Re: FIS shortens 4 x 10 km relay to 4 x 7.5 km

FIS had their congress in Greece now, and instead of the expected changes with the dropping of classic sprint and skiathlon (15 km classic + 15 km skate), it was to change the relay only, taking everybody by surprise. The purpose is to help smaller nations and the general feeling that sporting even...

Re: World's most eager skier?

I see your point Magnus and its terrible to watch in real time what is happening to Sweden. In many ways, I view the decline of SAAB automobile as very symbolic to what is happening in Sweden. Sweden is a proud country with a rich culture that is worth fighting for. Thanks, Dave, but we have a migh...

Re: World's most eager skier?

When most of us see a smoke stack emitting a cloud, we immediately think about all the dirty carbon being released into the environment. I was thinking this until I stared doing my know research on climate issues about 2-years ago. The reality is what we are seeing is just water vapor, carbon is co...

Re: World's most eager skier?

It's simple actually. What role does government play in controlling solar activity or ocean current cycles? I don't know, but it is rather scary to see a clear blue sky transform into a milky haze by air plane exhaustions. This has happened many times here. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Clima...

Re: World's most eager skier?

Its great to see this guy at it again this season! The climate fraudsters are telling us that snow is a thing of the past. The Nordic ski industry has a massive campaign called "Save our Winters." However, the ski season is still open at a few New England resorts - we're talking about ski...

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

Can any pair of roller skis, either skate or classic, be fitted with very slow bearings which would hopefully cut out some portion of the speed? Myself I'm just looking to get the hard workout in and slow speeds with hard effort is fine. So my question is can most roller skis be retrofitted with sl...
