If there's no performance enhancement, OK. But I'd say being able to not abandon the next day is a sort of performance enhancement. What seems clear to me after this year of delayed startup for skating is that Tramadol makes some people l "loopy," and for others, it's a disappointment. :o) I took various pain killers in fear of how great they might me feel. I still never felt amazing! Oh well.</p><p>Anyway, not a bad article to remind us all to be careful what we take before going on the road in a car or on wheels.</p><p>I wonder what percentage of drivers on the road are actively under the influence of an opiod, alcohol, or other performance disenhancer.</p><p>I usually don't like reading the comments section, but even early on there are some funny responses. </p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/interesting-article-tramadol-cycling-and-other-sports-wsj" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/interesting-article-tramadol-cycling-and-other-sports-wsj#comments Cycling Tours 2016 2000s 2010s doping drugs Earth painkillers Tramadol UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale) World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) pro cycling http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1479 Fri, 14 Oct 2016 18:04:16 +0000 roadskater 1479 at http://roadskater.net Marathon swag bags; soap/energy bar mixup; guess the rest http://roadskater.net/marathon-swag-bags-soapenergy-bar-mixup-guess-rest <p>It's been reblogged many times but I just saw this:</p><p><a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-news-from-elsewhere-35899109"><strong>Free soap leaves bad taste for Chinese athletes</strong></a><br />By News from Elsewhere... ...as found by BBC Monitoring<br />25 March 2016</p><p><a href="http://roadskater.net/marathon-swag-bags-soapenergy-bar-mixup-guess-rest" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/marathon-swag-bags-soapenergy-bar-mixup-guess-rest#comments 2016 2000s 2010s China China (CHN) Earth energy bar goodie bag marathons soap Asia http://roadskater.net/crss/node/1474 Sat, 26 Mar 2016 00:05:15 +0000 timv 1474 at http://roadskater.net Inline Skating Roller Speedskating Tries Again for 2016 Summer Olympics wIth Golf, Baseball, Softball, Rugby 7s, Squash, Karate http://roadskater.net/inline-skating-roller-speedskating-tries-again-2016-summer-olympics-golf-baseball-softball-rugby-7s-squash-karate <p> Once again roller speedskating is trying to get into the Olympics, already being considered an Olympic Sport as referenced here...<br /> <a href="http://www.olympic.org/uk/sports/recognized/index_uk.asp" title="http://www.olympic.org/uk/sports/recognized/index_uk.asp">http://www.olympic.org/uk/sports/recognized/index_uk.asp</a><br /> <br /> ...with the official federation, Fédération Internationale de Roller Sports (FIRS), being listed here...<br /> <a href="http://www.olympic.org/uk/organisation/if/fi_uk.asp?Id_federation=56" title="http://www.olympic.org/uk/organisation/if/fi_uk.asp?Id_federation=56">http://www.olympic.org/uk/organisation/if/fi_uk.asp?Id_federation=56</a><br /> <br /> ...its main site being...<br /> <a href="http://www.rollersports.org" title="www.rollersports.org">www.rollersports.org</a> </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Locations</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Fédération Internationale de Roller Sports </span> <div class="street-address"> Viale Tiziano 74 </div> <span class="locality">Roma</span> <span class="postal-code">00196</span> <div class="country-name">Italy</div> <div class="tel"> <abbr class="type" title="voice">Phone:</abbr> <span class="value">39.06 36858543</span> </div> <div class="tel"> <abbr class="type" title="fax">Fax:</abbr> <span>39.06.36858211</span> </div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="41.930596">41° 55' 50.1456" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="12.468942">12° 28' 8.1912" E</abbr></span> </div> </div> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">International Olympic Commitee </span> <div class="street-address"> Château de Vidy </div> <span class="locality">Lausanne</span> <span class="postal-code">1007</span> <div class="country-name">Switzerland</div> <div class="tel"> <abbr class="type" title="voice">Phone:</abbr> <span class="value">(+41 21) 621 61 11</span> </div> <div class="tel"> <abbr class="type" title="fax">Fax:</abbr> <span>(+41 21) 621 62 16</span> </div> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://map.search.ch/1007-Lausanne/Château de Vidy" target="_blank">map.search.ch</a>, <a href="http://maps.google.ch?q=Ch%C3%A2teau+de+Vidy%2C+Lausanne%2C+1007%2C+ch" target="_blank">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://roadskater.net/inline-skating-roller-speedskating-tries-again-2016-summer-olympics-golf-baseball-softball-rugby-7s-squash-karate" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://roadskater.net/inline-skating-roller-speedskating-tries-again-2016-summer-olympics-golf-baseball-softball-rugby-7s-squash-karate#comments Roadskater.net 2016 Italy (ITA) Lausanne SUI olympics Rome skating speed speedskating summer olympics Switzerland (CHE) world level http://roadskater.net/crss/node/938 41.930596 12.468942 Tue, 24 Feb 2009 09:19:23 +0000 roadskater 938 at http://roadskater.net
