Swiss-German Michael Schmid is one of the biggest racer on the roster at 6'4" and 230 pounds -- which is an asset on the flat Aspen course. He finished 4th at Winter X in 2008, but was out in the quarterfinals in 2009, but has had multiple podiums in World Cup races. He ranked 9th in FIS World Cup rankings for 2009. He's a darkhorse for 2010 but has potential to do well.
