If he didn't chicken out on the first or second pitch, he'd probably
kill and/or seriously hurt himself.  Remember, the top skiers at the
likes of Cochran's, MMSC, Burke, GMVS, etc. are much better skiers
than this punk and even they probably couldn't handle a course like
the Birds of Prey or the Streif (the course at Kitzbuehel).  Even
Hermann Maier wasn't allowed to race on the Streif when he first
started on the World Cup at least in part because they didn't want him
to get hurt.
