Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I said before the second run, he'd either be on the podium, or he'd fall - as he was taking a shit or bust approach.

Yesterday I could have sworn that the BBC sport website said it was on the red button this morning and even gave the time it was on. When I looked this morning it had disappeared (or was never there of course wink ) and there was only NFL on a loop.

Bad luck Dave, don't think you would have won it but maybe a podium.

England did have someone of the podium but he has decided he is Swiss!!!

He will be annoyed as he had done a good job in the steep and just got a bit ahead of the exit gate, meant he was foot bound and went down. Made 1 decent mistake but prob would have made podium. Good to see a charge though and he really does look sharp.

Meh. That was his for the taking. I still think he can’t handle the heat when he is in a good position .
His only chance of a win is coming down at 15 ish. On the second run and not caring wether he wins or not

Dave is not on the start list for Adelboden tomorrow. Anyone know why?
Charlie Raposo has a start. Bib 50 so that is good.

Because it is a Giant Slalom tomorrow. The Slalom is on Sunday.

Given how Dave Ryding has done well in parallel slaloms in the past - which seem to me be a bit more GS’y than slalom’y, anyone got an opinion on why he doesn’t do GS? I could see him doing well...

@chrisdavis, Not really, GS is very different to Slalom these days and it is hard to train for both.

I’d like to see what he could do in GS. I think he’d be a contender.

They all have slightly larger personal teams than just Dave and Tris.

I have seen him race FIS GS, there have always been faster GBR racers at it.

Out of interest, what's so different in terms of training? I've always thought GS required more power, but that's only a guess. Must be more to it than hitting the gym as he certainly has the technical skills.

If you'd like to hear how Dave Ryding is getting on in lockdown, we interviewed him for The Ski Podcast here (an episode described by at least one Snowhead as 'the best and most interesting interview I have heard with Dave Ryding'):

I see Dave is parting company with Lange and Dynastar. Any insight what’s next - not retirement
