Mike Elliott, Executive Director for Rocky Mountain Nordic sent an email to RMN Coaches and RMN Skiers that for RMN Junior National Qualifying races, RMN usually bans the expensive pure Fluoro waxes. However there are exceptions when RMN skiers compete directly against skiers, like college skiers, for USSA points and those skiers can use the expensive pure Fluoro waxes. That is the case in the DU Invitational and RMN JNQ race January 19 & 20, 2013 in Minturn at Maloit Park.
On Saturday January 19, 2013, Female RMN OJ/J1/J2 and Male OJ/J1 skiers are eligible to use Pure Fluoro waxes. Pure Fluoro waxes are banned for all other RMN skiers. On Sunday January 20, 2013, Female and Male RMN OJ/J1 skiers are eligible to use pure Fuoro waxes. Pure Fluoro waxes are banned for all other RMN Skiers.
The pure Fluoro waxes are the waxes that cost at retail $120 – $195 and can wax four to eight pair of skis. Everyone is approved to use the Highly Fluoronated (HF) waxes.
