GARMISCH-WINNER KILDE: EVEN STRONGER THAN SVINDAL!
A challenging race track, bad visibility and a race practically in the books for the unexpected man of the race Bostjan Kline. However, with starting number 30 Atomic rising star Alexander Aamodt Kilde flew down the Kandahar turning the rankings upside down. “Now that was fun”, smiled the 23-year-old powerhouse from Norway after the wild ride celebrating his first win of the 2015/16 World Cup season. Not even his compatriot Aksel Svindal can match his stats when it comes to power. Atomic Race Director Christian Höflehner emphasizes the fast rise of his protégé: “Before the season there were only two athletes born after 1990 in the Top-30 of the downhill-rankings. And now a ‘92 is winning such a challenging downhill race.” The Redster service crew did a prime job to provide perfectly tuned equipment to land their 10th victory of the season. “With a bumpy piste like here you need damp and stable material in order to being able to attack”, adds Höflehner. “The intermediates in the flat sections speak volumes.”
