The French are set to dominate the World Ski Championships after they discovered pastry is almost twice as fast downhill as conventional ski construction material.
It has been a challenge baking pastry that is perfectly smooth and also ski-shaped, said Francois Swunsgreat, head chef at SkiTeamFrance. But now that we have, how you say, perfected it, we will be unbeatable.
The Germans are working on a strudel-based ski system in a bid to catch up but with little success so far.
We are making our strudelskis too tasty, said Franz Izestillgonnawin of the Bavarian SkiVerks. Little squirrels come out of the trees and eat them before our skiers have reached the bottom of the hill.
