"Who us? We have no idea what 'oops' you are talking about..."
"But we are too cute & happy to ever misbehave!" say innocent Max & Zorro

Well, it does not happen often; but the "Siberian Wrestling Mishap" does happen on the trails ever so rarely. It always starts with that "look" from one brother to the other. As soon as I see the "look", I know either I verbally talk through it quickly or all is lost. Today I was not quick enough to catch and correct the "look"...

Max giving Zorro the "look" as we are in a dead sprint in French Gulch. Uh-oh...

Here it is in video:
(1) Sprinting along the trails.
(2) The "look" from Max to Zorro.
(3) The "consequence" of me not catching the look and Max & Zorro taking care of things.
(4) As quickly as it started it ends as both "shake it off" and start trotting down the trail again!
[watch on youtube if no video loads below]

Luckily, this is a rare occurrence and 99% of the time it is well-behaved skijoring :)
Now that's more like it - perfect paired form as we sprint along the trail.

Despite the mishap, it was still a very productive day touring around French Gulch: 8.9 miles with 900 feet of elevation climbed and a top speed of 21 MPH (& one "mishap blowout" on the trail :-)
