Red-white-red half-pipe expert Marco Lautner (D), like many of his rivals, struggled with his uncle’s adverse weather conditions. “The strong wind made it very difficult to show the planned tricks. In my first run, I went down so much in the tube due to the wind speed that it hurt my knee and we decided to skip the second run.” In the end, Tyrolean finished 22nd with 60.66 points.

Tyrolean Laura Wallner finished 14th in the most difficult situation and was able to record the top 15 results again. “Conditions were not easy, and the strong winds were really a big challenge. I’m glad I was able to collect a few points to go one step further towards the Olympic goal,” said Samuel Bamkardner (Upper Austria), who finished 22nd, ahead of Salzburg. Injured men’s duo Lucas Mவர்ller and Hans Rudiger of Tyrol had to contend with difficult conditions and their physical ailments, and Hannes Rudigier, still struggling with a knee problem, finished 27th.

For this, Laura Wolf (D) will join the World Cup squad again. Matej Svancer (S), on the other hand, is heading to Aspen from January 16 to take part in the X Games, so he will not be at the start of the font Romeu.
