A Trip in the Wayback Machine: Gunde Svan, 50 k World Championships, Seefeld 1985

While you’re waiting for winter, check out this video… a trip back in time.  The marathon skate ruled; poles went up to your eyebrows, and the ski boots were little better than bedroom slippers.  While Svan takes a feed, his skis are fast enough to glide past the Soviet skier Sachnov.  Oh yeah… it started to snow late in the race.
