Daron Rahlves

Today we interviewed Daron Rahlves for Appointment in Vancouver.  The U.S. Ski Cross team has two members — Daron and Casey (the hero of AIV) — so it was critical to nab some time with Daron.  He’s both a teammate and a competitor of Casey’s.

Daron is widely considered the most successful U.S. downhill racer of all time.  He’s got a gazillion podium finishes to his name, including being the only American to win the famed Hahnenkamm Downhill (2003).  At the 2010 games, he’ll be chasing the same gold medal Casey claims is his.

I found Daron to be warm, articulate, inspired and inspiring.  His keen insight and ego-free honesty will be exciting additions to our film.

Big thanks to Lowell who reps both Daron and Casey and loaned us his hotel room for the taping.  Another big thanks to Dominique Martinez for lighting and shooting the interview with her usual professional awesomeness.
