    Well you are the exception, you are a freakin bullet



    I was shocked to see how far down you landed after the kicker in your race with MrMagic. It looks like you landed on the bumps.

    The left line was faster. Aside from the curve in the trail, the bumps were smaller with much shallower troughs in both the top and bottom sections. The thing that I found kind of odd is that there was no defined finish line...

    I'll be totally honest here, i was upset for a while yesterday cause i thought i crashed after the spot they originally deemed the finish line. I bitched to Jeff for a while. Sorry bro. i just got caught up in the wrong attitude.

    but then i remembered what jarrod kept telling us. this was for fun and anyone taking it too seriously was going to be DQ'd.

    very true, thu' that left side kicker shot you way way out, i thought it was a harder landing than the right side kicker

    Good stuff!

    But, FIS rules are that the leg should be held together during the turns. Nigel the rippin tele guy had great turns; trying to compare free heel to lock heel turns is nite and day.

    Agreed! The left side kicker luanched you out while the right side was more up. I much prefered the right side kicker, but I was not able to get down the right side clean in any of my practice runs. There was one really deep trough with a nasty wall that kept knocking me on my butt. Then again on my second run heads up with MrMagic I crossed my tips and feel around the 2nd or 3rd bump from the top

    They were. The left skier's right was deep, but more consistent. Like I said, there was no faking it up there.

    Well said!

    I really thought your and madskier's heat was one of the most enjoyable of the early duels. Randi's vid captured it well. You guys were neck and neck and hit the kicker at the same time. You should be proud that you did so well against such a good skier as Jeff. Two years ago you wouldn't have even thought about skiing bumps like that, not to mention taking air in the middle of it! Nice job B!

    A finish line would have helped. When I heard Pat fell, we weren't sure whether he crossed the finish yet (I didn't see it live). From the video it looks like he fell short of that flat slushy area where most of us were stopping so I think that ruling was fair.

    I couldnt agree more. Like i said, i was upset for a while but my competitive side had kicked in and i wasnt really dealing with it rationally.

    It was so much fun. the only downside for me is dealing with my knee. I just hope it gets to the point where i can ski friday. Right now, i think thursday and friday is too much to ask of it.

    Thanks! It was a lot of fun. I was happy that I did as good as I did against Jeff, someone who I consider a much better skier than me. I wish the video showed a bit more of our run after the kickers...
