25 Days of Christmas: Day 19 – 100% Race Craft Goggles One of the most difficult ‘wish lists’ for Santa to fill is the goggle list, especially when someone asks for the 100% Race Craft series of goggles. There are so many cool colours to choose from that Santa normally just pulls a set out of his bag and that’s what they get. Seriously, have you seen all the available
