There are some notions around that kids who ski too well and have good technique are never going to be successful racers because they are over techniqued.
All I can say about that is notion is, it's up to the individual and his personality trait that makes a skier aggressive and an attacking racer, not his ability to ski well. The better you ski the more confidence you have to ski fast, not the other way around. Sometimes in the US we have strange ideas about what develops success.
In Austria all the racers learn to ski well and then they develop into champions, and they all "amazingly" have the same technique, so the must be over techniqued.
