Whenever I see this guy I detect unprepared slacker.
Next, the Sloped whatever. Canadian woman, the only hope, I forget her name already because her performance was that riveting was highly touted, an apparent favorite, but flopped badly on both runs and couldn't finish the course either time. Basically a two run crash and burn. In the event only the top score counts but on combined she was probably the worst of the entire field.
To say she choked is understatement. On both runs it looked like she bailed as soon as something went wrong.
No fight to get through course.
2 "oh well" runs. Terrible display.
Wrong day to Canadas performance I guess.
I'm guessing you have never hit a jump in your life? It is incredibly dangerous to hit jumps (especially ones that size) when traveling at an insufficient speed. If you don't make it to the landing (where the hill starts descending) you're absolutely ****ed.
