Road rage against rollerskiers

There is a known case where French biathlete Simon Fourcade was driven off the road on purpose while training in France and got hurt, but it's happened to veteran XC skier Anders Aukland and I'm sure others as well. Aukland actually had to take off his ski and use as a weapon as the driver came out ...

Expect her to smash them all up Lysebotn. Climbing always was her thing, being light.

Re: Ole-Einar Bjørndalen retires at 44

Sure the young wife had something to do with, but maybe more that he was running her life and even business (she has a clothes line) as I understood it. With a new kid as well it could have been the stress factor to give several spells pre-season, but then he's had symptoms for years now. About micr...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Middle of June and I haven't been out for a single run yet! It's due to many factors, but mostly the winter season was so amazing and I skied so much that I don't have the hunger to ski at the moment, the other is that May was the warmest month on record here (30 C regularly). You? Any new equipment...

Re: Johaug is back

Summer training at Sognefjell https://i.imgur.com/ndQKfH8.jpg She got beat in a summer rollerskiing event (Oslo Ski Show) by Haga and Østberg, but these things depends on training cycle etc. What's interesting is that she says being out for 2 years and she can tell her snow skis are not good enough ...

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

For the sake of tradition maybe, but if the argument for shortening was to get more countries in the mix, that can only mean more excitement?

Re: Uphills

Agree it seems harder on wheels, but generally is this endless climbing useful for anything? It sure isn't fun, and too hard training will take long to recover?

Re: Johaug is back

With Bjørgen retired and Kalla's motivation questionable after the Olympic season, looks like Johaug will clean the table next season, if not the following too.. It will be interesting to see the reception she'll get and whether this will affect her motivation beyond the 'revenge' comeback, but Kall...

Re: Anyone skiing yet?

Season over and besides some glorious days in the best winter for decades, a particularly fond memory of a trip coming to a café in the woods which is also a farm and I'm surprised by a small horse let loose that's going between the tables outside looking for snacks. A lovely meeting. :-) http://www...
