"Munch, munch, munch, munch"*
*The sound of SfDean happily and enthusiastically eating his words.
Bode Miller is ripping in DH despite having changed ski brands from Atomic (on which he had suddenly rocketed into good speed event results two years ago) to Head and despite having changed ski techs from the wizard he and Daron Rahlves inherited from Stephan Eberharter.
And what a cool competitor. Great looking run. Not phased by a course worker falling and sliding through the course and across his path ahead of him. And about 1:28 into the run he lands back on his heels after a short air time and immediately gets relaunched and keeps it together. Bode Miller has balance skills.http://video.sport1.at/index.php?view=2133
Nyman has a great looking run too, and it's pretty cool to see how pumped his is at the end as he sees he finished in (at that time) first place by .7http://video.sport1.at/index.php?view=2135
(For those of you who haven't signed up for it, sport1.at is the Austrian home for video streaming of WC race runs. They typically have the runs of the top 3 finishers, plus any other Austrians who finished top ten. It's free. Except to the extent that it makes you think that you could ski Birds of Prey like that. Then the medical bills could get expensive.)
I'm looking forward to tomorrow's results.
