Thanks, I really enjoyed that.

Body positions look great, lots of leg bend to give spring, really attacking turns and pole plants. Very smooth, totally controlled -- no excessive height and skis right across the mountain before the turn. The small bumps looked very elegant, but it's clear that the bigger bumps in the chute were harder work - the guys must be fit! What's not to like? (My amateur reaction).
