In real terms, it would only be an issue if you were doing it a lot, as in often (like every couple minutes). I could see that that would become more than most would bear.
Other than that, we'd rather have a good skater in the paceline that let's go a stinker, than some tight-butt that skates like crap.

No, but let me state it simply:

No one wants to smell someone else's sh!t.

There is a reason you don't train in a bathroom - it's so that you don't have to be subjected to inhaling other's methane.

If you have to release noxious fumes just say "my turbo is about to kick in" this will warn fellow skaters so they can take appropriate action.

Summer of 2008 at the New York City Skate Marathon & NY 100K my skating buddy told me that a pro skater took a leak while skating. He pulled a few feet to the right out of the line and just whipped it out and did his thing while maintaining pace.
I am told this is not an isolated event but common.

Sorry, but that guy is not getting back in the paceline near me. Of course I could hang a roll of TP on my back with a note to please wipe hands before pushing. Gross!

This is the nite before the race, seems to be what you eat:

Okay, the pissing and keeping pace thing is skill. I don't know about you but I require concentration for that. I would not want to fall at that time, could be embarrassing trying to explain that injury. Did any of the camera men on the bikes film it? :P

Blazing Saddles video had me rolling hehe.

I guess it wouldn't be bad if I warned them.

"Hey back there, I think for a few minutes you may not want to see how low you can go with the draft I am about to pitch out."

I guess someone drafting wouldn't benefit from it at that moment since they are about to be met with artificial wind resistance. :P

Okay, I will go with the warning them thing because there will be no way to sneak one out and keep pace at the same time. Heck, usually squeezing one out requires you either to stop all actions until it is done or continue the last action until done.
Roads?? How I roll I need no roads.

Ok, those of you who can sense when an aromatic event is about to take place can play the heroic, passť' P.C. game, but I'm guessing that if you do notice the event approaching your ending, then you're not paying close enough attention to everything else, nor are you putting in 150%. I.e., you're at the end of the pace line and it really doesn't matter how you play the turbo hit anyway. It has always (if I even notice) been a surprise for me when I get that extra bit of propulsive push. But then I never pay close attention to my lower gastric functions in the heat of battle. I say, we're all big boys and girls. We can certainly handle some au' naturale once in a while from the unfortunate bloke in front of us, for he's about to get dropped anyway.

I must just be immature...I reread this post a couple of times a week when I need a laugh! I'm going to have to do a special blog story about it!

But anyway...Sunday at practice. A girl who hadn't been out with us in 6 months due to a broken leg was back. We lined up fast to fastest, then the coach tried to get everyone fired up for burn pace! She goes "Yay! It's great to be back!" then RIPPPPPPPP Awkward silence, then totally deadpan..."As you can tell, I'm very excited." Classic...the little kids didn't quite know what to do with themselves! ROTFLMAO!!!

Roll to Live, Live to Roll
