These are the statements of the protagonists during the press conference
Kjetil Jansrud (Nor), first place
“I’m really surprised because I have never been able to express myself the best I could on this course. The low light in the upper part has always intimidated me. Besides, I’ve got a little flu. This victory is a good omen for the DH race.
Me as Hermann Maier? Three consecutive Super-G victories are incredible. I was already happy with two, it is a great honor to be compared to Hermann. But I’ll think of history only at the end of my career”.
Hannes Reichelt (Aut), second place
“For me it is a very important result after the back surgery in September. I thought “I could be competitive in January” but I’ve anticipated it and it’s great considering that the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2017 will happen in six weeks. For me and the rest of the Austrian team Franz’s victory in Gardena was crucial. This Compagnoni is a beautiful course, it enhances Super-G. I missed two curves on the top part, I didn’t take any risk, but only at the end I was able to attack as I did. ”
DOMINIK PARIS (Ita), third place
“I’m really happy with this third place, also because I didn’t do that well during the DH training. After the debaclé in Gardena it was not easy to find the right skiing pace. Now it’s DH time, I will not repeat the mistakes of the training. “
