, and ride in the area.br /br /Torin has also taken the time to get his big bag of race skis sorted out and tuned up for the coming season. We’ve spent a few sessions flex testing skis, sorting and grouping the skis, and finally we’ve selected grinds for all the race skis. The goal is to have a logical matrix of flexes and structures to handle race conditions, and to keep it pretty simple and streamlined.br /br /With over 30 pairs of racing skis, there are five grinds represented. With any flex grouping there are a few structure options. With any base prep, there are a few camber choices. It’s all logical, relatively simple, and organized.br /br /Whether you’ve got 4 pairs of skis (2 skate, 2 classic), or if you’ve got 40 pairs of skis, a simple and organized approach is best. Choose
