Yep. You read it right the first time. Basically we are one step below the heat found in Hell itself, us Cross Country skiers. So all you people who thought you picked the dorkiest sport possible, you can pat yourselves on the back and maybe strip down to your spandex on your next ski. Own it, because our sport is not only silver to Hell it is:
Yep, that's right, cool.
The FIS World Cup season starts tomorrow with a 10K Freestyle in Beitostolen, Norway. We have been here for the last 10 days and were able to get a couple races (a 10K Freestyle even!) under our belt on tomorrow's course. Things are going well here and all the other teams have arrived now. There is a 4x5k and 4x10k relay on Sunday for the men and women, and we have been desperately trying to put a women's team together. If we are able to, we will be a North American team, stealing one of the Canadians for our own and likely wouldn't count in the results, as we would be a mixed team. However, the goal for us antsy girls is simply to be able to put a team together so we can race, so not counting in the final results is not an issue for us. Results for the weekend can be found at the new FIS cross country website below. Tally Ho!
