Weidle has a promising start

As expected, Kira Weidle was unable to compete for the top spots after finishing third in the downhill on Friday. Even though Starnberg’s wife was really fast in the first few meters, she left a little too much time afterwards. She was still satisfied at the finish, because with a ninth place (+0.82) she was in the top ten.

As clean as ‘Mo’ (Mowinckel, editor’s note) no one drives here”Weidle paid tribute to the winner: “I had a few corners where I felt comfortable. Then there were two small wobbles, so it wasn’t 100% clean. Maybe I underestimated the pace of the race a bit. But ninth place is quite correct.

Weidle “absolutely satisfied”

All in all, Weidle moved in”positive” Conclusion for the World Cup weekend – despite his somewhat disappointing 15th place on Saturday in the downhill: “Yesterday was a stupid windy day. In terms of skiing, however, I am absolutely satisfied. There are still a few details I need to work on before the World Cup in two weeks.

Apart from Weidle, only Katrin Hirtl-Stanggassinger was at the start from a German point of view. The 24-year-old hit the tracks with the late starting number 40. Technically she rode cleanly, but lacked the bite needed to attack the top 30 spots. She finished 32nd with a 2.45 second lead.

Bassino submits – Mowinckel counterattacks

At the Olimpia della Tofane, Bassino initially set the competition’s first target time. With starting number four, the Italian mastered the course with smooth turns and a very tight radius and crossed the finish line in 1:23.69 minutes.

But Mowinckel presented the tactically smarter ride. The Norwegian put the pressure on in the decisive phases and opened up a lead of three tenths before the final sector. That should be enough to oust Bassino from the top spot.

With the starting number 16, Cornelia Hütter set out to beat Mowinckel’s time. The Austrian started promisingly and also rode smoothly and cleanly in the last section. But she was no longer able to match Mowinckel’s outstanding performance in the final section.

Shiffrin’s record postponed

Mikaela Shiffrin, meanwhile, has yet to wait for her 83rd World Cup victory, which would make her the sole record holder among female skiers. The American started aggressively as usual, led in the early splits and excelled with her strong technique. But then she made a mistake in the final third and lost important seconds. In the end, the 27-year-old finished seventh (+0.62).

There is a crucial corner that I did not quite understand. Here you have to take all the risks, otherwise you have no chance“Shiffrin then analyzed his race.:”It’s an incredibly long season, of course you can be disappointed if you don’t finish on the podium, but I just try to keep the good feeling.
