I would be interested in that as well.  I believe that NBC will have some coverage of the Birds of Prey races on Sunday, but I wouldn't be surprised if they somehow miss the winning run & just show a few crashes.

 

The women's winning run from LL is up on Universal now.

 

Thanks,

Have you tried this link for Lake Louise? I don't know if it works everywhere.  http://www.cbc.ca/sports/sportsweb/video/live/#id=2168412441

Yeah, I saw that, about 10 seconds of action. The USST put that on their facebook page a while ago. It's pathetic how little we can see from a world cup in the US. Instead, we can wait till Sunday for NBC to air about 10 racers. Sounds awesome.

Here's the entire Canadian television broadcast (1:45) of today's (Friday) women's downhill from Lake Louise.  Another downhill tomorrow followed by Super G on Sunday.

Lindsey Vonn came out of the 22nd start position to crush the field by almost 2 seconds.  Unbelievable.

 

Here's the winning run.

Was at Beaver Ceek yesterday and skied over to the finish of the DH and was fortunate enough to get there and see Bodie's run, actually watched it on the large screen at the finish and saw him come over the last lip and into the finish. He knew he had a great run, he gave the fist pump to the crowd, everybody went wild.

Here's the recorded full Canadian television broadcast of today's (Saturday) second women's downhill from Lake Louise.  In the season opening race yesterday, Lindsey Vonn set a record for largest winning margin ever in a women's downhill.  Will she double today???

And Vonn does it again today with another staggering winning margin of almost 1.7 seconds.

Many thanks exracer, I just watched both of today's races!  Coverage was pretty good & it played better than any of the races I paid for on Universal last year.  I am pretty stoked with this Canadian link & hope it will work for more of this seasons races.

 

You made my day!

I hope you all saw the SL race today. Nolan Kasper has asserted himself as the best SL skier in the USA hands down. Just an amazing athlete who, despite hip surgery 3 months ago, being hospitalized 2 days ago for a flu type sickness, AND having this be his first start of the season, finished 4th. As a good friend of him I am quite proud, as a fan of american ski racing I am quite excited for this season and to see the sort of damage we can do in Europe!

I watched the live feed from the edge of my seat this morning thanks to the eurosport link.  Great performance by Kasper, should be interesting when he is at the top of his game.

 

For the first time in a long time it is nice to see that the US has the depth to score, podium & even win anywhere, anytime & in any event.  Kudos to Bode, Ted, Nolan, Lindsey, Julia & Mikaela for some astonishing results in the past few weeks.  There are quite a few other US racers who are on the verge of spreading their wings this season too.

 

Props to Svindal & Kostelic & it is great to see Hirscher back on his game as well!

 

Thanks,

JF

Nolan's been great since the last half of last year (ok all of last year, he won the Europa Cup SL title!). Great person too. Still, Brandenberg has been faster all year (handily won 2 NorAms in the last couple weeks over a world-class field), he just needs to get to the bottom. I'll be more excited for WC SL when they get onto a difficult hill. With Colorado snow and a flat hill, it's hard to take too much from Beaver Creek SL (and to some extent, GS).

 

Still, a great day, and a great race. Ivo showing himself to be ready for the meat of the season (especially in SL), Hirscher skiing well coming off injury, and the Americans skiing well, it's going to be a great next couple months.
