SUPER SIMON EVEN AT –23°C SPRINT LADIES SMILING IN LAHTI

His performance is as reliable as his sniper rifle! Simon Eder, the charismatic biathlete star in the Redster Nordic Unit once again proved that he can be relied on even in arctic temperatures in Canmore (Canada). He came sixth in the Individuals, which was shortened from 20 to 15 kilometers because of the extreme cold, and fifth with the Austrian relay team. And it was too cold for a big grin with temperatures well under minus 20 degrees in Canmore. But the Atomic Sprint Ladies Tiril Udnes Weng (6th) und Hanna Falk (7th) were smiling after their World Cup in Lahti. Whilst the Nordic Redster Combined with Franz-Josef Rehrl, Manuel Faisst, Fabian Riessle didn’t start in Lahti in preparation for the Nordic Ski World Championships in Seefeld.

Sofia Goggia: The Comeback of the Year

Understatement is not Sofia Goggia’s style. In fact, the 26-year-old from Bergamo, Italy likes to double up on her victories. Which is why, when she took home her first downhill world cup win at Jeongseon in 2017, she followed it up with a Super-G win the very next day. And she didn’t just win Olympic gold in 2018, she also beat out Lindsey Vonn for the world cup title. “You always have to raise the bar a little bit”, she says with a twinkle in her eye.

ROCK´N´REDSTER! 1.21 SECOND LEAD AT THE MARCEL SHOW IN SCHLADMING

“Just wait until everything goes according to plan again!” It’s rare for Marcel to make a threat, but just before Schladming that’s exactly what he did. The classic Slalom races in Wengen and Kitzbühel, where he had to work unusually hard to earn his third and second place aroused the ski maniac in Marcel again. In his last training run before the night race, on his home snow in Annaberg, the hero of all-time skiing changed his setup by a few millimeters. A change so minor that no normal skier would notice this difference. Marcel said, “For me it makes a world of difference”.

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL! STEPHANIE’S 1ST WIN AND SOFIA’S DREAM COMEBACK

Great sporting events in Garmisch! Despite “hot competition” from the racing in Kitzbühel, this weekend it was the Atomic speed ladies who delivered the magic and emotional moments. 42 years after the Atomic skier of the century, Annemarie Moser-Pröll won the Downhill here, Stephanie Venier, the Redster race lady, broke the spell on the Austrians here in Garmisch and won again. With her very first win in the World Cup after a mega season. And just before the World Championships it was great to see Sofia Goggia back at the start after a complicated broken ankle. She came, took a look and came second twice - what a dream comeback! The wacky insider story behind it: whilst Sofia Goggia was out of action due to injury, an Atomic specialist team was busy putting her Redster speed skis into action, as if she had been racing herself. And the crazy thing: her equipment was at the races in North America without her … The
