I was very nervous at the first slalom run but it went just fine. The second run I pushed all that I could and I felt totally forward and in control until I suddenly without warning was riding with the inner feet high up in the air and weight far far back. It all went well and I improved the time despite the mishap. Dunno what happened, if you know please tell me.
For the GS i felt totally relaxed about the course, but very nervous about performing. There was no real problems either run but I felt I could improve quite a bit in the steep open turns.
Here's the deal, I'm using my B5i and I've decided to keep them for the 3 remaining local races I can attend. The courses are set for non adult racers, so they are rounder than what a >27 ski could perform well in.
My problem is when it gets steep and I want to do a longer radius turn. If I edge less, it's difficult to really get the edge to stick on the ice. If I edge more (this is at a higher speed section) then I'll do a quite high g short turn, and I'm unsure of how to do that the best way. I feel that to deal with the force I either need to use both legs, or going very low with an almost straight outer leg.
What's the best way to deal with that kind of turn using the current setup?
I don't want to be too long-winded so I hope this covers my question. I'll try to explain again if my english is bad.
