Re: New racing skies

First off, WELCOME! :-) IMO, fit is more important that what brand. If you've got a ski store nearby, stop in and ask them how they fit skis to people. Don't feel any pressure to buy, just go in and have a talk with some folks. Tell them what kind of skiing experience you have, where you think you m...

FREE skis !!

I'm forced to move soon (long story), need these skis GONE. I've tried to sell them dirt cheap. No takers. I've tried to GIVE them away. Nope. WILL NOT SHIP. Must be picked up. COME GET THESE SKIS! (The RCS crowns will be well worth the gas, trust me. They are ROCKETS) The map of my general location...

Re: A letter from Bill Koch! (He likes Trail Skiing.)

That's awesome. I met him once when he was doing promo work for Rossignol, got to ski a lap at the local golf course with him. Will never forget it. Thanks Bill! :-)

Re: Nordic Combined -- no more funding

A little off skiing, but how about the 3 hours NBC spent on the "Greatest 2 Minutes in Sport", AKA the Kentucky Derby. No doubt paid for like a 3 hour advertisement. Money talks. Oh, back on jumping and nordic combined: http://www.skisprungschanzen.com/EN/Ski+Jumps/USA-United+States/MI-Mic...

Re: Nordic Combined -- no more funding

Sport isn't the only thing loosing funding. Green Bay is loosing their symphony and I guess San Francisco lost their opera. Turn that **** smart phone off and do something in real life! ;)

Re: Heart troubles and XC skiing?

I agree that you have to moderate your intensity as you age. You DO realize that you still age even though you ski, bike, whatever? You still will not live forever, so stop pushing yourself like you did when you were 25. The key is to age GRACEFULLY. This whole masters racing scene has gotten out of...

Re: Nordic Combined -- no more funding

OKay, I'm gonna quiz 'ya. :-) You live in Michigan ... how close to you is the nearest active ski jumping hill? Can you name 5 in the USA? 5 in just the Midwest? Ski jumping itself is actually pretty active on the local level, most hills around here have summer jumping capabilities. :partyman: Putti...

Re: Recovering from kick slip without injury?

I've never hurt myself from a missed kick. Ski into a boulder or tree? or simply bail into the woods vs ski over some 2 year old kid sprawled across a downhill? Sure! :D

Re: Xenon gas as the new PED?

People on FB post fantastic stories from Slate.com all the time. They sure have the news scoop on everyone else. Is that really a reputable news source?

Re: Newell's collapse? Other skiers blowing up?

Well, it's time to clean house and start over at Team USA! You watch these Youtube videos from Newell and Simi as they yuk it up in far away places like New Zealand, but when the rubber hits the road, and it's time to generate some wattage ... *SPLAT!* they're squashed like a little bug. Well, that ...

Re: This needs to be discussed until resolved

Are the racers complaining? I haven't seen Andrea Henkel mention any of this on Facebook. :D That's all I've got because we don't see ANY of this on US TV, and my internet is way to slow to watch online. You know, it's just one of those goofy "Olympic" sports that Americans have to put up ...

Re: heart rate monitor

Being intervascularly dry can throw some people into dysrhythmias, so be sure that you're well hydrated, especially at at altitude (which I know nothing about since I live at 600ft ASL). One hot summer day a few years ago I found myself in afib for about 6 hours, the only time it's ever happened to ...
