Great performance , tecnica design is outstanding
The Cyclic is now in its 4th season with the only change being the top sheet graphics each year. No reason to change this ski, it is nearly flawless. Wider tip with rocker, camber, and tail rocker...

This is my home resort so I admit, I'm biased. But, I have been skiing seriously at Sunrise since 2009. It's located in the White Mountains of eastern Arizona. The main towns in the area are...
The mountain was almost lost a few years back, but the rally was made and it seems on solid ground. A very relaxed atmosphere and a nice lodge. Excellent crowded weekend escape from Sunday...

He's got a point... didn't think of it...
I'm not as precise or nice though :) but you can still tell the inside foot is pulled back from shuffling forward which at that lean angle should've been a little more... most weight is on the outside ski, which is bent - could've been more but all I lift for working out is beer cases
That pulling back keeps the hips forward which transfers all the way to the tip of the outside ski, as you can see.
If I pushed the outside ski forward instead, I would loose that bend in the tip and it wouldn't come around anymore. At that commitment, probably would have lost the grip... and I'm not that good with balancing on the inside ski...
That was my stiff boot, which I couldn't probably bend much but not for lack of trying though. They're adjusted for a good forward stance though, which I know for a fact I use and lever to keep the ski level (well, more or less)... what you do is dig the heels in and squeeze the heck out of that ball A-man was talking about. My squeezing there is not good enough - it seems the inside ski tip did grab a little bit more than it should've...

And here's me as a negative example this time, few years ago, on the left, compared to JFB on the right.
First, second photo: I had let my inside ski get ahead while JF does not.
But, perhaps, most telling are the last two, at the top of the turn: I had clearly let my inside foot shuffle forward quite a ways, while JS is clearly pulling it back, strongly in fact.
this is what tends to happen if you don't pay attention to it - even one inch makes a difference. As a result, I am blocked and do you see in the last photo the ensuing hip dump? I'm also way back, while he is free and open to tip the skis on edge properly. He looks back but that's just for an irrelevant instant, soon he'll be as in frames 1 and 2: forward where it matters, while I don't stand a chance.

If Mark could find more early morning warm up runs from the best GS skiers in the world, it would be awesome to have a collection - it's great to watch such relaxed skiing.
Hey - for a second there I thought you were trying to tell us your real name was Ted and you're a rabbit!
Notice how much extension of the old inside leg is happening before edge angle neutral in these turns. Why isn't he retracting? Blasphemy!
Well he obviously isn't that good of a skier. Does anyone know who this Ted guy is? Hopefully he'll find this forum and take some time to learn how to ski!
I like that. It describes the canadian race coaching to a tee. The tech manual is 7 pages: we just go down the hill turning left and right and we ask the kids to follow. Sometimes we use a moose.
By the way - have you read this guy's book? One of his prominent technique tips is :
See more technique tips from him here http://www.askicoach.com/wiki/Razie_Ski_Blog/Brilliant_Skiing_Every_Day_-_review or better yet, spend 5$ on his eBook!
I thought he was Ted the rabbit, but looks like some racer guy warming up his joints and muscles by taking it easy and going through a full range of motion, they do that sort of thing early morning... maybe he's an athlete who was paying attention to his race coaches and learned to avoid injuries...
edit/ps having said that, on a serious note, I fully agree with the idea of the video. Often we tend to get caught up in too many details of rotating this femur 5 degrees, bend that joint 10 degrees etc while the average brain can make up for a lot of that stuff... like just put the skis on edge, relax and balance on them... just like Ted! Totally!
