Schmidhofer second in Super G
After a top-ten place in the Downhill, Nici Schmidhofer went on to finish second in the Super G in Gröden, which she shared with Tina Weirather.
"Perhaps I need a bad performance in the Downhill from time to time so it works out better in Super G. It was awesome for me today because it became faster the whole time," explained Schmidhofer after her race. "Plus I have new boots which I felt really comfortable with in the Super G," said the Styrian racer, who missed out on victory by a mere 1.2m despite trouble with a big toe.
The successful Fischer duo Schmidhofer/Siebenhofer even had a double cause for celebration in the Super G as Ramona Siebenhofer also had a top-ten finish in this race.
