Tyson Flaharty, an elite Cross Country ski racer and Toko service team member, waxed Arleigh's sled. Tyson waxed the runners each day with Tribloc LF Black, Tribloc HF Blue and finished with JetStream Blue in all 3 races. Tyson also used a Blue structurite on the runners. Tyson remarked, "it was warmer out (mid 20s), but we wanted to err on the cold side for durability and to try to keep things cleaner since the race started and finished on dirty trucked-in snow for several miles"
After winning the championship, Arleigh commented that the runners were the fastest that he had ever had. Congratulations to Arleigh, Tyson, and the dog team!
