Just how does SHE (we all know who we are talking about) keep winning?

Just how does SHE (we all know who we are talking about) keep winning?

April 23, 2019

Today Wendy and Shelley have a casual chit-chat with Mikaela Shiffrin's coach, Jeff Lackie.  Ever wonder how and what it takes to win and keep winning? Why the switch to speed? Who makes the decisions? What decisions are made? Does winning become boring? Does she really work that hard or is it just pure talent? We asked and now we know so could you know. 

Timing is everything…gaming the system

Timing is everything…gaming the system

April 10, 2019

Today Wendy and Shelley talk to expert timer Mike Walker (local - World Cup timer) about how athletes can gain the system to their advantage. They also ask what can right and wrong in timing (cough, cough Crans-Montana anyone?), what is timing, and how to time.  Wendy and Shelley also trade snippy remarks and Mike casually listens to two friends insult each other.  Correction:  In the pod we say Cortina - we meant Switzerland :( Boo on us, but still relevant info. Thanks for the understanding :)

Happy International Women's Day!   Shelley gives an in depth look at the course in Kvitfjell and Wendy gives us the low down on the overall results.  No one talks about the women's results in Russia but Shelley does get her hand bitten by an 8 week old puppy.

Crans Mon-what the? City Duals and FIS is broke

What happened to the timing in Crans Montana?  What happens when people gripe about double cross blocking? What happens when FIS says that they don't want to put on 2 cancelled GS races because they say they're broke?  We don't have the answer to all of these questions but we have an opinion on all of them!
