Re: Nordic spoof and training videos...

50 km at Holmenkollen 1959: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th19O8I7v1Y Winning time was 3:18:46 Quite fun to see. Notice the 'home made' single track through bumpy woods. Not too much snow either. The old style double poling bending the upper body almost 90° is unique for the era. Also how they sor...

Re: Blink 2019 - Lysebotn Opp - Races

To answer my own question Johaug would have been 18th in the Men's race, about 10% off the winning time. Of course if she were in a group she may have come higher but I can't see her winning. Musgrave, Kruger and Johaug are all in the same ballpark though.

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 t...

Apparently there was a double poling only race for the first time. Anyone have a video link for those races?
there was, I saw a bit of footage, I'll see what I can do

Re: SUMMER BIATHLON

Hah yes, Doro and friends (San Filipo and Nicole isn't it?), what an idea. Rumours that Jessie Diggins may be in the next installment although the team are busy with the French version of Blink Festival in Annecy at the start of September.

Re: NEW CLASSIC ROLLER SKIS

I'm yet to be convinced by brakes - I just don't ski anywhere with big slopes though. You should post a video of them.

Re: SUMMER BIATHLON

the secret is not to run at 100% or you won't be able to shoot,
although as you are in America maybe you get M16s to shoot with, like Simon Fourcade

Re: Red flexor and rollerski drop

Turning in the Jenex 150 RC’s can be difficult since they’re so heavy. Compounding this is the massive drop from my binding. Would installing the red flexor in the binding improve control by reducing rollerski drop from the boot? Follow up question...is installing the red flexor difficult? The red ...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Had a one on one with an instructor last week - it wasn't planned as such but we were supposed to be a small group from the ski club but only I turned up. It was very useful, I knew I had a few faults from watching videos but it was good to go through them and how to correct them. The principal one ...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

My problem is not enough flex / extension and arms generally too wide giving a "chimp on rollerskis" look. Ok not quite that awful but you get the idea. I must say seeing the scar tissue on Tara Mountain-Goat (or whatever she's called in real life), last year's womens Castle winner, puts me off roll...
