The majority were able to have a break, as the City Grand Prix in Dresden will only be fought for by the pure sprint specialists. Simen Hegstad Krueger, Third in the Tour, carried on his momentum from his top performance, and is looking forward to new tasks.

MARCEL’S DONE IT AGAIN! A HERO’S JOURNEY…

Every weekend the World Championship season is increasing speed and dynamics. The classic races are the backdrop to fight for World Championship places, and also for the constant, regular showdowns of the best Slalom and Giant Slalom skiers in the world.

Marcel Hirscher himself, is skiing his first runs, as if he could have done with another espresso, and is giving ski racing a fine storyboard in January. Until he gets together with his team of chief strategists in the break, and then changes the complete setup every time and shows, with his decision, who is the greatest skier ever. Marcel is making a hero’s journey out of his wins. In Adelboden he won his 66th and 67th World Cup races.

SUPER SIMEN TOOK HIS PLACE ON THE PODIUM ON THE LAST CLIMB!

Simen Hegstad Krueger isn’t only a talented cross-country skier, he’s also got a lot of talent for drama at big events in cross-country sport. At the Olympics in Pyeongchang the Redster Star had the highly-emotional trilogy – fall in the hectic start – broken pole – win in the skiathlon helped him to become famous worldwide. Now with a grueling performance on the very last climb to Alpe Cermis in the Tour de Ski the Norwegian secured third place on the podium. A longed-for success, nearly as important as his three Olympic medals, as Simen is now back for the future.
