Gear News, Newsfeed
Yesterday we've published a press-release by Spine Sports regarding their new boots. First of all, the Dailyskier.com is a commercial media resource.

To develop a product fit for xc skiers the Germans have enlisted help of no lesser figure than Jean-Marc Gaillard, a skier from Equipe de France who's career is spanning nearly two decades ( and running) – seen on the photo…
