The second men’s Super-G was canceled in Bormio due to the expected harsh weather. High temperatures and rainfall have had a major impact on the stevio slope, especially in the lower region. The use of salt did not save the species. The FIS announced on Thursday that the Super-G competition could not be held for security reasons.
After the inspection, the runners were skeptical that even racing would happen. “A few runners may have wanted to race, but we know what we’re doing. Due to the rain and hot winds, the track melts a lot in some lanes. It could have been dangerous. Marcus Waldner said Waltner is skeptical about additional betting on Kidsbuhell due to the dense program on ComSstat.
The Super-G in Bormeo was an alternative to Lake Louise. If you can’t race at Wengan, there won’t be a Super-G before the Olympics. In four races so far, Alexander Amot Gilde has won three and made Norway the gold medalist in Beijing. Once upon a time Swiss Marco Odermat was at the top of the stage.
Five ÖSV podium seats so far in Super-G
So far, ÖSV men have seen five stage seats. Matthias Meyer finished second in the first Super-G and Val Gardena at Beaver Creek. Vincent Griezmeier finished third in Val Gardena and Bormeo, which puts the pair in Beijing. The chances of Rafael Hazer being nominated for the Olympics are high. Tyrolean finished second on the first stage of his career in Formio, and eighth and eleventh.
“Since we still have a lot of races, I do not want to comment on the queue yet. We have eight different podium drivers, and everyone wants to go to Beijing. On one platform you’re really in a good position for an Olympic ticket, but I’ll have to wait and see what happens in other disciplines. It will be a bigger title, ”said ÖSV head coach Andreas Poulachcher.
