Predictions league

Great to have the pod back with the season preview, gets the excitement for the season going for sure

How about in the predictions league that you can only pick the same skier a maximum number of times in the same discipline, say 3 races max so really have to think who is good where and make considered picks rather than say Shiffren, Odermatt or Kilde all the time?

Keep it going boys.

Cheers

Great ski racing podcast

Great podcast on WC skiing. Very insightful and entertaining. Nothing else like it that I have found. Really look forward to it each week. Thanks very much.

Love this pod!

I only wish that, after all these years, Ed Drake would learn to pronounce the skiers’ names correctly. It’s REALLY not that difficult :)
