Will Cross Country Ski Pile-Up Ever End?

“Cross Country skiing in Estonia. Many many falls and crashes!!” notes the poster of this video about the Tartu Marathon. Filmed by Aivo Jurken at the second kilometer of the race, this video is hard to stop watching with an endless stream of skiers crashing, doing the “pizza” and even walking down the hill.

Just skip ahead to about the six minute mark to catch the tail-end of the A-team racers, grab a bowl of popcorn and watch the mayhem. Things get interesting starting at about 7:00 and just keep on rolling.
