Cross Country Checkup

I wish they would show more of the race. I think cross-country skiing is difficult to watch because of how they televise it. You see two points: the start and the finish. You gain no perspective of how hard the athletes are working other than watching all of them collapse at the finish line (as I saw on many highlight reels today). That being said, I cross-country ski myself, so I know it's difficult. So why isn't it watchable? Why is it less compelling than other race sports (e.g., long-track speed skating)?
