Bump

 

It looks like the auction ends tomorrow. While the current bid is out of my affordable price range at $2200, it may still be of interest to some Bears.

 

Vonn says she won a WC DH wearing this suit so that should add to it's value.

SOLD for $2,500. eek.gif

That was puzzling. There was a previous bid of $2500 and another different bid of $2500 in the last hour so the previous bid wins but it was obvious for a whole hour that another bid of $2500.01 would have got the suit barring another sniper which never happened.

How often do racers like Lindsey / Bode / et al get new suits anyway?  Do they wear one until they destroy it through crashes / hitting gates / etc. or do they get a different one for each race?

The top speed skiers like Bode, Lindsey and Julia get a new one every race. The porosity of of the suit is right on the edge of the limit and when they are used they stretch out ever so slightly and increases the porosity slightly creating more drag. It may only change things by a few hundreths or a tenth, but that is also the margin of victory in many cases. Their old suits often get passed down the chain to B or development teamers.
