Weidle alone at the start
After Katrin Hirtl-Stanggassinger started for the DSV yesterday, Kira Weidle (car number 29) is the German lone fighter again today. The Starnberg woman, who finished tenth in the downhill on Saturday, is not so strong in the Super G. Only once did she finish in the top 15 in the World Cup, that was a year ago in St. Anton.
Olympia delle Tofane
Monte Cristallo or the 3,244 meter high Tofana di Mezzo characterize the picture in the Olympic location of 1956. The latter also gives the competition slope its name. 2,010 meters of track await on the Olimpia delle Tofane today. From the start at 2,160 meters, Franz Gamper’s course shows the way over the 600 meters of altitude to the valley. The South Tyrolean coach in the service of the Czech association scored 44 goals.
