Bode is not from the traditional mold.

Plenty of racers and competitors go out before the race. They know what they are capable and what works for them. I have to think that since he came of last year as the overall champ of the World Cup he knows what it takes for him.

Also remember that these guys know the course since they've skied it in the past. Some guys take every minute granted to inspect the course, many don't.

As for testing skis, I leave that to him. He knows skis and since he has skied on the same ones and they smoked for him, I trust his judgement.

I don't think I gave him a complete pass. I wouldn't try to get into his head.
