Its been 4 years since French skier Quentin Ladame stepped to the legendary speed skiing hill at the Vars France speed skiing hill wearing the customary skin tight red one-piece and dropped in backwards. On that day Ladame achieved the fastest known switch skiing speed 138.62 km/h (86.13 mph). I think the with right athlete and a bit of specialized gear this record could be shattered….anyone interested?

Call me crazy but I think wearing one of these rigs and not having to peek over your shoulder might the game changer for switch speed skiing aerodynamics.  Record is there for the breaking if anyone wants to giver:
