I was recently watching clips of world cup racers and i noticed that especially on steep sections, but also notably on flat ones, as they transitioned from one turn to the next they let their inside hand from the previous turn float back almost to their buts so that their upper bodies countered their lower bodies. It does seem as if they are doing this purposefully and the only theory I have as to why they do it is that it makes it easier from them to bring their skiis underneath them because they are moving their upper body away from their lower body. Has anyone else noticed this or have an explanation as to why they do this?
