In cross-country skiing, every single mile per hour must be earned. You pump your arms and legs against an endless and relentless resistance.

Much like running then? :roll:

Cross-country skiing is where the elegant majesty of winter sports goes to die an excruciatingly drawn-out death.

It's a winner!

Of all the obligatory insane "perspective" pieces on XC that run every year since forever this one had the most errors and of the most outrageous type. Bravo!

A great start with skimming the moguls at 75mph...

Now... have you seen the two mainstream replies? In my view each one also had its fatal flaws. Hilarity! There's no escaping the malarkey!
