This French guy happened to be  a triple Olympic champion, winning the Downhill, Slalom and Giant Slalom at the 1968 Winter Olmypics. He also won  World Cup titles in 1967 and 1968.

Those random French guys can be pretty awesome sometimes.  But, he needs to keep his hands in front around those little trees.wink.gif

Uh yeah, that was attempt at humor; old enough that I can remember watching him win while we all hoisted brews to him. In fact, I was the proud owner of a pair of nice shiny red Heads with his name on them, now widely regarded as the worst ski ever made.
