That is awesome!  Jon is such a talented skier, and I hope he enjoys his first taste of the gate racing big league!

Excuse me..

This is racing.

In all forms of racing there is only one standard for good form.

The fastest time.

Everybody else is wrong.

 

Conditioning and probably juice play an incredible role in making 3G turns at 90 mph.

When he is strong and focused Body is incredible.

His alinement issues are mental.

Will start bib 53.  What he has done this last year is very impressive.  Did not think he would make it onto the Swedish GS team.  Both the US and CBC networks will show the GS tomorrow.

Ligety shredded the field.  The gap between 1st and second was bigger than the time between 2nd and 8th. Second straight WC GS victory.

 

Olsson DNF run 1.

Olsson went out in the last few gates. His splits put him in the hunt for a second run, though. He is way ahead of where anyone (including himself) predicted he'd be at this point. He's focused and working hard. Been a great story to follow.

Sorry----"Ligety shredded the field" stated two posts up translates to Ted (the shred) Ligety of the US  won the race by a considerable margin.

Jon said in an interview after that he was extremely tired in his legs and thats why he could not handle it. Seems his technique is getting pretty good, but his legs are not in the same condition as his competitors yet. Judging from leg-size he does not have enough strength compared to many others.
