Re: Therese Johaug doped

It is, but her excuse is exactly the same kind as the real dopers use so can't really be different. Studies show good looking people get off more lightly in the legal system, and Johaug is such a merited athlete too, but nothing swayed them this time and I applaud them for it. It shows it's not just...

Cold winter this time?

Got the first snowfall in the mountains now. Very early.

In the old days, it was the odd warm year. Now it seems to be the odd cold one. Hopeful this will be one.

Anybody know the trends? El Nino, Nina or whatever it is rules this nowadays?

I agree but still find it to be the correct punishment.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

Another World Cup skier with medal chances at the Olympics, Didrik Tonseth (Norway), had a nasty spill in Italy now . Concussion and scrapes. Going 50 kph downhill and a gravel road side road had spilled gravel onto the main which stopped Didrik's wheel. He said he was lucky and could have been much...

Re: How's the season going?

Got going regular rollerskiing again now that my boat is parked for the winter, but of course now there's wet leaves. I thought today would be the first outing free of a dog incident, but then one had to bark at me at the end.. :x Another thing I've been considering lately is the sheer noise of the ...

Re: Bad weather?

Very wet but surprisingly no major incident. The pundits said the newer wheels are miles from what they were just 6-7 years ago which is very encouraging. They also tip Halfvarsson to do well this winter, even though early summer form is not always a good sign. But Sweden was good to find form last ...

Re: How's the season going?

On the question of my yoga routine -- I've been doing it for years and have a routine of many different poses that I go between. I don't hold positions for longer than 3 breathes and it is more about moving my body into different positions than holding some stretch for a long period of time. I make...

Re: How's the season going?

Nice training routine. Wish I could do something similar too although not every day of the week. Been thinking about yoga as it happens. Can you tell a little about it? Do you work up a sweat or is it mostly 'stretching' exercises?

How's the season going?

Have you been much rollerskiing this season? Anything to tell? New equipment or stories from the road? Changed or tried different styles? Me I've hardly been out unfortunately. Maybe 5-6 times total. A bad back early on, and now engrossed with my new boat hobby. Also had to cut out weekend outings b...

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. This could easily be the difference betwee...
