What the Universal Sports guys miss!

One of the things that is annoying about Lewis's commentary on Universal Sports (he was never much of a slalom skier) is he keeps saying that Hirscher is jumping out of the turns. This is absolutely the wrong message to send to young racers. Hirscher is retracting his legs, and doing it so fast, and has so much rebound, it looks like he leaves the ground at times to get forward. He isn't jumping, however he's retracting or sucking up his legs.

During this phase, he changes edges (very quickly) while his skis are light.

Very well said. We have the same views on this matter. I'm glad you shared about this.
