Ligety's slalom not ready for the best yet!

Starting turns with leaning and rotation, doesn't set you up well for a hard, round, World Cup slalom turn. His hips are already back behind his boots. It means you have to save the turn late,  when you should be releasing. That makes for a hard edge set, which is slower.

Huge difference here, same turn, compared to Ligety, this is the winner, Kostelic. He is on the outside ski, already Counter balanced and countered. His hips are forward and over his boots.
