That is REAL skiing
One of my friends here at the institute agrees that
cross-country skiing is a sport for real men like himself,
since he made THE real test, Vasaloppet which he made at the time
But on a suprisingly interesting discussion on the nordic-skiing list
about pole-length and double poling, the example that proves the
possibillity of information exchange on the net, I've done a simple
simulation of a
double poling - yet headless - skier. This
me in an embarassing way - some years ago I usually died after some 5 km in
every race, all the time, race after race...
...and I still ski into the darkness in most races...
