Seems to not yet be a thread on the WC for this upcoming season. If I missed it, merge if possible.

US Ski Team has been leaking the race suits today on Facebook. Here are some:

Travis Ganong modeling the men's alpine suits (I get a Captain America vibe):

Julia Mancouso modeling the ladies' alpine suits (interesting as she hasn't raced since 3/7/15, hope this means her recovery is going well; I'd love to see her at the GS in Killington):

Sadie Bjornsen modeling the unisex XC suit (Says USA vertically in red on the sleeves):

    I got to say, these are completely 100% sexy. Much better than recent years' suits.  Only downfall is the best parts of the suits (the stars on the chest) will all be covered by bibs.

    Saw video of Steve Nyman make his first hesitant turns this weekend, he published on instagram if you're interested.   Regret I don't have a lot of hope that he'll be any kind of factor, sorry to say.   He is such a likable guy and was a very exciting skier.  Hope he can come back.  35 yrs old

    Not sure how successful she'll be this time around in her comeback attempt.... If one follows her social media feeds, it's easy to see that her training this time around has been far different, and looking like less strenuous than previous attempts.  I'm think that she's still her free spirit self, but maybe enjoying her now married life a bit more than her past ski racing life....
