It's very cool, particularly after watching the Olympics.

You won't BELIEVE some of the tricks these guys do:

After watching this, I'm reminded yet again that I basically suck as a skier.

It's always fun watching great athletes using their equipment to do things the designers never thought of.

Also fun to be a mediocre athlete doing same =)

My best trick on x-c skis is not falling down.

My second best is not hitting trees on downhills in the woods.

Where'd that guy get twin-tip X-C skis?

Those guys are animals.  I'm exhausted after just watching that.  The face plant at 1:49 made me break out in laughter (at work...eesh).  I'm not quite sure that there was anything in there I "wouldn't believe" though.  Sorry to be a sour puss.  I'm sure the difficulty is stepped way up by their equip.  This will show that I know nothing about xc, but something i was wondering when watching the olympics, it looked like their poles have about 6 inches of a "shock" in them.  It would make sense to soften the shock of poling and give you a rebound push, but do they have "shocks"?

I have never thought of cross country as even remotely fun, but these guys sure look like they're having fun ).

I'm not all that easily impressed, but THAT was impressive!  Echo-ing lady Salina's comments, that's the only time I've watched x-country skiing and thought that I was missing out on something fun.

 Did I just see a misty flip on XC skis?
