First Slalom of the year Hirscher on every podium so far.

Marcel Hirscher
Great skiing.

 Hirscher 2nd today in Levi, by 1 tenth of a second, wins second run. Not often recognized, but a critical ability in a racer. This holding or pulling of the inside foot back, is common with the Austrians. It keeps his hips in a centered, forward driving position. It also helps to keep the outside ski slicing cleanly. When ever you see that inside foot too far forward, it means the skier is slowing, looking for speed control, rather than acceleration..
