Marcel Hischer Magic, at Soelden, Austria, GS 1st run.

Marcel Hirscher
This clearly is the most exciting skier on the World Cup and he has the best chance to dominate slalom and GS in the future. He uses the flexing technique to release the turn, called "Retraction".

This is the future of skiing and the fastest way to the new edges. He also skis the straightest and most carved line of all the skiers. At 18, he was the World Junior Champion in slalom and GS. He also was top three on a world cup podium that year. Rarely if ever accomplished in ski racing.

Stop this video at the point where he is changing edges, you will see some phenomenal action.
