Anyone rollerskiing yet?

I guess with the poor winter in most parts you are all out already or what? The gravel on my river path finally cleared and my foot damage improved so eager to go out 1st May which is the earliest the doctor has allowed me out. Haven't been snow- or rollerskiing for months so super excited to get go...

New racing technique

The new comet of the World Cup, Johannes Klaebo has invented a new style that's really worked well for him. It's a kind of running or jumping stride / herringbone. Notice how high he lifts the back ski. They say this way allows for max weight over the grip zone, and frequency can be increased as wel...

Re: Slipped disc

Happy to report that power and functionality is coming leaps and bounds, and now I can even walk on my heels which before seemed impossible. Finally had my first day at the gym too which feels like normality restored. Still have to wait another month before I'm allowed to try rollerskiing, but reall...

Re: A star is born

..And then ending the season in Quebec with victory in the 15 km Classic Mass start and 15 km Free Pursuit, taking the overall Canada Mini Tour victory. I will not mark every result from now on, from his first season in World Cup is more than enough to show what pundits say is the biggest ever XC ta...

Look at it yourself. Rent the film and watch an expert confront the data. It's not expensive. Much less than a cinema ticket or a book. If nothing else, you too will not look at Holmenkollen ski arena in the same way again.. ;)

Re: The Holmenkollen organist

The thing about this is that he finds a map and a location, and it turns out to be to an island, Oak Island, where people have been searching for treasure after sensational finds for more than a century. There's been a TV series on History Channel about it where people have been searching for treasu...

Correction to that, Salamon has now checked more, and it turns out it's actually goat hair.

Re: Skin ski, what to get?

I asked Salomon Norway what exactly was the synthetic material, and they now got back to me from I suppose head office that it is not synthetic after all, but goat hair.

For another debate, but it seems too improbable that all the religions just happened by chance.

Re: The Holmenkollen organist

The thing is, I have no beliefs. I look at the existing evidence and carefully form hypothesis. How can that be when you firmly cling to the belief that Shakespeare is the true author and will not look at anything to the contrary, but dismiss it out of hand? About Shakespearean scholars, the film p...

Re: The Holmenkollen organist

That's unfair and uncalled for. Just because some conspiracy theories are wrong and that people are gullible, doesn't mean that there aren't any big secrets or conspiracies. On a massive scale too. Just take religion. All of them can't be true at the same time which means most of them has to be a co...
