I like biathlon,,,one of my favorites actually,,,

I took a pair of cable binding downhill skis,,,

so I could strap hiking boots into them,,,

cut fish scales in the bottom for homemade cross county ski,,,

metal edges ski well,,,took real rifle,,,and Apache buddy,,,

and we would go hunt elk,,,cross country skiing is work,,,

and the suck,,,so relate kinda,,,I would have busted real

cross county skis,,,narrow little things with funny shoes,,,

not my style,,,if you don't hook the back of the cables to the sides,,,

you can lift your heel,,,metal toe wings above Vibram soles of boots,,,

cable around the back of the sole,,,

works great,,,elk is good eating too,,,never cared for deer much,,,

unless grind up with pork fat and make sausage,,,so elk,,,

they should have to use real military rifles,,,and shoot helmets,,,

of the other countries,,,just my opinion,,,of course...

It is hunting in the winter in Scandawhovia. I bet they just round up the local billie-bobs and put the best ones on the national team.
