Good runs make it look easy, this segment makes you realize the speed being carried

Nice.  Bump technique discussions rarely end well here.  Here we go!

I think the problem comes from these preformed zipper lines and the speed that is created in them. There is very little "free" in freestyle. All are doing the same jumps and it comes down to speed and air.

They are pretty beefy skis.

I preferred the head to head format that we used in the 80's.

If they can't even get former competitors to watch, they don't have a chance with joe nascar.

Always see video of the best. Good to see the reality of the danger and the seriousness of potential injury. Most did not crash into the front of the bump but some appeared to have potential head injuries. Damn
