Doping during the '90's

on .

 

Swedish Television on “Uppdrag Granskning” just had a 58-minute report called bloodrace. It was about the severe XC hemoglobin doping problems in the 90’s. I was personally aware of the doping problems in the 90’s. Attended the World Championships in Falun ‘93, Thunder Bay ‘95 and Ramsau ‘99. A lot of the information that I am writing came from the show, but some came from World Cup skiers that I will not name.

Val Di Fiemme

Today’s 50 K win for Johan was indeed something different. We know from numerous studies that skiing in a pack, or skiing behind someone, saves an enormous amount of energy. When the study at Lavalle University in Quebec was performed I received a copy of the study because the data from the skiers was recorded from both skiing on snow and on roller skis.

ROLLER SKI FERRULE WITH SNOW LIKE FEEL

 V2 has a worldwide reputation for good roller ski ferrules. But, the problem with carbide hitting asphalt is the sudden jolt that has given many skiers elbow and shoulder tendinitis. When you ski on snow there is damping by the compaction of the snow.

THE MOST VERSATILE SKI FORM AVAILABLE

Have you been looking for a X-C racing and backcountry ski form that is strong weighs just 1600 grams and is only 115 cm long when collapsed. (The two forms slide towards each other until they meet on an extrusion that is 115 cm long.) The form takes no time to mount to a table or bench, can accommodate skis from 140 to 212 cm long and widths from 40 to 100+ mm and is so rapid to adjust and clamp to the binding that you can remove a ski and mount a new one in just 20 seconds? If this is what you have been looking for, the new V2 Ski Form is the form for you.

 

A happy Gunde Svan

In today’s World Junior Championship Girls relay it was all between Russia and Sweden. Here are some comments from the winning skiers:

 

First leg: Julia Svan, Gunde’s daughter: “The Russian took off immediately. Didn’t panic but worried that she would pull away. Managed to stay on her back and about half way into the first leg we were alone about twenty seconds ahead of the third place team.”
