No reason to take offense, at least after your nations massive success in Val di Fiemme you should enjoy being the kings and queens of skiing. Btw, it was known as Val di Fiasco here. ;)

I have been in Norway and Sweden often enough and in my experience Norway is definitely then one with most impressive skiing culture and most people doing outdoors stuff at their leisure. Here we have active skiing culture at grassroots level and plenty of xc ski competitions during the winter but nowadays there seems to enormous gap between those and World cup events. Guys from the National team dominated our championship races but we got just one top-10 finish in Val di Fiemme.

It is naive and ridiculous to claim something else. Daehlie, Alsgaard, Hjelmeset, Jevne, Estil, Bjervig, Skari, Mikkelsplass, Moen...they were all doped.

You sure present a lot of convincing facts :)

The saddest thing is that the doping culture is still very strong in Norway. Tord Asle Gjerdalen is one of the best examples: http://www.fis-ski.com/uk/604/613.html? ... ype=result

Scandinavian Cups, FIS cups, in Tour de Ski rankings between 15-56...Then suddenly 1st, 3rd and 6th in World Championships. The previous success, 1st and 3rd position in World Ski Championships, 2011 Oslo.

Norway has a strong anti-doping culture. Even in the comments below newspaper articles you very rarely see anyone say "Sure they doped, so what? Everyone else did too". Also, doping to such an extent is no longer possible after the implementation of biological passports, and so cannot explain Gjerdalens results. Maybe you didn't notice that all the 1. place finishes were in the relay? He got one individual bronze this year and one individual bronze in Holmenkollen in 2011.
