Moe (Tommy) vs. Moe (Megan Gerety)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just thought I'd post this photo I took a couple of days ago. Jackson Hole held an early-season ski camp this past week and the camp always closes with a side-by-side NASTAR race for the campers.

Tommy Moe and his wife, former US Team Downhiller Megan Gerety, are coaches in the camp and this is a photo of the two of them racing each other:



Just for the record, Mrs. Moe beat Mr. Moe by eight hundredths of a second.

She full-on smoked him in this early portion of the course but he came back and almost beat her at the finish.

(P.S. it's a little hard to say if she really was faster, though, because the course crew never really got a good fix on which course was faster)

Since he's not used to all those turns and she is, could well be she'd have a better time than he.

They were both speed skiers, but since she was on the team years after he left, I'd imagine she got a little more coaching on modern technique. Tommy could have been cruising there, having a little fun until he found out Megan wanted to RACE. Nothing against Tommy, but Megan's a hell of a skier.

Thanks for the picture.
