When you win a lot, you don’t learn much. With my ups and downs, it’s a lot of learning.” (Tina Maze)

GS line choice


One simplest way to tell whether a racing team is trained professionally is to look at their racers’ pre-race warm-up routine. Given the fact that a fraction of a second matters in ski racing, whether athletes seriously and properly warm up before a race could substantially influence their eventual ranking.

High-level racing teams (e.g., USST) obviously always do warm-ups. If your team doesn’t have a warm-up routine, do it yourself. If people who don’t do warm-ups laugh at you, don’t be bothered. Keep warming up and let the clock speak after your run.

We consider warm-up as a tactic used by racers paying attention to every tiny detail in a race.
