are you asking about the arm swing?A question to all of you who follow and study WC racing.
What is the purpose of the multi outside hand pump thing? I understand dropping it quickly to transfer more pressure to the outside ski but lifting it to do a second one weems like it would reduce pressure on the ski. What All 3 racers who podiumed above did it to one extent or another but why?
Okay yeah, I see what you are seeing. Probably just a product of the bumpy, inconsistent double ruts in the soft snow.Look at the Ford video above. He passes the gate and it is like he is tapping his downhill pole on the snow again; it seems most noticeable on the steeper parts of the course.

Ford is such a solid skier, nice to see him on the podium again after a "not so great" first run !
