 “If they want to disqualify me after I win Soelden and Val d’Isere on these things, they can go ahead,” Miller said. “I don’t race for results anyway. I think I’ve mentioned that before. Live free or die.”

 

I look forward to seeing him do it. roflmao.gif

Probably the funniest thing I've read in a while. "“The skis were kind of hidden away behind a bunch of junk – trophies and crap,”. Bahahaha.

That was my favorite line too.  So was the name Frank Konia for the author. 

 

 

But this line was pretty good too:

Quote:
A source close to Miller said the company offered to build hundreds of new race skis for him and supply a full-time ski technician to travel the World Cup and tune Miller’s skis, but that Miller, true to his reputation for stubbornness, said that he preferred to use the originals. The official announcement about of the partnership is scheduled for later today, April Fools’ Day, the source said.

Hmm April fools perhaps?

 

If this is true......I fear for his safety.  He is a lot stronger, heavier and more skilled than when he was younger, he'll probably snap those skis in half.

 

And Head is okay with this?   He is still listed as a Head team member.

It's a goof, and a good one, too....

On another note Mancuso has signed with Head.  That is not a joke.

I kinda always figured Mancuso and Head would be a natural fit... she always performs well in the big events, she rarely chokes... this is gonna be great, lots of gag possibilities.

Not just Super Jules. Beat Feuz is on board. Direct Swiss replacement for Didier Cuche? Jeeze, that's some team.

 

Aksel will be stoked if it means he can see more of Jules, but is there room on the same team for her and Ms. Kildow?

"Beat Feuz", "Head", and "rarely chokes" does not have the same appeal to me as Jules (the only legit racer to be a Lange Girl).

Yup: she was racing at U.S. Nationals in a pair of Head race boots (still on her curent Völkl skis - guess the Lange contract expired sooner) and the questions started apace. The press release soon followed.

 

Another equipment jump: Jean-Baptiste Grange will be on Fischer skis/boots/bindings next season. That is, when he returns from knee surgery, taking place this week and with a six-month recovery estimate.
