At our local hill we have racing tracks of the length of 20-30 sec. This weekend I was at a national event and the SL track measured 40sec. It was way more tiring and most of the guys that crashed did so at the very end of the track. Ok, it was also the most demanding with pure ice etc. but still it may have been the cause of being tired.
So my Q is, how much do WC racers adjust their technique at the start of the course to save themselves for later on the track and how much do they fight total fatique at the end. For example standing up straight insted of being in a tuck or ILE insted of staying low etc. Any guesses? And how about you?
