Large XC race in Sweden. Makes my early foiling experiences look docile.

Comedy version - a bit loud for work

Well, at least it wasn't a biathlon otherwise those sound effects might have been real...

If you had that many windfoilers sailing in a confined space it would probably lead to chaos as well. I'm not even sure that is XC - looks like a road covered with snow.

What happens in a black hole stays in a black hole.

Scenes from huge Swedish race - kind of like Peachtree Road Race. Obviously, not the pointy end of the pack. From reading online comments from skilled XC'ers, that kind of downhill can be terrifying for the less skilled, especially having to ski "classic" (ie non-skating). No pizza, all french fry.

As to my windfoil brethren - scary to be sure but the skilled do just fine. At our skill level, it would be carnage.
