This results in times of around 20-23 seconds.(I'm 14 years old)
    Wait a minute.... did you just quote your own post and then agree with yourself?

    Would have been funnier if he had disagreed with himself. Lots of zombie threads today.

    Another old thread was revived yesterday. It was nice to see posts from Mumster and Ron Simonson.

    Both posts discuss valid topics.

    As far as hitting gates goes, I try not to be super aggressive. They've cost me two broken ribs and a broken foot.

    I don't believe hitting gates is good unless you have a GS suit with padding (or other padding options) on shoulders, forearms, hips, etc.

    I got badly bruised in my upper arm/shoulder and forearm when I intentionally hit gates without padding.

    Pretty sure this post did get dug up and i know i replied from ski brule on my ipod, probably not looking at who posted the original. I feel like my current high school 4.0 has been denied....... :(

    Okay, it's not GS but this is the best way to hit gates.
