After all, brevic is a good-hearted guy who just had a difficult childhood - a reasonable excuse for the slap on the wrist he got... Anders Behring Breivik (now Fjotolf Hansen) is most likely "totally controlled by the Jews too" to use an expression by legendary chess master Bobby Fischer...

Re: Double Poling Question

I was wondering when it comes to double poling techniques, assuming that basic technique is good for sustained double poling, is it better to do long/strong arm extended double poling, or shorter quicker repeats. If you really want to go fast on today's equipment I believe you should use shorter bu...

It is no crime to produce a lip balm containing clostebol.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

Is there a solution to the decades of tiny pebbles destroying skiers? ...It would require a flared-bulge portion for the front fork to allow pebbles to pass up and thru. Possibly this would intrude on tilting the ski in skate training? Is that the problem? Many roller skis have very little space be...

Re: The danger of roller skiing

Another World Cup skier with medal chances at the Olympics, Didrik Tonseth (...) Going 50 kph downhill and a gravel road side road had spilled gravel onto the main which stopped Didrik's wheel. The same type of accident as Ralph's, but this time happening to a back wheel which is rarer since the li...

Re: Therese Johaug doped

Today it became official: Therese Johaug gets an 18 months suspension (18 October 2016 - 18 April 2018) for use of the forbidden substance clostebol which means she will not be allowed to compete in the Winter Olympics next year. At a press conference she said that her motivation to come back for th...

Yes, very likely. Try slower wheels.

Re: How's the season going?

Very little roller skiing for me this season, deplorably; a little with my very young nieces who are getting into the sport. Yesterday, however, I tested my latest roller skis. More on them and that on my website.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

Indeed, there are so many of these stories. I've always wondered why top athletes risk it, especially with no protection gear other than helmet and going on new or unfamiliar roads, and this was a high speed crash so unnecessary risks were definitely taken. I believe roller skiing on roads or track...

Re: The danger of roller skiing

I can attest to these dangers. While descending a hill on my roller skis back in the fall of 1994 the front wheel picked up a rock that wedged between the wheel and the frame. This immediately stopped the wheel and the skis. I took several steps trying to stop my momentum but on the third step I tw...

The danger of roller skiing

A new reminder of how dangerous roller skiing is came this week when Martin Johnsrud Sundby crashed during training, injuring his thigh. He will not be able to train for a couple of weeks. Let us hope Sundby's injury is not as serious as the one Björn Dählie got when roller skiing, an injury that en...

Re: Rollerski wheels gone square

Hello! Your problem seems very odd. Are the roller skis too fast for you with #3 if the wheels roll freely? Have you tried #4?
