We'll see how Raich does in the SL - it seems to be the only discipline where he might be firing on all cylinders.
But watching the first run on WCSN this afternoon, it looks like the snow at Alta Badia was fairly unpredictable: note how the early racers on both runs laid down some of the best times, while folks who had to race later were quite slow, no matter how well they skied. It was less of a factor in run #2 (looking at the FIS result sheet), but it was still the case.
And don't forget: the World Cup has never held a SL at Alta Badia, so who knows how good or bad it'll be? We'll see if Ligety's rhythm is back, if Bode has truly dialed in his SL boards, and if Cochrane and Rothrock can pull off some magic.
