Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

Wow how cool to have a course with them! What's your take on the Nordeex skis? Reason for change? I have very little knowledge about rollerskiing but I had a pair of Powerslides before, in comparison the Nordeex are much lower to the ground and there are fewer vibrations. The fork for the wheels is...

Re: Anyone rollerskiing yet?

I did one long run (for me 16km) along the tow path but it was very very hot. I'm going to restart soon as I have a 3 day rollerski / biathlon course in August with Marie Dorin and Lois Habert, post retirement MD has a bit more free time on her hands. I'm currently building a softair biathlon target...

Let's hope it doesn't rain for the Blink this year. It will be good seeing Johaug back losing her cool with the runners!

Re: Johaug is back

Holmenkollen? Did you see the rain? (still at least she won't need sunscreen under the Oslo skies).

Crazy fast on the descent. Not many spectators.

Re: Uphills

but generally is this endless climbing useful for anything? It sure isn't fun, and too hard training will take long to recover? Not for technique anyway, unless you are really strong. I went out at the weekend, first real rollerski of the year, 16km and it was pretty hard, and that was all flat... ...

vLogs to keep you going over the summer

Here's a couple which may be interesting:-

Johannes Høsflot Klæbo

and Aristide Begue (it focuses quite a bit on his sister who has moved up in the French B squad for 2019 so we may see a lot more of her in the future).

Uphills

We've all seen "Climb to the Castle" and the Blink Festival where they climb the Norwegian "Alpe d'Huez" (Lysebotn Opp). What tips do people have for climbing other than the obvious of "lose weight" and "build muscle". I find it much harder on rollerskis than ...

That is a very good idea if they can get it to work, reliably.

Johaug is back

Therese Johaug was in a class of her own winning the 10 km long Forney Cup race on Thursday. Johaug participated in her first proper competition after she returned from a 18 month doping ban. She ran at 33.36 and was 1.31 minutes ahead of the national team colleague Østberg. https://www.abcnyheter.n...

Re: Johannes Høsflot Klæbo makes custom rollerski with IDT

I saw the article but couldn't make head nor tail of it. Are they getting rid of the any return ratchet and adding something that is based on your kick to stop the return, more like a real classic ski? Didn't someone here talk about something similar?

Re: World's most eager skier?

What a nice back garden. Would love to live like that one day, but only if there are (daily) groomed trails nearby. I'm so spoiled for that now.. And fab video in a beautiful scenery Trotro. I like the slow and 'hold' camera flying. Thanks guys, it was just an initial attempt at some video, the sno...

Re: World's most eager skier?

You've got nicer conditions than we have, no real re-freeze around here for crust skiing for weeks due to temperatures + cloud cover
