They should have cancelled the Slalom, so you could still try to have a race tomorrow. You can have a Slalom pretty much everywhere and we have too many Slaloms, the whole overall WC is heavily biased towards Slalom and GS specialists, they have way more races than the speed specialists.
Ain't that the truth, Ruth!Mayomaniac wrote:Yes, the team event kinda sucks.
Alpine Sking is such a brutal sport, the wear and tear and the injuries are just nasty.
Just look at the two downhill WCs, Feuz already had 8 knee surgeries and Stuhec 5 (all of them on her right knee an she's only 26 years old).

The wear and tear i just brutal, so many of the pros have bad knees or back problems and there are a ton of people who didn't make it because of injuries, I know a girl who used to be pretty good, but she had to deal with spinal disc problems in her lower back since her teens.
If we ignore combat sports and other sports that involve a ton of potential head trauma like American Football Alpine Skiing is probably the one sport that I wouldn't want my kids to take pursuit a career in, way too many injuries.
