Our featured video this month comes from Germany, from the Speedskating Shop (http://www.speedskating-shop.de/).  Reporter Andreas Peter Merkel shows off his skating skills, demonstrating how Skorpion Quadlines can be used for pre-season ski training. Since we can't speak German, here's a brief outline in English:

"If it hasn't snowed yet and the need to get out and practice your short swing is becoming unbearable, pick up your Skorpion Quadline skates and head off to the nearest road or pavement for some practice! The carving properties of the Skorpion Quadline allow for a near perfect simulation of the short swing (wedeln) for those who are looking for technical skiing and endurance training or for that fun factor prior to the winter season."

If you would like your YouTube video featured on Skorpion, simply upload it to YouTube with "Skorpion" somewhere in the title and we'll keep an eye out for it. Or, tell the rest of the world by posting a link in the comments area below.
