Peter Fill was responsible for the second premiere - World Cup victory number 3, the first in the Super-G. The 2016 Downhill World Cup Champion will tackle mission ‘title defense’ at the Aspen final in the role of the hunter. Eight hundredths were the deciding factor for rank 2. Now he needs to catch up by 33 points. "I like the starting position. I’ll do my part, the rest is out of my hands." Michaela Kirchgasser (third in the first Combination) and Stephanie Venier (third in the Super-G) were responsible for the other podium finishes.
MIKAELA AND MARCEL: AN ABSOLUTE BLAST
In addition to Fill also Tina Weirather (Super-G / outsider chances for Stephanie Venier) and Marcel Hirscher (Slalom) are facing a hot dance around the Small Crystal Globe. Both are, however, the leaders in the last two competitions. The Atomic Heroes already have their hands already on the Globe In four further categories. In addition to Mikaela Shiffrin (Overall, Slalom) also Marcel Hirscher, who comfortably leads the Giant Slalom by 94, and the Overall World Cup by now only mathematically achievable 404 points. Christian Höflehner: "We will fight for each Crystal like lions. But to know the two Big Globes are within reach, of course, is an absolute blast."
The World Cup team is now moving to Jeongson (Korea / Women) for a Downhill race and a Super-G for the final Olympic rehearsal, the men will compete in Kranjska Gora in Giant Slalom and Slalom.
