Yeah thanks -- that was fun to watch and we've all been there in some event -- hiking, trail running, marathoning or long ski event. Hope everyone is well.

Yeah I just saw this! He had a great fun attitude but... It drove me NUTS! The poor sap never got a single class or seemed to try to learn the first thing about HOW to ski! Every now and then somebody gave him a lame word of advice who he happened across. ...Tho in his actual event he skied w 2 ppl who seemed to know what they're doing. Oddly, his "theme" was doing this race with "no training." it wasn't that he had no training -- it's that he had no skill or help or classes or coaching or friends that he skied with. it was like he was skiing in a vacuum. no youtube. no books. ugh!!!
