Riders in this news : Didier DEFAGO
Didier Défago has won the Super G in Kitzbühel ahead of Bode Miller (+0.05). Aksel Lund Svindal and Max Franz (+0.15) share the third place. 15 days before the Olympic Games in Sochi, this is a huge victory for the reigning Downhill Olympic Champion.
“I’m happy. I had a great feeling during the race. I was angry after the downhill. Since Bormio, I know that I’m not far from the podium. Today, I do a run without mistakes. I didn’t think I was ahead because the course was very tight!”
The racer from Rossignol Team has already had a good result on the Streif with a win in 2009 in downhill. Luc Alphand, three times winner in Kitzbühel, was very impressed by Defago’s performance: “Didier, it’s my hero! I found that it was huge when he has made the double Wengen-Kitz in 2009. He has the racing in the blood, I’m happy for him!”
Today, Didier Défago signs his second career victory in Super G. “My skis were well prepared, I would like to say my servicemen big thanks”.
