Speed specialist Siebenhofer also in GS top ten
In the ladies' race it was Styrian athlete Siebenhofer who skied the third fastest time in the second run to take her from 27th to tenth place – in what was her first World Cup Giant Slalom race since January 2016. "Old love never dies, this discipline is sort of in my heart," said the cheerful 28-year-old. Carinthian racer Katharina Truppe was the second Fischer Race Family athlete to pick up points, finishing 19th overall.
There was also praise for Siebenhofer from the new women's head coach Christian Mitter. "Adding a tenth place in GS to two victories in Downhill shows what a talented skier she is." Siebenhofer herself took many positives away from her performance. "I've now got the nervousness of the first race of the season out of the way and am a little further than the others," she said, with a grin on her face. She has no ambitions, however, of now also competing in the Giant Slalom in Killington.
