As I have started to return to racing. I have found that a lot has changed from 10 years ago when I was a high school student.
My biggest problem is the length and radius of the GS skis of today.
I am a short guy weighing in at 65kg (~145lbs) and have no problem laying down power over my 165 SL skis. I have started training on a friends pair of 2013 186cm Fischers with 27m radius and I am having trouble really getting the power to the skis like I can in SL. At the moment I have to scrub the really tight turns and pray I make the next gate.
If I am expected to race on at least 190's with 35m sidecut, what are some key tips to lay down the power to get the skis flex?
Also, what are some trends that changed over 10 years in the GS skiing technique?
I will say, training on the GS skis has improved my SL power and technique.
