Here is something that I think will be of intrerest to some of you. I put a GPS inside the speedsuit at the back of my boot and got some interesting data to analyze. The run in question was the first run of a two run SG Masters race. I was on my new 210cm Rossignol SG skis. Did not do to well in the first run but fell in the second after trying too hard.
The course was flat with ridges at the top section. At the steep it was solid ice WC style. It was at the end of the steep where I reached my top speed of 90 km/h (55 Mph) and the flat section was tricky due to a ridge, high speed and tricky gates. At the end there was a drop before the finishing area.
The darker the color of the track the slower the speed. You can see that its dark red at the ends and yellow in the middle. Red color in the yellow line show where I lose speed. At the top section there is a ridge that probably slowed me down but at the beginning of the steep I slammed on the brakes. The effect is drastic and thats where I lost any chanse of getting a good time. In the second race I did not brake at the top of the steep but crashed on the second gate to the left and slid down the whole steep crashing through the long gate on my way down. My GPS showed 67 km/h at the time of my crash. Did not hurt myself which was good.
Here is the track:
