After the technical races, speed races take places this weekend in Beaver Creek (USA) for the ladies and in Lake Louise (Canada) for the men. Some athletes of Rossignol Team give their goals for next season.
Stacey Cook (USA): “In the coming season I am really looking to build off the success and progress I have made in the last few seasons. I know I can be fast on any day and am looking to have confidence every race to go for the win. My biggest priority is to be prepared to have a great race at the Olympics. That includes qualifying, securing a good start position, and doing everything I can to feel ready and prepared on that day. I also want to give a chase for the Downhill World Cup Title. That would be a really special accomplishment for me!”
Didier Defago (SUI): “I would like to come back in the Top 10 in Downhill and in Super G, to achieve a podium during the Classic Downhills in January and also a Top 3 in Beaver Creek. I never had a result on this slope. And also, I wish to win my qualification for the Olympic Games and to defend my title.”
Tommy Biesemeyer (USA): “This upcoming season, I hope to stay healthy and take my skiing to the next level. Of course the Olympics are a goal, but most importantly I want to say that I didn't leave anything on the hill at the end of the day. This feeling motivates me each day and I look forward to my opportunities this season. “
Ilka Stuhec (SLO): “I would like to improve my status between the best of downhill skiers and also move forward in Super G and GS. I wouldn't speak in numbers.“
Jan Hudec (CAN): “My goal is to win Lake Louise!”
Brice Roger (FRA): “I wish I will take my qualification for the Olympic Games because it’s a dream. I want to be part of the Top 15 in downhill, Super G and Combined. If I succeed, it will be a very nice season!”
Marie Marchand-Arvier (FRA): “2014 means Sochi for me. I would like to grab a medal during the Games. I should be in a good shape and make good results during the first races in Beaver Creek/Lake Louise/St Moritz/Val d'Isère. I want to give my best!”
