Atomic Race Manager Christian Höflehner was pleased with his sure bet for victory too: ”Mikaela was more active, more aggressive than last time. Levi was a hint for her to sharpen her risk management again. Even skiing more aggressively she was still tremendously confident.” The 21st podium in her last 22 World Cup slaloms has provided her with an encouraging interim result before the speed challenge in Lake Louise, which she’ll tackle full of anticipation with: 4 races, 305 points and was able to defend her red bib sovereignly too.
Second Atomic highlight in Vermont: Katharina Gallhuber (20), who skied in her best career result to-date with 7th place in slalom. Höflehner: “Impressive that she didn’t hold anything back in the final.”
