I have been encouraging team members to watch videos of good skiers. There are lots of videos of full length race videos from Eurosport on Youtube. Go to youtube.com and search for “skiing vinnie”. The order that comes up is a bit random so I have collected the links for this season in the order that the races were run. Watch them and learn about ski racing.
Ruka Minitour (Kuusamo Finland)
Womens Skiathlon: A frightening display of fitness.
Mens Skiathlon: Great technique from Sundby.
Womens Relay: US ladies do well
Mens Relay: Norwegian dominance
Ladies Individual Freestyle: Unfortunately not one of Eurosports best produced videos – very few cameras and lots of shots of the crowd.
Men Individual Freestyle: Similar production to the Ladies Race
Sprints: US Podium
Tour de Ski
A series of races sort of like the Tour de France. Each stage carries over to the next and the final day has a killer climb up a Downhill Ski Slope. This started yesterday (New Years Day) so will be going on for the next week or so.
Stage 4 (Classic Sprints Oberstdorf, Germany): See the best skiers crash and burn! US Podium!
Stage 6 (Individual 5 Km Freestyle, Toblach Italy) Ladies: Another US Podium
Nove Mesto Czech Republic
Sprints -another US podium
Tour de Canada
Stage 1 Sprints (Gatineau) – another US podium
the rest of the races have not showed up on youtube yet.
