Didier Cuche finished his 17 year World Cup career by racing the final GS in Austria wearing vintage wool ski gear, wooden skis, poles and leather boots! It took him some time getting down the course, hugging fans and officials as he descended the course, finishing more than 2 minutes behind the race winner. It was obviously Cuche's slowest World Cup time of his career...but he sure did it in style! After crossing the finish line, he even performed his trademark ski flip with the old wooden skis! Really cool way to finish an amazing career.
