Cross Country Sking in London



When I saw this cross country skier in Hyde Park I had a bit of a laugh, I hadn't seen anything like it before. But then, I came across the story of the Brazillian Olympic cross country skier, Hélio Freitas so the joke is probably on me.

Helio Freitas - the Rocky Balboa of Cross-country skiing... so do you think this guy is training for an amateur competition, or is he just being doofy?

We have quite a few of these zipping around the Rosebowl parking lot (Pasadena).

... and all it would need is a bit of snow to do the real thing. Not much around here either.

The parkas indicate at least the weather is cool. Also, this guy is about to run into a traffic jam. I hope he is not going to fast.

never seen that sight here. all skiers go to the snowy mountains here.

Julia - I have to think he is training.... nobody would do this for fun, surely?

Luggi - Isn't the rosebown a football stadium? What a wonderful picture - I think they might be a bit vulnerable to a tackle, though.

Bob - but if he had snow it would look sensible! (never too certain about using skis to go uphill, though)

Denton - LOL!

midnitebara - not too many mountains in Park Lane! (otherwise I'd be there....)
