You may not agree with his all out strategy, but he always makes great theater. Amazing balance to stay in balance. Here is another one for the highlight reel:
Ditto...and the best part is, he's not done yet. I'm betting on him to win another race or two before the end of the season...but you better catch him this year, because if the FIS gets its way re the new equipment regs, bye bye Bode...
Can you elaborate for the less informed? Thanks in advance!
The FIS wants to ban Bode Miller... and kittens. It's an evil, evil plot led primarily by Europeans, and we all know that those Europeans cannot be trusted, especially when it comes to the welfare of kittens.
FIS (governing body of ski racing) wants to change the turn radius of GS skis from ~27m to ~40m for next season. FIS claims this is in the interests of safety; the athletes and everybody else claim this is insane.
Umm, I am of the opinion that making skis crappier and less responsive will favor better, stronger, and more skilled skiers. In other words, people that sometimes get behind or bounced then make fantastic saves will kick ass. How is that bad for Bode'?
Dont forget he is the one that introduced shaped skis to racing. So going to a ski that is nearly straight may not be his bag baby....he is also very particular about his gear.
Yes, but are they taking their kittens with them?
FWIW, isn't he (and everyone else) skiing downhill and super G on (mostly) straight skis anyway?
I'd love to see Ligety try to rip a celebration golden circle on a 35 m ski.
Ya, I know he could probably still do it on whatever SL ends up at..
