Ligety Technical Comparison to Hirscher

You can already see what is going to happen here. Ted is still ahead at this on the course.
He loses counter balance, you can see it by where is head is and his upper torso angle relative to his hip. It's almost a straight line.
Hirscher is more upright with his torso. His inside hip is higher  as well.
Ted loses the race here, the next two turns; he is in saving mode, where Hirscher is attacking. A momentary lapse like this can be the difference between winning and coming second in a world cup race. These guys are the two best GS skiers in the world right now.
