The German hope Alexander Schmid is no longer there anymore, for him the race was already enough for him only 20 seconds: the Allgäu was on the road with start number nine and intermediate visit with starting numbers, as he threaded after a driving error. Disappointed he drove to the edge of the trail and sank into the snow.
“That annoys me, of course I made something else,” Schmid said in the ARD. He could be “just so explained that it was a bit smooth. I just slipped away.” The borderline conditions on the “ice flow” slist should but not be an excuse, everyone has to go through “.
Slalom-Ass Linus Strasse, who wanted to enter the race in his special discipline on Wednesday, remained unhurt in his fall. Julian Smoke Foot came with a residue of 5.30 seconds on the leading pot favorites Marco Odmatt (Switzerland) on the disappointing 30th place.
