Swix Ski Classics #1

The first of the big European Classic races was held Sunday.  The event was originally scheduled for the Czech Republic, but lack of snow forced them to move the "elite" race to Switzerland.

The full video below.  One nice double-pole section is just after 1:24:10 (for about two and a half minutes).  The lead skier had just broken away from the large pack and is hammering away with some very nice double pole technique.
