I posted this, on this topic, in a tele group on Facebook:

"Not really interested in watching it but if it leads to further development in stepin and releasable bindings I'm totally down with it."

And a guy who does a tele race at West Mountain every year replied, sortof asking NYSB to cover the event. I guess I folded like a cheap suit, saying I would do it.

Every year?  When?

OK maybe I got that wrong or made that up. I googled it and it looked like they had one last year, and he seemed to be referencing next year. Maybe those two years are every year.

EDIT: Looks like it never happened:

Kind of interesting to see that smaller mountains hosted the Telemark races in the northeast in 2018.

I know a guy who is very active in the Tele race scene and knows all the players & all the ins and outs of northeast Tele Racing.

Not sure he would write an article for you, though. You'd have to edit it like crazy anyway.
