Re: FIS rollerski world championships

A nice pic from the rollerski tour (Julie Henriette Arnesen wins Madona sprint '18). Interesting how the boots are taped for an even closer fit..

Re: NEW CLASSIC ROLLER SKIS

Grats with new skis. What brake is that exactly? Swenor's own?

Re: Blink 2019 - Lysebotn Opp - Races

Impressive double poling by Musgrave. He deliberately got rid of a lot of muscle mass and it's working well, but how many times do we see 'summer stars' fade come the winter. Therese Johaug is so much in a class of her own on uphills like this that pundits are seriously suggesting she should join th...

When Dorothea Wierer in a nurse uniform puts on the rubber gloves.. 8)

About mountain bike and xc ski side by side, I believe they have around the same avg. speed interestingly.

Re: SUMMER BIATHLON

Sounds like fun, except when you say running I guess it wasn't on rollerskis?

I would love to try biathlon.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Using all my free time on a major repair with my boat ATM (leaky outdrive), so haven't rollerskied or gone to the gym or nothing for the last 2 months, but as soon as it's over the plan is to borrow top of the line skate and classic skis from a shop and see what's what. Hope you're enjoying the summ...

Didn't know the forum could be messed up after updates needing specialists to sort it. Lucky you knew a guru that could.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Interesting article. The 'cool factor' is surely a thing.

But still think safety concerns is another. I've seen too many ads with skis being sold after having been used only one or twice where they surely got cold feet after a scare or two which happens for beginners.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

I guess maybe people find it a bit dangerous or too difficult to learn.

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Another rollerski season here, I've been out once on my Jenex Aeros (winter gravel was late to be removed).

Plan is to try classical rollerskiing for the first time this season. There's a shop that lends out skis. I will also try some top skate skis as I'm a bit tired of my old bent ones.

You?

Did you ever walk out of the cinema in the middle of a film?

Where you simply couldn't take it anymore? I've done it twice. After about 10 minutes into an atrocity called 'Walker', and another one I can't even remember the name of now about some bank heist in UK. I wish I'd done it more. One thing I regret suffering through was xXx. I was on a date and didn't...

Re: CLASSIC ROLLER SKIS WITH SLOW WHEELS

If you just want to stride all day and not do much double poling, why not?

Some like JfSki prefers this and even put speed reducers front and back to make sure it's striding all the way: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=5103
