Dear cross country skiing purists - please read no more ( you, likely, stopped reading anyway, upon seeing the title of this story). Yes, we do realize the competition format we shall be talking about here is a far cry from the sport of tough woodcutters, gliding through forests using time-tested diagonal style. Sorry. To all the others: rejoice! The fastest growing competition format in cross country skiing has crossed the seas and is coming to Continental Europe: Say hello to the first ever König Ludwig Lauf Superspint If you are still a tad fuzzy as to what it is - here's a vid explaining it all & featuring the format's biggest international star, Ludvig Søgnen Jensen a.k.a Ludde.

There is a chance that you've been to Berlin at least once in your life. Or want/plan on coming there.

And if you've been to Berlin, the chances are you dropped by Tempelhof Airfield, the location as worth visiting as any other monument in the city. The place has many claims to fame , but two really stand out: - It was the world's first true airport at the time where planes elsewhere were pretty much unloading passengers into shacks – built in the 1930s to impress, to fascinate, to regale a visitor. - It is also the world's very first large airport to be decommissioned and turned into…
