Novel Winning Technique at Race Finish


Sat, Mar  25, 2006 - By Dieter Hohnke

Here's a novel new approach to winning a race at the finish, adpated from baseball. Last year, at the European xc ski championships in Cortina, Italy, the Spanish racer Gutierrez successfully used the new approach to beat the competition at the finish line.

Now that the season is (almost) over it can be revealed that several members of the Cross Country Ski Headquarters team have secretely trained this slick new technique and are ready for next season to take back  the Michigan cup.

(Too late for the other teams; we do NOT recommend trying this on roller skis!)
