Cross-Country history you didn’t know

FasterSkierNovember 10, 2003

Author Thor Gotaas has written a wonderful book about the history of Norwegian Cross-Country skiing from its modest start through today’s modern sport. and have gotten permission to write excerpts (and translations) from the book.

“Foerst i loypa” (translated: First in the track”) is about Norwegian Cross-Country skiing, full of facts, humor and stories. It starts with the old-fashioned skier working in the woods lumberjacking as training for skiing, and ends with skating, money and doping.
