      Introduction: <br>Although short-term (approximately 10-min) fatiguing DP has been reported not to alter the joint kinematics or displacement of the centre of mass (COM) of high-level skiers, we hypothesize that prolonged DP does change these kinematics, since muscular strength is impaired following endurance events lasting longer than 2 h. <br>Methods:<br> During the 58-km Marcialonga race ...
    • The pacing strategy and technique of male cross-country skiers With different levels of performance during a 15-km classical race 

      Welde, Boye; Stöggl, Thomas; Mathisen, Gunnar; Supej, Matej; Zoppirolli, Chiara; Winther, Andreas Kjæreng; Pellegrini, Barbara; Holmberg, Hans-Christer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-08)
      In this study the pacing strategy, cycle characteristics and choice of technique of elite male cross-country (XC) skiers during a three-lap, 15-km classical race with interval start were measured. During the Norwegian Championships in 2016, fast (n = 18, age: 26±4 yr; height: 182±4 cm; body mass: 78±3 kg (means±SD)) and slow skiers (n = 18, age: 22±2 yr; height: 183±5 cm; body mass: 78±6 kg) were ...
