I blame Atomic... - Page 2

post #31 of 49

Atomic

Yeah obviously the equipment is important but even of more importance is the ENGINE

I think that in Bode's case it is the equipment, specifically the atheletic supporters that he has. They are putting too much pressure on him.

Edit: or not giving him enough support.

I hear he's been having this problem ever since that airline broke his cup.

It may not be the ski, but the last minute strategy changes cant be helping.

Maybe its the leadership at Atomic Worldcup Racing, not the gear.

The ski Bode used for the DH was a "new" cap construction "Atomic", according to Thomas Buergler, the Tech who prepares Bode's Atomic Skis. I'm using quotes here because it may have been a Salomon Worldcup DH model with an Atomic topskin.

If you don't believe it, see

Pictures of the cap construction ski on the feet of the racers are included.

It is no Salomon, almost all the WC Atomic's GS, & SL's have had cap construction for years.

And the reason Atomic would reskin a Salomon speed ski? Afterall Deneriaz & Walchofer were on standard sidewall laminate Atomic DH's and took 1 & 2.

So why would the new ski be a Salomon????? Atomic is only the winningest speedski in history. Oh because, Atomic bought Salomon?

If you think, as in your original post, Fischer or Volkl would have changed the outcome, for Daron or Bode, you are mistaken.

Atomic has probably the largest support network for all of the sponsored individuals. And that obviously has effect on the sales floor.

For that matter ... what was Bode on two years ago?

But of course, any ski named after you would be special to your heart right?

I don't care, I like things that suck.

I'm considering changing my signature back to the original,

"give me Rossignol or give me Head"

What do you think?
