To me, sport is about clearly defined results based on a set of rules with the “winner” being the person who most closely achieved the designated optimum result: higher, faster, stronger. [...]
Source: Tourism Whistler In this day and age the idea of “local” means more than ever. Why buy/ride/support/eat/use products that come from the other side of the world when you can find better stuff right here at home?
