Re: Your heritage?

Grew up in SF Bay Area. Played soccer in high school and one year of college. Sophomore year after my exit from the soccer team, I was looking for something new. Sierra Designs in Berkeley hosted a nordic skiing night; I had skied downhill a couple of times in the Sierra but it seemed too expensive-...

Re: Video link for World Cup races -- US viewable...

Ralph, If you buy a VPN hookup you can watch the races on Norwegian TV: NRK (Norsk commentators) or Eurosport on Bristish TV. I pay $99 annually for the hookup; but you can purchase VPN use monthly. NRK usually covers races from start to fininsh for all competitors. Have you heard is Essex has enoug...

Re: American Birkie 2018

After I ruptured my L4 disc at the start of last November, I was sure I could still make the 2018 Birkie. Was not in the cards. Two fellow ski racers here, both Physical Therapists, continually hammered me to go slow that it would be better for the long run. So basically I put on my snow cleats and ...

Re: Just a winter pic

Jay are you referring to the Super One in Whitefish? Trying to remember if I have seen a Bianchi in classic "Celeste" color recently.

Re: Just a winter pic

Ralph,
We got a little rain last night here in Whitefish. It was downright enjoyable going for a run this morning - no clogged sinuses or coughing from excess smoke inhalation.

Re: Race Suits, your thoughts?

Have always worn a one piece race suit. Started with an Odlo Norwegian 1976 team knicker suit(which I still own and occasionally race a local classic race in), followed by a full leg one piece Terriknit in the late 70's(which I still own and has been used as a Halloween costume a couple of times). T...

Early winter here in NW Montana....BUT!

Ruptured my L4-5 disc two weekends ago. Saw neurologist yesterday. Said it was probably just a weakness from 64+ years of activity that gave out. Other than that the MRI showed that my back was better than a lot of 30 year old patients that they see. I have a dull ache in the upper left quad muscle ...

Re: Birkebeiner Course Info

I agree, Ben has been pretty up front with his assessment. Like Jay said, they are going to do something which will be determined by Mother Nature. That is fair enough for me. I will stay home and watch the US ladies in the World Champ skiathalon on Saturday via livestream and then take my granddaug...

Re: Birkebeiner Course Info

Pulled the plug today on flight and rental car. Not interested in running, and while the party sounds like fun, it is not worth dropping another $1,000. That purple bib is not getting any closer.

Re: 2016 Birkie

I am breaking down this year and having BNS wax my skis. I think I have the "cold" Birke pretty dialed in, but I do not have a full compliment of waxes at the warmer end of the world and BNS is doing the full Monty this year all the way up to topcoat and structure. I usually work off of th...

Re: Anyone Skiing Yet?

Would be skiing for the first time this weekend except for the remnants of a head/chest cold I managed to acquire. Two areas are grooming here, both above 5,000'. Marginal snow here in the valley. We are definitely in a moisture pattern here and it is supposed to turn colder as the week progresses. ...
