This is a simple transition during a ski mountaineering race, well, at least made to look simple, by World Cup racer Pete Swenson. Pete is also the race promoter of the Colorado Ski Mountaineering Cup (COSMIC), based in Breckenridge, CO. COSMIC puts on about 6 races in CO during the winter and has a direct hand in a few other races, including the US Nat Championships in Jackson Hole, WY.
I probably started shooting about 5 seconds after Pete actually arrived in the transition area. He swooped in so fast, and indeed started transitioning even before he came to a stop. That's how World Cup racers do it ladies and gentleman, and that's why Pete is one of the best. Learn from this one. I honestly don't know how fast the next few racers transition times where, but they weren't a minute.
Sorry for the first few seconds, it's really shakey, and vomit inducing, but everything happened so fast, I just started rolling and captured as much as I could.
