Anyone read it? "coming out of 4 ball, I dropped my shoulder into the wake and almost ripped my head off".

Been there, done that...

    @Gloersen, no, not at 10:25 in my case. It was a bit later, in the afternoon, around 13:50...

    I felt like he was making excuses. I have never met CP but from what people say about him, he sounds like a really nice and great guy. Nevertheless he was saying things like "i was going to have the best season of my life but after that injury I sould not in any way been on a ski" and "when I did ski it was with insane pain". Im sure none of it is a lie, but idk it just sounded like excuses to me

    He was at my record the week after Masters - I could tell something wasN't right. He ran 4 @ 41 but was not the same skier he was in 2011. I hope he remains healthy this season.

    He's a great talent that should have more wins for his ability. I agree with livetoski.

    Was the pre-release from Reflex front binding or a velcro issue?

    Having suffered through neck nerve problems for years I would have to believe it impaired his performance. Anytime any of us are pushing up against the edge of our limits, everything has to be working. An injury like his would both reduce consistency and take buoys off the high scores. I've skied with Chris and had a ball -- hope he's back in the game this year!

    I'm curious what it is about Chris' style that makes it better for great conditions? I would argue that most styles are better suited for great conditions, but regardless of conditions you have to be the best skier to win. I would think his stacked strong stance on the ski should give him an advantage in most conditions.
