Cross Country Skiing Can Be Hilarious

Skiing crash headerWe don’t usually post video of cross country skiing at Gunaxin (actually, we don’t think we ever have before), but thanks to a video posted over on Reddit, we’ve learned that the sport can actually be entertaining. In a video from the annual Vasaloppet race in Sweden, we get to watch skier, after skier, after skier suffer from almost cartoonish crashes on a particularly dangerous patch of snow. The chain reaction falls create a pile up that continues to take out a decent chunk of the skiers attempting the 90km event. Our favorite is the faceplant at the 1:30 mark.

This year’s version of the event is Sunday, March 3rd.
