A couple of weeks ago, I was watching the women's GS from Bormio. What was interesting was the way that they would ski straight at the gate, then redirect (twist) the skis before they set the edges, sometimes using UPPER BODY ROTATION to start the turn. And it wasn't just one or two, they all did it, in just about the same spots. It seemed like the fastest racers were simply more skilled in carving immediately after setting the edges. I'm used to seeing this redirection in slalom, but is this now common in GS also?
