    I really like that viewing angle.
    To the top, that's some fine skiing.

    Most hackers on the hill these days have no clue the acceleration that can be generated from a well executed turn. Awesome viewing angle. Fun to watch...and yummy also.

    Yeah, that vid was sweet.

    On FB, when she commented about racing this weekend, somebody posted "Please don't take too many risks!" Her response: "My job is to take risks. My knee is 100%."

    BOOM.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Not a bad return...

    Too bad she is going to run out of events before she can retake the lead in the slalom standings.
    Aim for the chopping block. If you aim for the wood, you will have nothing. Aim past the wood, aim through the wood.

    she's not even 21 but already is #2 in total wins for a US women, wow. And the fact that she's not even 21 makes me feel dirty.

    She is so, so good. Smokes the field in her first race back. Unreal.

    Caught her second run on tv yesterday and the announcer said it perfectly. "It looks like she's running a different course than the other racers"...or something like that...but it was so true. This girl is unreal.

    Mikaela completed the season with only 5 Slalom races. However, her pure dominance was incredible.
    She won every slalom she entered by an average margin of 2.11 seconds! The closest being Crans Montana (.45 seconds) that looks to have been a relatively easy course since everyone was pretty fast (see margin from second to 3rd).
    The average margin between 2nd and 3rd is 1/9 of her winning margin. That is ridiculous.

    Performance Enhancing Drugs is the ONLY explanation. Either that or she is really a man.

    “When I ski, it’s like a song. I can hear the rhythm in my head, and when I start to ski that rhythm and I start to really link my turns together, all of a sudden there’s so much flow and power that I just can’t help but feel amazing.”
    —Mikaela Shiffrin

    I can imagine she heard the rhythm in her head during these runs...pure pendulum perfection...wow.
    Just amazing to watch that level of flowing dynamic balance on the feet.
