Madonna Di Campiglio – If we look at the result of yesterday’s slalom from Madonna Di Campiglio from the perspective of South Tyrol, it was very positive. With Alex Vinitzer, who missed the podium, and Simon Morberger, who was 10th, two athletes made it to the top 10.
Wenitzer was happy anyway. He said he made some mistakes on the steep incline and at the bottom of the road. This confirmed that he did not finish in the top three as he did last year. The guy from Val Gardena is confident that the next race in Zagreb will go well. Now he wants to work on fine tuning. January is the most intense month for gate runners, and there are five resolutions in the program.
The last goal also played a decisive role in Trentino. If it was Vinatzer who failed because of this in Val d’Isère, then first-half leader Clement Noel caught it yesterday. But back to Mauerberger: the 26-year-old from Ahrntal was happy to finish third in the top ten of his career. The result was important. So it is better if he scored it for him in the most beautiful race.
Before Mauerberger and Vinitzer start in Croatia, they will train on the Aluch slope in Val di Fassa from Monday. Manfred Mulge, Giuliano Razzoli, Tommaso Sala and Stefano Gross will also be there. The azure athletes have fond memories of the race in Zagreb. Wenitzer climbed to his first World Cup podium two years ago. In 2017, the last Azzurro team celebrated their victory with Mölgg.
Giuliano Razzoli won here in January 2010, one year after his first 3 places, to win the Olympic gold medal in goal post 52 days in Vancouver, Canada.
