MAX FRANZ: THE BEST CAME LAST
In the Downhill run of the men, Max Franz surprised with a first class performance after ups and downs in training. "I've already tried everything in the training, even the things you shouldn’t try, so I knew what to do. I was a bit hesitant at two turns, so I didn’t think that the ‘three’ would light up during the finish." The Carinthian achieved bronze at the inglorious ÖSV series after five World Cup competitions without a medal. Race Manager Höflehner: "Max certainly showed his best performance here in St. Moritz when it was most important. In the past he was thrown off the course again and again by small setbacks. This season shows what’s possible with him, if he is fit, has confidence in himself and in the material."
