    I was amused to watch the XC ski pursuit race in the Olympics last week.
    They had to come into a transition area to switch skis and poles to go
    from classic skiing to skate skiing, and one of the front runners
    obviously understimated the importance of practicing transitions. It
    looked like he lost about 10 seconds.
