Roger, so good to have the semi naked skier profile pic back; seriously, pathetic as it is, this has made my day! A bit of rebellion is a good thing in my book.

He looks soooo much better without those awful green tights.Mar 28, 2012 at 5:21 pm #1860669
Definitely a new Tunnel body.Mar 28, 2012 at 6:09 pm #1860701
I think that's the first time I have ever seen him so relaxed. I wonder what the R-value of the thong is?Mar 28, 2012 at 7:13 pm #1860721

"I wonder what the R-value of the thong is?"
And I wonder what the R value of his natural insulation is.Mar 28, 2012 at 9:18 pm #1860797
I fully realise that most of you guys know diddly squat about ski jumps so just to fill you in , distance is the major factor but you get points for style (that has been taken care by ..to be revealed in a couple of days…) but you also get penalised if you are underweight. Roger worked very hard at overcoming the underweight problem.
Yes ,us Aussies like to win so we pull no punches when it comes to sport…

Thank you FrancoMar 29, 2012 at 3:00 pm #1861141
it bothers me a bit how you go on and on about tunnel tents and then clearly use the Flying Diamond in that very aerodynamic ski jump pose.

>And I wonder what the R value of his natural insulation is.
I believe the "natural insulation" is Roger's secret to going long stretches without resupply. Word on the street is that after this picture was taken, he was able to go 3 months out in the bush, hibernate for 4 more months, and hike another 2 months out. It's how he gets his svelte figure back. Or so I'm told…Mar 29, 2012 at 5:02 pm #1861215

I would tickle me no end to see this thread surpass the Carbon Flame War thread in length! (*J*)/" I'm sure Roger would be thrilled, too! =^)Mar 29, 2012 at 5:04 pm #1861217
You guys probably can't tell, but Roger is housing 14 stoves on his body in that picture testing them for performance in the wind.Mar 29, 2012 at 8:07 pm #1861287

We have to import snow from New Zealand, so it is a rather expensive exercise.
Of course we own plenty of snow ourselves (95% of Antarctica is ours…) but that is even more remote than NZ (hard to believe ,isn't it ?)
Anyway, Inspired by this most unusual victory :
the Australian Institute Of Sport contacted Roger (he already worked for some other shady Gov organization) and lo and behold Roger decided to be a consultant as well as the lead athlete.
I have high hopes for this and at this point, I think that neither the Norwegians nor them Finns will be able to catch up .

They all failed. Sad.

And I have contacted that un-named Government body to investigate a few Victorians…

If that attire rides up a bit, there won't be any secrets left.

Don't worry about the attire, that particular shot was just the "undressed rehearsal" to use to finalise the suit.
The tricky part here is that the suit has to be made of one fabric only (all of it) but here is the best part, it will be a new material that will completely turn the sport on its head.
I cannot show a picture of the fully clothed Roger in flight but I will soon drop a strong hint about the material used.
Oddly there was a bit of confusion about that "large hill jump" due to an error on the emphasis in that sentence, however that worked out in our favour in the end.
( no Australian till recently had ever watched that sport, looks kind of pointless, but a Gold medal is a Gold medal…)
