I say:Women we need you. Who wants a man's world with no women colleagues? I admit it's an academic argument for youse married guys. 😊

I am sure skimottaret agrees, lower Fis points equals harder to achieve, so that's probably why he doesn't understand it.

Jim, I know and respect skimottaret as a really strong skier. I wouldn't suggest that there is anything he doesn't understand about skiing.
It doesn't hold us as men back to have a pass rate for women that is 6% easier. I say again. Women need to be encouraged to go in for the Eurotest.
If we get a discount for age I'm now in a mind to take the deal.
Addd.
The point about the FIS point discount for women is a different one to the discount they get over the 0FIS time.
Looks like there's a double discount going on there.
Again. More the merrier.

Wait, I thought the women had it harder. Lower FIS point requirement = harder.

The confusing thing to me is that women have a tougher fis exemption, but an easier pass rate, doesn't seem to make sense.

But the In the actual eurotest (as opposed to the exemption) the margin is much larger for women, typically 2-3 seconds slower than men.

I was pointing out (as Jim says) it seems odd that girls get an extra 6% but have a tougher exemption limit.

 

I can only assume that FIS points are not comparable between men and women and they decided that the exemption for women should be lower at 85 points as opposed to 100 for men. 

 

Having coached some juniors around the 100 point level I would say that a typical 100 pointer man is technically better than a 100 pointer girl..  Perhaps it is down to loading and numbers of competitors? perhaps typical FIS races are easier to achieve sub 100 points for girls??
