Across the ski racing world people are wondering, “is Bode loosing his mind?”
Recently pictured by world class ski photographer, Jonathan Selkowitz, the infamous downhiller is apparently training @SkiPortillo on Full Tilt boots while riding on a pair of Bomber skis. Oh, I forgot to mention the futuristic helmet that look like it belongs on the set of the new Star Wars movie– all because a termination clause disallows Bode from racing competitively on anything but HEAD equipment.
Still, there are three basic question every ski racer is asking themselves right now: Is Bode the first person since the early 90’s to train for the World Cup in a Raichle mold ski boot? Does that helmet really keep the wind out of his eyes while going 80+ mph? And thirdly, can Bomber really create a ski that comes close to HEAD’s world cup offerings?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see as Bode’s training continues on the following gear. Needless to say, we hope to see Bode in the starting gate on this rag tag setup prior to winning his first ever Hahnenkamm.
