Sigh....Eberharter is my FAVORITE. (not only is he a major hottie [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img] ) but his style, and that of most of the Austrian skiiers, is one i try to emulate. there is something there that is just amazing, you can SEE the power in his (their) legs...like coiled springs ready to explode...but it is a very controlled power and the skiing is very smooth and controlled, but very POWERFULL. someday maybe ill get to Austria and study their tecqnique.
Glad hell be ok. he said something to the effect of "christmas will be much nicer without a ruptured cruciate ligament!" hear, hear. couldn't have said it better myself.
Hmmm, much controversy about his age. just read 33 somewhere, FIS website says birthday of 1979, and now I hear 35...
Gosh, LM, Blush, blush, blush. hard work but worth it for something i love so much. still, coming back after acl, Wish I had done all that BEFORE the fact, along with falling Techniques.
True, a fall happens so fast, hard to incorporate anything learned. It would have to be practiced over and over so that any correction would be ingrained, its hard to recall Vermont Ski Safteys list in the milliseconds it takes to do something horrible to your body. but still, important to know, and important to have said "holy trinity" to recover from crashes inevitable to racing and pushing envelopes freeskiing.
