REDSTER GLORY DAYS: EVERY THIRD RACE A VICTORY
And in the brand ranking - Atomic! Exactly 7,000 points were sufficient in the end for the victory, which was significantly more pronounced in other categories: Most victories (24)! Most podiums (66)! The absolute majority of Crystal Globes (7 of 12)! As the only brand, victories in all five disciplines for the ladies and gentlemen (3 each in Downhill and Super-G, 7 in Giant Slalom, 9 in Slalom, 2 in Combination)! Most medals (12) and rank 1 in the brand-medal-ranking (3 x gold, 5 x silver, 4 x bronze) at the World Championship in St. Moritz!
A total of 14 Redster athletes stood on a World Cup podium this year, with Sofia Goggia, Stephanie Venier, Nils Hintermann, Mauro Caviezel and Manuel Feller (Slalom Vice World Champion) as well as five racers who had their debut. At the World Cup final in Aspen, however, the experienced racers set the tone again. Marcel Hirscher achieved World Cup victory number 45, Peter Fill (34) accomplished a successful title defense in the Downhill World Cup, Tina Weirather delivered the necessary victory in the Super-G in order to be able to win a Crystal Globe for the first time. Christian Höflehner: "The greatest respect for this killer instinct. It is almost too good to be true that the two 50-percent-chances worked out for us in the finals." A look at the final results in the Overall World Cup also documents the team strength of the Redster team: three of the top 7 in the ladies’ and gentlemen’s category rely on equipment from Altenmarkt - including the two winners Peter Fill (6th), Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (7th), Tina Weirather (7th) and Sofia Goggia (3rd). The 24-year-old had begun the season with zero podiums, ended it with 13 and as the second Italian of alpine skiing history raced to the top-3 of the Overall ranking. A historic catapult start!
