Nice Racing Pic. Analysis?

post #1 of 11

Nice shot of me racing in our Beer League Championship race at Wachusett Mt.  Fast guys/gals ran top to bottom in about 52-60 Seconds.  A REAL GS style race. :)

 

What do you see? (Besides a 44 yo man having a GREAT time!)  Our team finished the year 7th out of about 100 teams of 6.  :)

Nice length courses you run for beer league. From the photo its hard to tell exactly what is going on. But it looks really good. No snow spraying from under the skis and you seem to be trawelling along your edges. You have nice edge-angles and your upper body is nicely tilted forwards. Arms also in front, I like all of it. Maybe your inside leg could be tipped a bit more and maybe you are leasing a bit too much with your inside shoulder. Could be a result of squezing arroud the gate. Looks like a WC photo. How are you shaping up against the competition? More speed higher edge angles, hip closer to the snow, more angulationa and closer to the gate.

Can't tell much without the context of time....   Video, the fourth dimension. It's our friend.

Thanks Guys!  That course is the "League Championship" race aka "The Great Race" at Wachusett Mt in MA.  Our beer league regular course is about 30 seconds. There are about 100 teams in the league.  Top 30 teams make the championship race.   I skied OK for me that day.  I think I was #34 or so for combined times of about 180 people.  My personal team came in 7th (just off the top 6 "podium").  The league is pretty competitive with lots of Ex NCAA racers.  (Not me -  I was a wrestler :))) )

 

Good season.  No injuries.  Top 10 finish for our team. 

 

More Pix of other racers here. Some great shots!

At this point in the turn, I would like a little more counter and to get closer to the gate... also, the inside leg could tip more... But I'm a newbie... Looks good for my pay grade smile.gif

You got better treatment than Mikaela did here with her stills. I'd walk away and call it good. smile.gif Maybe the moderators can lock the thread for you before it devolves into death by a thousand cuts.

Pat,

 

1. You are skiing on your heels. Your entire body is behind your feet. Move your COM forward until you are on the balls of your feet.

2. Shins should be closer to parallel. They don't have to be in perfect alignment but this has too much A-Frame.

3. Hips should be inside the turn (a little). This would allow some angulation, leveling the shoulders.

4. Left knee is too straight. It should be flexed, applying pressure to the tongue of the boot. This would occur more naturally if you were on the balls of your feet.

 

I'm sure there more but, this is enough to work on for now.

  this.  try to get bring your hips forward as this is the most effective way to move the CoM. Otherwise you are going to be out of balance The balls of your feet may or may not work for you.  I personally prefer to have the weight spread across the foot while pressuring the cuff as I find this more stable.  YMMV

Yeah, I'm an idiot to not notice those... I know I said it was good for my pay grade, so I should probably work for free...
