Edge ANGLE???? 90 degrees!

Eberharter retired, so Daron is #1 in downhill.
Bode is #1 in GS, and a threat in the overall.
Erik is healthy again, and hopefully back on track.

I pity the Austrians.

I am sure the Austrians appreciate your pity Mike! With such a shallow field to chose from, Erik's recovery must have them quaking in their collective clogs!

That's the first thing I noticed too Bonni. Herman M. will be there Mike. There are 3 things I would like to do in Skiing, one is to see a WC race in person.

Angles? Was I supposed to be looking at his SKIS?????

He's HOT!!! I'm amazed he can ski so fast - you think he'd melt the snow!

That pity was more like nationalistic pride in the depth of our team. We have a lot of good things happening.

Kjus and Aamodt will be back, and hopefully Ivica as well. Should be an interesting season.

Word from Norway is that Aamodt's ankle is now feeling strong. Depending on the conditions in Soelden he may not start and hold off until speed events in Lake Louise in November. Aamodt is concerned that he will not be able to trust his right leg when conditions are rough and he knows that a cautioius approach will put him way back. He hinted that being in the 40ies may be acceptable at the fisrt part of the season. As for the US, I am looking to see Bryon Friedman take another giant step forward. Bode will be strong no doubt. Should be a fun season.

Hey RG,

Clean Out your mailbox-looks likes it will be time to make some turns at Loveland next week. Definitely will avoid the weekend crowds.

I saw Jimmy Cochran win at Nationals (GS and SL), and from what I hear he will be one to watch in upcoming seasons. While Bode didn't bring his A-game to Nationals, Jimmy really impressed me. The kid is really good.

If Erik comes back to the form he had at the beginning of last season, he is a serious threat in GS. A couple bad races ended his season, but he was absolutely smoking before he blew the knee. The Austrians would be nuts to discount him.

Great find, Slider! Ullr--why on earth would you be wanting to watch a World Cup race if you were in that gondola with Kari Traa? (Not that she'd likely have it any other way, of course....)

And Slider--what are the other two things?

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

The other 2. Heliskiing and a European ski vacation. I think the WC race with Kari Traa would be the best out of 3.

And he's still skiing very, very fast. He qualified for the last U.S. quota slot in Sölden's upcoming GS race, outclassing the others vying for the spot. Furthermore, he wasn't far behind Bode, Daron and Erik.

Erik should be in fine shape this year, provided his knee holds up. He has an incredible feel for the snow and knows how to adapt to almost any snow surface (thank you, pro ski racing!). Nordica should be giving him some sick skis (they used to be Aamodt's sponsor), and he should be able to give Bode and Maier a run for their money in GS, and possibly in SG.

"Perfect Curves." Wasn't that the name of a group of ski chicks?
