We've been working with the New York Times for some time to supply them with video and information they planned to use in the Birds of Prey course inspection piece below featuring U.S. Ski Team athlete Ted Ligety. There is a lot of action that takes place at the Audi Birds of Prey World Cup in Beaver Creek that the general public never gets to experience. From coaches and preparation to maintenance and constant communication between racers and teams the piece below does a wonderful job of not only detailing the Birds of Prey Downhill, but, also taking you inside the dugout so to speak.
Click on the link below to watch the piece. Special thanks goes out to Joe Ward and the New York Times for putting together such a great behind the scenes snapshot of the Birds of Prey. Additional thanks goes out to Jalbert Productions for supplying both us and the New York Times with video content from their documentary The Thin Line. You can purchase The Thin Line here, or, check out the Birds of Prey portion of The Thin Line in the embedded video below.The 2010 Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week is scheduled for December 3-5. In the meantime, good luck Ted Ligety in Vancouver!
