Abstract: Elite alpine ski racing comprises bidirectional turning with forceful concentric but predominantly eccentric contractions that create large quadriceps muscle loading and hamstrings/quadriceps muscle co-contraction (4, 10). Ski racing also occurs in an unpredictable environment where skiers are at an increased risk for lower body injury, especially to the knee joint and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) (2, 3, 8, 15). Unlike field sports, there are no sex-differences in ACL injury rates due to the preclusion of sex-related risk factors resulting from the large forces and unique mechanisms of ACL injury (8, 15).
