Whistler Oly Men's Super-G etc full race tape... I know this is old 'news'

But 'tis the best ski race footage I've ever seen and it kept me up wayy late.

NO commercials. NO cuts or shortening of the field to commercial convenience. 

NO lame-ass, inane commentators who are a step behind the play when they are not talking about last decades capers ' when they could have been great '.

Just top to bottom in HD. The quiet loading zone and start-hut focus. The sound of air or skis...and a bit of ambient local-colour sound-scape, ( and that damn helicopter which did not have a clue who it was looking for ). If every ski race was covered so well ski racing would have a larger audience.

And a couple of kick-ass race courses - even if the women's  was lumpy- and high g-force in Frog Bank - see racer #1.... AND the men's Super-G ... what a great production when the net-work BS is reduced to a camera crew.

cut and paste - women's DH first and men's SG below.

Works here.

Let's hope it's not only in Canada; that would be a pity.

Sorry guys - when I tested the link it worked for me in Canada... too bad - this is real ski-racing crack.

A pity as that is some of the best footage I've seen.

Wow, thanks for the link, that's fantastic. I had no idea these were available. I'm pretty surprised, given how tight a reign the IOC keeps on Olympic footage, not just during, but also after events. I really think that everyone should be able to access this sort of stuff for years to come.
