Some great skicross action!

I love skicross. For me it was an amazing opportunity to continue with competitive skiing after I stopped racing alpine. I wasn’t able to transfer the skills from one sport to another like the great SX athletes of today. Take a look at the big boys on the Canadian SX team, they all have a…
