As a former World Cup and Olympic Racer, I want to share the ins and outs of World Cup Ski Racing, with expert guests to discuss current issues and the breaking stories throughout the season. If you have any burning questions drop me a message and we will try and answer them during an episode.
S3.E26 Season Review
With the World Cup season over, we look back at the highs and lows of an eventful season? From athletes and nations that impressed to under performers, what we would do if in charge of FIS plus more general World Cup funny moments!
Thanks for listening, if you have enjoyed what we have put out this season, lets us know and leave a review from where you download the pod!
S3.E25 Lenzerheide Finals
The boys are back, to review a strange end to the season, speed races all cancelled, Pinturault and Vlhova pick up the Big Globe. Gut-Behrami strangely skis out amidst rumours of safety or protest. With a shoutout to the Brits with Guest and Major finishing the season on a high.
S3.E24 Odermatt On The Charge & Vlhova Recovery
Charlie Raposo joins Ed and Marcel, as we look back at Pinturault's tricky weekend which has let Odermatt take the lead in the GS standings and in with a good shot at the Overall title. Whilst Vlhova puts herself back in the driving seat after taking a win plus the recovery of the season to score big in the chase for the Womens Overall.
S3. E23. Saalbach, Jasna And Shiffrin
What a great weekend of racing, from Odermatt's domination of the SG to Shiffrin's winning Slalom run to Shiffrin's questions of the Slovakian course crews supposed delaying tactics!
What did you guys think? Legit delay or underhand tactics??
Share far and wide!
S3. E22 Brutal Bansko And Injuries In Italy
Crammed a lot onto this pod! We chatted about Bansko and how blaming ski manufacturers is creeping into the racers narrative, plus we have to talk about injuries again after 2 horrendous crashes for the ladies in Val di Fassa for the Ladies, which lead us back to the question of how safe ski racing is and what can be done...
Let us know what you think and give us a share and like!
S3.E21. Reverse The Top 15??? Cortina Round Up
The tech events brought the champs to a close. We cover the unorthodox decision FIS took to only reverse the top 15 on the second run! Liensberger's crushing slalom win, a surprise mens GS podium and the tightest of margins for Lara Gut-Behrami to take another gold.
With a turbulent champs coming to an end we talk through our highs and lows, as well as some of yours, plus a look to the next World Cups which are just around the corner.
Thank got these guys are back for a third season. The sport has been lacking a podcast analysing the WC from week to week. Funny guys and very knowledgeable. Well worth a listen
A great listen!
It’s some feat when you listen to a podcast and get a real sense of exactly what racing happened without seeing a second! Super informative, inquisitive discussions about the racing hot topics and done in such a fun way that it’s difficult not to smile and want to hear more. A must listen for any ski racing fan!
As someone who has recently started following ski racing, this podcast is an excellent listen. The guys knowledge is superb and the podcast is an easy listen. In a niche sport where content is hard to find, I would highly recommend this podcast to anyone interested in ski racing.
