Man, I felt like I was going to that the other day at Cannon (coincidence?) ... i woulda gone down for sure if my ski came off. (maybe bode should switch to look bindings )

thanks for the video

I think Tanner can shut up now

Tanner hall should have to carry Bodes skis...

This little POS should have to be Bode's ski B*tch for the rest of the season! I just read about that comment he made....

Often when Cadillac wins a Touring Car race I think about how they must have the highest performance cars on the road.

Wait, no I don't. Thats obviously bogus logic.

Looks like he hit a rut coming off that jump. If that isn't the best ad I've ever seen for avoiding prerelease, I don't know what is.

My favorite part - Bode goes into a tuck with one ski on.

That's my boy hahahaha!!!!

Even us Canadians in the Great White North think Bode ROCKS!!!

What I found interesting on *both* lists was how few Lange boots there were. I don't wear Langes anymore but my vague impression was that they were still the top race boot. Obviously I'm outdated.

And not one single Technica. I guess I'll have to buy new boots. I'm not on the hot stuff anymore.

Remember that Lange and Rossignol are the same boot on the WC.

Really??

I had no idea.

But off-the-rack models are not related?

I had no clue there was any relationship at all between Lange and Rossi. Where have *I* been? :

Looks like Atomic is a guy thing.

And I sure love my SX11Ms!

Get to try next years skis Tuesday and Atomics are on the top of my list.

Don't race anymore but will try some race skis just for kicks. The SX11 type ski suits my needs better than racing skis.
