Video and comments on Kris Freeman doing classic sprints and a freestyle distance session at the June 2010 Bend Camp:

  1. Doublepole sprints: Kris is way high and forward at the beginning of the pole plant, and his skis have left the ground because of the force of the pole return. He is not getting up on his toes: his arms swinging forward and up have enough momentum to pull his body off the snow.
  2. These are doublepole SPRINTS. I don't think anyone could maintain this in a distance race...
  3. The freestyle distance clips are at a slow pace, so it's easy to watch his technique...
