Pretty amazing video, they look so effortless gliding through the gates in the tele shots, but upclose you can see how much effort is exerted. I'm not sure if I had the balls to do that even if I were a much better skier than I am.

You know, I was all prepared to concede, because I'm pretty sure there's no way I can take you in a fight, but then I remembered that I probably have some other advantages at my disposal, so I'm not going to worry about it just yet...

I particularly liked the slow-mo shot of his leg movement. Seeing the body articulate like that (as in other sports related videos using that camera technique) always impresses me....we move impressively on this planet. Of course, some more than others.

I could really do without the eye-ball cam.  And I don't mean POV.

I wish that my eyes could do that... (it also reminded me of Peter Gabriel in his video for "Sledgehammer")
