Riders in this news : Christof INNERHOFER
Christof Innerhofer signed the first podium of its season during the downhill of Wengen. On the longest slope of theWorld Cup, the Italian mastered his run and ends 3rd behind Beat Feuz and Hannes Reichelt. It is the third podium of its career in downhill of World cup after its 3rd place in 2010 and its victory to Bormio in 2008. In trouble since the beginning of season, the World Champion 2011 of Super-giant showed in Switzerland today that he was back among the best. A very good news for the Team Rossignol before the stage of Kitzbühel next week.
Marie Marchand-Arvier and Marion Rolland make you share their last feelings before the downhill and the Super Giant which will take place this weekend to Cortina d' Ampezzo!
Marie, how do you go after your fall during the second training? “I just slid, I would have certainly some bruises but it’s ok. It is a little bit frustrating because I was not able to finish but that is only the training. The most important, it is tomorrow!”
What were your feelings during the first training? “The slope is very well prepared this year and rather easy. I think that I wasn’t so engaged, but I am going to rectify it during the race.”
You had signed your first podium here in 2007, it is necessarily encouraging …
“Many persons like this place. I really have a particular story with Cortina. I have in heart to make beautiful races and to remain to concentrate on the present moment.
Marion, how took place the second training?
“Good even if the chronometer is not significant. It was very windy and we stopped before the area of arrival. I still miss important passages then I hope that tomorrow, I would have quite well set up.”
What are the particularities of this slope ?
“The snow is very hanging and it is not necessarily very fast. It is a rather simple slope and you must always search speed. Those who will be in front of, they will be the starved …”
Jean-Baptiste Grange signed his best result of the winter in Adelboden’slalom. Only 14th of the first leg, the world champion of the discipline realized a complete second run and takes a beautiful 5th place. This result is very interesting before the series of slaloms which he likes particularly with Wengen, Kitzbühel or still Schladming.
