Roller skiing is taking over the sport, doggies! First, it was Zach Osborne and now Justin Barcia. It’s becoming a thing. A revolution even.
Slaw had no idea what roller skiing was, so I went to a trusted source: Wikipedia.
According to said site, roller skiing is defined as such:
Roller skiing is an off-snow equivalent to cross-country skiing. Roller skis have wheels on their ends and are used on a hard surface, to emulate cross-country skiing. The skiing techniques used are very similar to techniques used in cross-country skiing on snow.
First created as a summer training exercise, roller skiing grew into a competitive sport in its own right. Annual championships are held in various locations around the world. Most, if not all, national cross-country ski teams around the world roller ski during the off-season for specific physical training simulating winter skiing. In Norway, separate roller ski facilities have been constructed to allow exercise off public roads.
I think Vurb needs to start a second site just for roller skiing. I will be bringing it up at our next board meeting.
