Winter Tech Clinic & Adventure Presentation Schedule - '12 - '13 (All Welcome, Free To Attend)

Join us at Cyclova XC for our series of Winter Tech Clinics & Adventure Presentations!


We're REALLY looking forward to a snowy Winter - and we know that you are too!  It's with this excitement, that we're thrilled to announce our 2012 - '13 winter clinic schedule.  This season will feature 8 different clinic dates on a variety of topics, by a wide variety of presenters (will we have any other perfect attendance records this year?).

In addition to the very popular wax clinics with a different theme at each of these dates, we will kick off each evening with a 30 minute Adventure Presentation each evening at 6 (**except where another time is noted**).  We'll be mixing up our clinic topics this season - in addition to focusing on ski waxing, we'll also focus on other key topics like sports nutrition, winter cycling, and sports medicine. 

Complimentary quality beverages will be available at each event - last year, some regulars even started bringing snacks to share.  This all, along with a thoughtful focused tech clinic & discussion make for a very special evening.  We look forward to having you as our guest!

Following is our event schedule:

Thursday, November 15, 2012 @ 6PM:  Cyclova XC Co-Owner Frank Lundeen presents "18 Consecutive Months On Snow".  October of 2001 marked the first of Frank's 18 consecutive months of xc skiing on snow, as he chased snow around the globe - to Australia and back.  Frank's slideshow will feature many pictures ranging from travel to training to lifestyle to SuperTour & World Loppet racing shots. 

After Frank's presentation, Mike Lundeen of Toko leads a clinic for all levels of  skiers on glide waxing fundamentals. In this clinic, he will highlight the fundamentals of how to apply glide wax. It is more important to apply wax properly, than to buy the spendy stuff. Learn to make the most of the time & money you spend on glide waxing, by applying it properly. All are welcome and keep in mind that you will receive a 10% discount on any wax or tool purchase during this wax clinic!  10% off on any wax or tool purchase during this wax clinic!

Thursday, December 6, 2012 @ 6PM:  Cyclova XC Co-Owner Ben Jonjak presents his 2012 Inca Trail trip with Inca Runners.  Cyclova XC team members Kevin Rogers, Micah Bruns, and Doug Berg were with on this trip and may be present to help tell the tales.  This presentation will feature breathtaking images of high mountain hiking - in many cased through ancient ruins - all while hiking & running with Olympian XC skiers.  You don't want to miss presentation!

After Ben's presentation, Frank Lundeen presents the exciting world of high performance waxless classic skis.  This is our first clinic on the matter, and an area of Nordic ski technology developing more rapidly than nearly any other segment.  For good reason, many consider a waxless ski that performs as well as a waxable ski to the "holy grail of skiing" - are we there yet?  Find out at this clinic.

Thursday, January 3, 2013 @ 6PM:  Local author Phil Petersonand the Brothers Helluvit cross country skied from Ely, Minnesota via the Canadian Border route through the BWCA and on down the Pigeon River to Grand Portage, Minnesota on Lake Superior.  It was a seven-day, six-night, adventure with temps from 38 degrees above to 12 degrees below, and that changing weather created some misadventures as well.  The trek has never been repeated and it’s an exciting story to hear.  Phil will also display some of the gear used, which he says now hangs on chalet walls as artifacts.  Join us.  The Helluvits story had an overflow crowd last month at the SCF Library, so get here early!  Phil will also display other books he has written and you can check out his website on philpetersoncreates.com.
