WC DH Women Garmisch

The Alpine skiing ladies started in Garmisch this weekend. In very good but freezing winter conditons, -20° C, very exciting races were carried out. The athletes had to tape their faces or ski with a mask on. With 120 km/h the temperatures feel colder still and this can easily amount to frostbite.

The choice of materials wasn’t easy for the service staff. The cold, aggressive snow and the partly icy slope made it difficult to find the right balance.

Last Monday, most teams arrived in Oslo after the one-week break. As temperatures are sinking in all of Europe, this also happened at Holmenkollen day after day. The national arena presented itself in best winter conditions.

At the sprint race on Thursday, the athletes’ faces could hardly be seen as they taped their faces against the cold. TOKO girl Magdalena Neuner/GER brought home her 30th world cup victory with 0 shooting errors and an impressive skiing performance. Daria Domracheva/BLR became 2nd and Tora Berger won 3rd place in her own country.

The trip to Sochi was a big challenge for all teams. Three planes were loaded with skis and bags in Zurich. After a turbulent flight, the journey to the skiing region Rosa Khutor continued by bus. The skiers were able to run three training tours on the technical and icy slope. Many athletes had big difficulties with the demanding slope.

All favorites for the Overall World Cup met at Nove Mesto na Morave in the Czech Republic. The leg is predestined for the classic technique. The race on its 15 km (women) and 30 km (men) distance was not just about the day victory but also about taking another step towards the Overall World Cup. Justina Kowalczyk’s performance was very strong and she already started with a high speed with which only the two Norwegians Marit Björgen and Therese Johaug could keep up. Johaug had to give in on the last kilometers so that only Björgen and Kowalczyk came into question for the victory.

WC Alpine Crans-Montana

After 14 years, the men’s skiing world cup is back in Crans-Montana. The hosts were able to take over a Kitzbühel ryce that had to be cancelled in January. The sunny and very warm weather resulted in having to use chemicals on the wet snow on the slope to be able to run the race. The speed races were held on a soft and bumpy slope with a lot of different grounds. This led to various accidents and crashes, unfortunately including injuries.

After the races in Sochi and Bansko, the women’s skiing world cup stopped over in Ofterschwang. The very well organised event in the Allgäu took over a giant slalom of Soldeu (AND). In lovely spring weather and with a big audience, many good races were held. The hosts including the numerous assistants from all over the Allgäu, did a great job. They had to work day and night as the soft snow had to be prepared using chemicals. Thanks to the very good performance of the German team in the last years, a lot of spectators showed up in Ofterschwang.

The Norwegian women’s team showed all their strength in the women’s pursuit race. No one could keep up with Therese Johaug on the challenging leg. The lightweight used her advantage on the steep rises and won with a great margin. She was only pursued by her three team colleagues whose freestyle allowed them  to get rid of their competitors. Of these three, Marit Björgen got the best end, Heidi Weng reached third place. It was the first for her on the podium.

This year’s Swiss alpine championchips took place in Veysonnaz. The first downhill training on Monday had to be cancelled due to snowfall and a soft slope. On Tuesday, there was beautiful spring weather with warm temperatures. The races had to start early in the morning as the sun then was not yet strong enough to melt the snow. For the skiers and trainers, the morning started with breakfast at 5.30, afterwards they went to have a look at the course.

The traditional 50 km race on the Holmenkollen proved to be this winter’s longest trial for the cross-country skiers. The difficult elevation profile as well as the extremely slow snow conditions put a lot of pressure on the skiers.
