Everyone is also looking forward to the duel between local hero Beat Feuz and the South Tyrolean Dominik Paris, While the “Kugelblitz” often landed on the podium in the Bernese Oberland, the Ultner has never managed to finish in the top three. In the first training session, the Confederate bluffed, the Super G World Champion came third.
The route, which takes around two and a half minutes of driving time, requires every athlete to be extremely focused right from the start. Whoever makes the least mistakes will be happy about the victory. The timeless classic has been chosen by many athletes as their favorite piste, because adrenaline and palpitations are always provided. The ski racers must have the courage, stamina and willingness to take risks and often have to jump over their own shadows, which means to go beyond their own limits.
The American showed behind Caviezel Ryan Cochran-Siegle its great class. The Austrians for downhill Olympic champion Matthias Mayer were more likely with a handbrake on. The same time Thomas Dreßen and the Confederate Carlo Janka eighth was pretty clean; and many others like Kjetil Jansrud from Norway and other top athletes were rather reserved.
Christof Innerhofer from South Tyrol would like to celebrate his comeback on Saturday. The Pusterer, who has already won in the Bernese Oberland and knows the route with its finesse and key points inside out, showed a satisfactory performance in the first training session.
As already mentioned, a break was made on Wednesday before the downhill specialists or the second and final training session on the Lauberhorn route was due on Thursday.
