Ben Lustgarten races in the 2019 Tour de Ski

Skirack cross country ski fit expert, Jake Hollenbach will be doing a series of short Q&A's with Skirack sponsored athlete Ben Lustgarten while he races the Tour de Ski and 2019 World Cups. Enjoy Part 2!

QUESTION: What was your favorite town/race venue the Tour de Ski traveled through?
ANSWER: The first question is pretty hard! All of these towns are so cool and unique, with amazing views of mountains. There was not a ton of natural snow in some of the locations, mostly all on man made, small snow loops. Val Mustair in Switzerland was very cool. We stayed in a small town that had incredibly tiny streets and we drove through what looked like castles and ramparts to get there.

Small Town Mountains Opening Up for Bike Lift Access!

Only a few years ago, the idea that a small dual chair mountain would invest in lift access biking would seem foolish. Coupled with immense overhead, steep competition from larger resorts and what was still a very niche sport, the return on investment just wasn’t clear – and the risk for locally owned hills was potentially fatal.

But things have changed. With the explosive growth of Mountain Biking across the Green Mountain State and broader New England, small town mountains are seeing a more solid path to profitably supporting the logistics and overhead associated with digging and staffing trails.

Top 10 Products for Obstacle Course Racing (OCR)

Spartan Races, Tough Mudders and other adventure races fall into Obstacle Course Races or OCR. Races tend to be between 3-5 miles for the Sprints, 8-10 miles for the Supers & 13+ for Beasts & Ultra Beasts. You can do anywhere between 20-50 obstacles in a single race. Obstacles include 20’ rope climbs, monkey bars, jumping over walls 3-8’ tall, carrying sandbags, Atlas Stones or Wreck Bags up and down mountains. 

Competing in OCR requires endurance, power, strength, agility and speed. During a race, you will crawl, carry, climb, jump, hang, lift, pull, push, squat and run. OCR is basically Ninja Warrior but up a mountain with 3-13 miles of running.

The right gear matters quite a bit for training and competing in OCR; without a question, the most important piece of gear you’ll purchase for OCR is shoes. We have compiled a list of what we recommend for shoes and gear that can aid you in your race. Items are available at Skirack, but subject to availability.

Interested in starting or improving Obstacle Course Racing? Check out our OCR classes at The EDGE (information is below).

Raised to be a Fun-Hog

Jun 13, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Raised to be a Fun-Hog

Growing up as the youngest of three, all I wanted was to be able to do everything the big kids were doing. From learning to ski at age one and a half, to riding a bike without training wheels by age 3, to doing cartwheels on my rollerblades.

I’ve always had a daredevil sense of adventure. I have my dad to thank for that. My dad taught all three of us how to ski before sending us off to ski school with different instructors to gain a better understanding and perspective of the sport. However, I was promptly kicked out of ski lessons for not wanting to ski in a “pizza”, I would quickly respond by saying, “but I can ski parallel, here I’ll show you!”
