Every review starts with a few rides trying to get my head around the ski and making sure I have the right settings. As of today that is all done.
I have had 10 rides on the XT so I am roughly 1/3 done with the review. For the next 10 or so rides I get to just ski. This is when I try to just enjoy myself. Then the last few rides I have to focus on exactly how to describe the ski.
Tonight I was skiing PerfectPass so not exactly to tournament spec but good times and very straight boat path. I ran a bunch of 32s the first set and then a bunch of 35s the second. At the end of the second set I took a stab at 38. The only reason I missed the 38 was because I was so freaking shocked to be running it so easy. I could feel myself grinning. It was only my 3rd or 4th go at 38 this year and I was running it.
Maybe it was a fluke but I expect to see my PB more than once before this review is over. I do not think I have a tournament before the end of the review. Oooo this sucks. I really want 3 @ 39 in a scorebook.
