Dominik Paris shone like a star this morning in Santa Caterina Valfurva, during the team trainings on the Compagnoni course – the World Cup theatre of a Super-G on December 27, of a Downhill on December 28 and of an Alpine Combined on December 29.
It was a real ‘tour de force’ for the Azzurro from Val d’Ultimo – who raced on Monday night in the parallel giant slalom of Alta Badia and reached Santa Caterina by helicopter in the morning (6 minutes flight instead of 3 hours drive) – and who proved to stand out.
“Rest? – said Domme – Yes, a bit but I have two days of slalom training to prepare for the Alpine Combined.” He was the fastest this morning, ahead of of Austrians, the Americans and the Canadian Cook. Hannes Trinkl – Race Director World Cup Men Speed Events – was there too and was satisfied with the conditions of the Compagnoni slope: “The track is in excellent conditions, still some details to be fixed and next week it will be perfect.” he said.
Peter Fill, instead, didn’t do any Downhill training and preferred a Super-G one on the same track. Now it’s time to rest, at home to celebrate Christmas with families, but on Sunday everyone will be back to Santa Caterina for the first official training on Monday, December 26.
