Re: Cold winter this time?

Raining really heavy right now. It's supposed to cool off so I'm hoping they can make snow this week. Maybe I can get on snow this weekend.

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

For the US readers, there's a pretty amazing documentary called Icarus featuring the Russian director, Rodchekov. It's on Netflix.

Re: Cold winter this time?

Duluth is a great area for skiing and has a good core of skiers, but you're right that winter is not like it used to be. We typically had Thanksgiving skiing somewhere...Giant's Ridge, Birkie Trail, Duluth, maybe even the Twin Cities. It always seemed deer hunting season was perfectly mistimed in WI...

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

I haven't read all the materials, but it sounds like: -Dr Rodchenkov was director at the Moscow laboratory which was used for testing during the Sochi Olympics -He gave very damning testimony about systematic Russian doping. Part of his credibility was a diary he kept that gave great detail. Part of...

Re: Cold winter this time?

Last year we skied and raced on a few km of artificial snow. Same thing the year before that. Today I rode my motorcycle to work, it that gives you any idea of our weather. Of course there were a couple snowfalls when you could ski for a week or two, and that meant I put less miles on the car. Up no...

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

Still just one guy and his notebook AFAICT. (who writes a diary of his crimes anyway?) He could easily have done the scraping too. Seems incredible it's all based on him. The potential for abuse and political shenanigans if something as big as this can be based on one person's involvement is massiv...

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

That is no summary of the rules but the decision of the IOC Disciplinary Commission where paragraphs 422 and 423 show the lack of methodological stringency I mentioned earlier. 1. It's a 46 page summary. 2. The rules begin on page 10 (that I was paraphrasing) Please explain how paragraphs 422 and 4...

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

Let's start with the standards. So WADA 2.2.1 It is each Athlete's personal duty to ensure that no Prohibited substance enters his or her body.....is is not necessary that intent, fault, negligence or knowing use on the Athlete's part be demonstrated.... 2.2.2 The success or failure of the Use or At...

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

Not only did he provide evidence of the sample switch, he said he conducted studies with Legkov to show how quickly drugs cleared from his system (and were undetectable by testing). That right there is reason for an "adverse finding" or whatever the hell they call it. If you think the case...

Re: Russian doping? -- (try again, on topic)

This whole thread doesn't seem to match anything I've read. I find it interesting that people believe a conspiracy theory, that has no evidence, rather than well reasoned account that has witnesses and evidence.

Re: The danger of roller skiing

If you're in hills, you have to know the roads. Even when I know the road, I don't like 50 kph. There's no room for "problems" at that speed. We have a loop with a steep climb and a gradual decent (perfect), but even on that downhill, there are sometimes rocks in a corner, and we check out...
