    Since the thread skiing (from last winter) is locked, it is time to start a new one for this winter.

    Wintersports will start soon (I hope we´ll have enough snow...) and everybody is invited to talk about happenings in (all kinds of) skiing here. Hope this year more people participate than last year....

    Skiing rulz!

    And I think that our chances are better than they were in Nagano. Not in ski jumping though.

    We have to wait for 1,5 week more until we can get a feeling of how good they are.

    I think that this first competition gives us a good hint of what the rest of the season will be like. It was a really good german day, with Ackerman and that other guy in nordic combined too.

    Revenge! Finally!!! :)
    Those damn norweigans... I was a bit worried after the race yesterday. But not anymore! Alright! Go Per! :D

    He's from my hometown BTW... Some of my friends have met him while they were skiing (or rather, they caught a glimpse of him as he overtook them) but I've never been lucky. Maybe this winter... *crosses fingers*

    I wish you luck JL!

    Well, my sister met Janne on november 6th or so and his wife was already expecting the baby soon back then.... the baby must be late. Hope it is healthy though! I wanna see Ahonen fly again soon! Well, until he returns there is another Janne (Happonen), so I can cheer for myself ;)
