"a little too outside ski focused..."
The last two racing pics i´ve seen are in this month´s issue of Powder mag.
Both Eric Schlopy and Daron Rahlves are at the apex of a GS turn.
Both have the inside ski off the snow,no weigth at all.
I´m not against New style-technique,but i do believe that we are getting a bit carried away.Trying to be more avant garde than top WCUP racers will get us nowhere IMHO.
I watch WCUP races in video (GS) and i swear i still see:
-Outside ski dominance
-Inside ski tip-lead,on some side shots you can clearly see the inside ski one boot lenght ahead.
-Hip-torso countering+angulation,go to www.skiracing.com,PLUS
section "France´s Covili...",the Bode Miller pic speaks for itself...
-Up unweighting:I know it´s sin,but believe me they still do it quite often!
All the above is generally treated in this forum as old,inefficient,dumb or worse.My problem is that i still see this fundamentals winning races,though they seem less obvious.Am i going blind!!!!?
This year i´m gonna get 84 days MINIMUM on the slopes,not teaching,not working just plain glorious FREE skiing and snowboarding.YES!!!!!!
