After the super-G is before the downhill
A brief analysis of the super-G was on the agenda at the fourth and final team captains' meeting on Friday evening in Selva/Wolkenstein. At the same time, final details for the downhill classic on Saturday were discussed.
The president of the Saslong Classic Club, Rainer Senoner was extremely satisfied with the race on Friday. "We have a good super-G behind us. The cooperation between all those involved was once again flawless - I would like to express my sincere thanks for that," said Senoner.
FIS Race Director Markus Waldner took the same line and had only positive accolades about the first of the two speed races: "The super-G was set well and it was an exciting right. There were two falls, which were fortunately without serious consequences. A big compliment also went to Rainer and his team, who did a great job as usual. The top three deserved to be on the podium - I would like to express my compliments to them as well."
As for Saturday's downhill, Waldner expects conditions to be similar to the super-G: "We removed the gates and cleaned the course after the race today. Following the inspection, the course will be ready for racing. The wind is expected to get stronger during the night, but it should subside soon tomorrow. Sunny weather is forecast again for the downhill," commented the FIS Race Director.
The downhill classic on the Saslong will take place on Saturday from 11:45 am. The race will be opened by Austrian Otmar Striedinger.
