A mock cross-country skiing race was held for the 13th time in Jablonec nad Nisou on Saturday, with 67 participants donning warm ski outfits to celebrate the summer. The head organizer, Pavel Haufer, said conditions were ideal but expressed regret that a heat wave that hit the country earlier in the week hadn’t lasted. The Czech news agency reported that some “racers” wore different costumes: one of them wore a Sherlock Holmes outfit – complete with the fictional detective's pipe.
