Quick mental quiz, don’t shout out in front of the class, just keep it in your mind: What is the first sport you think of when you hear the words ‘extreme winter sports.’
Ok, is it… extreme cross country skiing???
No? Huh, weird.
To be fair, we weren’t really sure what to expect when US Biathlete, raconteur, and total stud Corrine Malcolm clued us in to extreme cross country, but we’re fans now. In the above video, by Red Bull (natch), we see the annual, end-of-the-year, destroyed-ACL-fest that is extreme cross country skiing and it looks awesome. Seriously, fireballs as the skiers launch off the jump? Really?
Every time we see Red Bull produced event it makes us wish that DailyHouse founder Joey Cheek had started an energy drink company rather than a sports blog, but whatcha goin’ to do?
Do you have an extreme sport or a new twist on an old sport that needs covering? Send it to us. We love cool stuff.
