Ted Ligety wins his third GS in a row! It all started at Beaver Creek.

It was amazing how on the Beaver Creek course almost every top racer gave up on "skivoting" because it's slow. Also, the perfect PMTS transitions were obvious. Flex and relax the long outside leg and then retract the leg, then tip and bend it to the little toe edge side, and continue. Continue flexing the inside leg to set up the stance side of the body, with counter balance and a stretched outside leg. Increase your counter acting to hold the edge, until the next release brings the whole process back, to start it again for the other side. Can't be more simple than that.
