“He smashed through the picket fence and smashed himself down and was all cut up and bloodied. He got back up and got third in the second race.” –Bode Miller
Lucky for Pietro Vitalini the snow gods were looking favorably upon him and provided a cushioned landing after he cartwheeling over the fence at Kitzbühel back in 1995. If it hadn’t snowed 3 feet-3.5 feet the night before, Pietro would have landed on a boulder field. Don’t even want to imagine what would have happened if it hadn’t snowed.
