What It Means to Be a XC Skier: A Rap Confessional

‘I’m a skier. What, you think I’m training too much? Guess what. I’m a skier. ‘

Finnish cross-country skier Juha-Matti Mikkolainen has just dropped a new anthem for the sport. He’s goofy, hardcore, unapologetic, and really loves to cross-country ski.

Cross-country skiers will appreciate the funny (and yes, ridiculous) ode to the nonstop training, roller skate practice, and tight tights the sport entails.

Cue a slow walk, workout sequences, backward caps, champagne popping, and a close-up shot of hot waxing skis.

Note: JuMi spits some explicit bars (but thankfully there’s a clean version you can check out). And that’s really all you need to know.
