Sorry wasting your time with stating the obvious, but the language of Generation Z is one of a meme. Those kids don't tell each other lengthy jokes or wax on about injustices of life - they just send each other a fitting meme. Meet and greet the world's top Instagram page about cross country skiing that speaks to the young audiences in their own language - and no, it's not The Daily Skier,sadly. We dig the concept but lack in specific talents. ....We chat today with the leader of the mysterious FSG group who, being an active skier of some considerable prowess, wants to keep his name out of limelight - all we could tell you is that he himself and three other members of his informal collective are perfectly…

Spring, Skiers, Singles…

Podrán cortar todas las flores, pero no podrán detener la primavera! ”You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming!” That beautiful quote from Pablo Neruda (on a very different occasion) eerily relevant in describing what we got outside our windows this year. Being stuck at home is hardly romantic. Silver lining? Great time for dreaming! Let's just clarify a fee things: - Single is in " single boy". Analyzing girls eligibility for dating is oh-so-twentieth century! In short - go figure out yourself, we shan't tell you. - Shirtless post on Instagram is a must - nobody wants to dream about some shivering in a cold rando. Decidedly unsexy. Even for a skier. - You might be surprised by acute absence of Russian skiers, ditto…

This week Johannes Klaebo delighted his fans by streaming his indoor workout session. 60000+ views from 45 countries - that's more interest than some of pro-races generate (unless Klaebo and Bolshunov are in it, of course )! https://youtu.be/cjaeuZ4Tr_M We are of a firm opinion that most viewers were watching and repeating the Olympic champion' moves not in vain hope of overtaking him on sprint ski tracks (just ask Federico Pellegrino or aforementioned Alex Bolshunov what THEY think of chances of that happening!) No, the real reason the Youtube army of Klaebo fans was watching is because they want to have , well, the bod like him. At least a passing semblance. Sadly, Mr.Klaebo does not himself believe that he is in competition with one Portuguese footballer in popular since Antiquity…

Let's not beat around the bush: The international skiing authorities and main stakeholders are deeply concerned by an acute lack of sh*t -talking and cat-fighting in cross-country skiing, those essential elements of the " Ratings Game" in the current environment. The utter lack of sex scandals, "wardrobe malfunctions" or, at the very least, public boyfriend swapping, contributres to the falling ratings as viewers and sponsors flock to new " hawt" sports such as bog snorkeling or intimate doll rafting ( yes, there IS such a sport!) The rescue came from the East, of course. An ambitious cable-making start-up YuYeYuan CheSeal VeryBest UnLimited has offered its hi-end cables and a considerable amount of renminbi, provided an international competition featuring its products and bearing its name is organized. Being the biggest profile…
