Re: Trail design: is XC keeping up w the times?

Three places I ski have worked on their trails quite a bit - widening them to make them better for skating and racing, and/or and making them smoother so they are skiable with less snow. A fourth place in my area is new, and has some very wide, high speed banked sweeping turns, which is a pretty new...

Re: Are "no DP" zones really affecting races?

The modern groomed racing course stands out as an obvious "road bike" equivalent to our mtbike-type ski trails. I've been trying to make this comparison for about 10 yrs without getting any wider traction but it's the biggest reality in our ski region. Very strange. Very strange that peop...

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

seeing all those sweet videos of European pro rollerski racing Question: does anyone know if these videos show the skiers using "pro" : elbow pads, knee and hip pads, plus full face helmets (I know you don't use those but neuro suggests them). To show how safe the sport can be. Anyone know?

I'd rather be directly aggressive than play the sort of passive/aggressive games you do. So thanks for that comment.

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

you think it's uncool with protective gear to go rollerskiing, You're putting words in my mouth. I never said ANYTHING close to "uncool". The chance of severe injury is much greater on a bike than rollerskis. The speed is greater and you are more surrounded by other traffic. You're saying...

Re: How to promote rollerskiing?

I don't want to do an activity where this amount of protection is recommended. I don't think most people do. There is no way I am going to do an aerobic sport with that amount of equipment. Zero. Why? I just don't want to wear that amount of armor stuff. I don't on my bike. I'm not talking about sa...

I met him at a ski race.

Hope your health situation improves Jay.

Home commitments mean I can't travel far to ski, and while snow in the northeastern US has been average, that can mean very few possibilities with 90 minute of where I live. My "local" place - an hour away - just opened up for the second time this year.
