This week Steve Porino talks with two members of the coaching community. He discusses Lindsey Vonn’s training over the holiday break in December with Brandon Dyksterhouse. Vonn reached out to Dyksterhouse for help fine tuning her equipment set up and training as the Olympic Winter Games and classic World Cups draw near.

Porino also catches up with Urban Planisek, the head coach of the Russian team, after Pavel Trikhichev landed on the podium in the Wengen combined. Porino and Planisek discuss the IOC action on Russian doping, the fabric and future of the Russian alpine team, and Porino and Lyons talk other World Cup news and events.

Steve Porino & Scott Lyons
-
Steve: Hates the sport baseball. Grew up learning to ski on the bump outside of Chicago called Wilmont. Despite being saddled with the technique that can only be termed the “Wilmont wiggle," he attended Burke Mountain Academy and then was a member of the U.S. Ski Team. He has spent the last 20 years pontificating about the sport of skiing either for Ski Racing Media or NBC Sports. His knowledge is encyclopedic (or is that wikopedic?) He resides in Sun Valley and talks skiing every week during the winter. Scott: Even though he has lived almost half his life in Denver, Colo., he is still an insane Boston Red Sox fan. He skied at Burke Mountain Academy, the U.S. Ski Team and Dartmouth College. He still believes his ski racing comeback is imminent. Most recently, he has been the alpine ski racing researcher for NBC Sports, and he spends a good chunk of his time arguing about the sport.
