A few days ago, Mayer caused a stir at ÖSV in the run-up to Bormio’s Super-G.
“That’s enough for me, I don’t have a bite anymore,” Meyer explained on the ORF microphone with tears in his eyes.

The unexpected farewell to the 11-time World Cup winner has raised questions about the possible causes.
Eberharter suspects the secret behind Meyer’s resignation
“You left me so confused,” former world athlete Eberharter wrote in his “kron” column on his compatriot’s passing.
“Somewhat vague, I think to myself. Logically, his decision is perfectly acceptable. But I have a feeling that ‘Mothl’ tells us nothing, and that there is more to it than that. Something that might only be resolved in the future.”

Eberharter cannot fully understand why Meyer decided to retire so soon after the start of the World Cup. “It makes no sense,” said the 2002 Olympic champion.
Mayer endured the agony of preparation and prepared intensely for the season, only to “end his career at Bormio from minute to minute. The question why inevitably remains in the hall”.
Despite the question marks surrounding Mayer’s resignation, Eberharter fully understands his decision. “I’m the first to understand when a downhill racer says, ‘I can’t do this anymore!'” “Every time they risk their health, even their lives,” says Eberhardt. Perhaps the future will show us the real reasons behind this.
