Re: FIS Alpine Skiing Season 2017/2018

Sweden vs Austria so early :eek:

Shame that many top skiers don’t give a damn about this event, would make it at least a tad interesting. Really hoped Ted, Mikaela and Lindsey would go for Team USA, but even Norway is not bringing their best, so 2nd quarter will be a weak mess anyway.

If most don’t care about it in the inaugural edition, I only fear how bad it is going to get in the upcoming Olympics.

How did Hungary end up in team event? :help:
I guess if you're going to have 16 teams, you'll end up scraping the barrel to get there, but still. How about Croatia or Japan?

Croatia already declined the team event months ago when entering quotas. Same with Japan I think.

What a bad quarterfinal from Sweden vs Austria. After a promising start in the 1/8 final, 1/4 was a disaster.

Re: FIS Alpine Skiing Season 2017/2018

silver is a pleasant surprise for the austrians and well deserved in the end for ending the favourites in QF in some fashion. most successful alpine skiing nation at this olympics as well... :yeah:

Nevena Ignjatović is talking about winning a medal in 2022. :rolls:
I wonder if she's aware that AC will no longer be in the programme :eek:

Re: FIS Alpine Skiing Season 2017/2018

Olympics are over and there were a lot of surprises in Alpine Skiing.
I would mention Ledecka's gold in SuperG alongside with her gold in GS Snowboard parallel event. This was an amazing achievement. No one does it and I guess no one will do it in the future.
Mikaela and Marcel with no Slalom medals is also a big thing but both of them got the GS golds + the Alpine Combined medals. So, it was good for them.
Sweden rocked the Slalom. Frida and Andre did amazing jobs, grabbed the golds. Totally deserving golds as they have been on tour for so long without being the superstars of it.
Norway did great job too. Aksel, Kjetil did the best they could. Ragnhild Mowinckel was the best surprise of team Norway. The biggest disappointment was Henrik in slalom (although he won a medal in GS), as he could have won that gold too.
French men team come strong in Alpine Combined and GS. Rock solid performances by most of them. They were a bit unlucky at some points. Women's team nowhere close to their best and this is something that french need to discuss. You cannot relay only in Tessa to carry the team. There is a huge problem in the French team and it will continue unless they get rid of these extremely old gentlemen who run the sport.
Germany with no medal and I feel really sorry for Vicky. Her 1st runs these season have been so up and down. But you have to feel for Dressen too. He had his chances in DH.
Austria was in good place after taking home some medals (you can't always win everything) as well as Switzerland. Rock solid performances by Michelle Gisin and Wendy Holdener. Ramon did great job as well and I feel the Team Gold is a thing to count on for the next years.
Slovenia disappointed me. No Tina, no Ilka and of course no medal chance here though they could have done something in ladies GS. Biggest unlucky person was Zan for me. This guy needs to win a WC race.
USA counting on Vonn & Shiffrin was in a good place. Italy relied on Goggia to save the day.

Vion, Saguez and Sechaud aren't so old. It's just that Vion and Saguez bought Sechaud's plan instead of Melquiond's one (Alphand's cousin). And on girl's side, contrary to what they hope, there is no big hopes of future success. That's why they try to develop night parallel events serie "Ladies night tour" in order to create a new move on young people. But it will take time in order to find new talents. During the same time, number of spots on WC circuit is diminishing year after year.
Baud is only good at team event
Noens can come back, but she's 30 years old now
Worley is already 29 years old
Barioz, Fraisse Sombet and Barthet are not competitive anymore
Speed girls are most of the time out of top 20

Crans Montana held a EC SG three days before the WC one :lol: Some WC skiers participated including Weirather, who was 3rd. Flury won.

Team event is even more useless than AC, hope they'll get rid of it soon enough.

my problem? all of the slopes have not been worthy even in the slighest, just look how much tougher a mere WC race back in europe appears to be in comparison. it's just ridiculous to think olympic medals in alpine skiing count for shit as long as being held on pussy slopes because the geography isn't suitable to provide better, in fact it's even worse than in tennis. :lol:

The race today is questionable. The track is in pretty bad conditions.

in fact the track is just standard for WC races these days. it's tricky, demanding and urges for either adaption/different set ups to meet the requirement for having a shot at the podium. sounds legit to me tbh, and thinking of the sorcery that have been the tracks at the olympics where the greatest challenge was being lucky with head/tail winds or wind guts at technical events... :lol:

I don't know what the hell are you talking about?

We have Val D'Isere, Zagreb, Flachau :)lol:), Semmering :)rolls:), Maribor when it's not icy and I could go on, especially on the women's side and all those were much easier that Yongpyong.

St Moritz itself was much more laughable in both GS and SL than the Olympics :shrug: Vancouver tracks were also easier than those, not to mention the hilariously bad San Sicario :tape:
