    Fantastic video. Not sure any athletes inspire more awe in me than downhillers. Unbelievable athleticism + guts.

    Steve is one of 7 US Men in the field, including Bode Miller.

    Earlier, at 11am MST, is the Womens SG. 'Watch' it at:

    Stacey Cook in windy conditions.

    Great video! Now I'm getting psyched to get the boards out and hit the slopes.

    Very nice video. Always good to hear of other athletes that enjoy carving it up on the water going around those 6 buoys!

    Lindsey third in today's SuperG. Nyman is in a good place with his skiing. Could do really well in the DH.

    Men's SG postponed today. Nyman spent a few hours after the cancellation taking laps in the terrain park with the local kids who had been slated to slip the course. Pretty cool!
  • jimbrakejimbrake Posts: 1,342 Mega Baller
    @JohnN - how's it going? Are you there watching the events? Wish I was.
    "...all of the basic fun banter"

    Good to hear from you @jimbrake . We made the move to the mtns so the kids could train at Vail. The World Championships are a huge deal up here, tons of people from all over, live music every day, lots of work for locals and the 2200 volunteers. We've been watching events from up close - I'm one of the dye crew (painting the blue lines on the courses) for the event, and the kids have been on the slip crew (60+mph slipping for some of them on the DH course). The coolest thing that you don't get on tv is the sound the WC downhillers make when they go by - sounds like a freight train passing.
  • jimbrakejimbrake Posts: 1,342 Mega Baller
    Awesome @johnN - before the downhill is run, I think you should write "BOS" on the course somewhere so we can see it on Universal Sports/NBC.

    So are the kids still water skiing in the summers or do they spend all their time training at Hood and in Chile or NZ?

    Funny how things happen sometimes. Was flipping through facebook and saw marcus' video post about Nyman so I watched it.

    Changed the channel on the tv after watching the vid, and who's at the starting gate? Steven Nyman. Balls out run he had, bode-esqe. just bit off a bit too much at times in his run.

    What's all this crap about winter? I'm flying home tomorrow and putting the plugs back in the Nautique! Now, it would be nice if I could get the physical therapist to clear me to ski, but I'll just go easy. Easy-ish
    That is an awesome video though. Gutsy stuff
  • JohnNJohnN Posts: 122 Baller
    Catching up on a day off of races (for me). @jimbrake the kids are still psyched to waterski, but the summer camps are becoming more important. I know they'll have a chunk at Mt Bachelor, and maybe a little overseas. Saw your message about painting BOS a little too late - would have been good :-). Talk about a small world - after the snow talk on this thread who do I get introduced to Saturday at the end of the day but @MarcusBrown, skiing with a buddy of mine.

    Congratulations @JohnN great skiing. Heading to PC on the 21st. Good luck the rest of the season.
