The track inspection was accompanied by fog-related delays. St. Anton winner Gut-Behrami, who became Super-G World Champion in Cortina in 2021, found the fastest line. Mikaela Shiffrin came back from her brief regeneration break in second place, 0.16 seconds back. Mirjam Puchner was fourth (+0.63) best Austrian.
The Salzburger, who was still placed behind the German Kira Weidle, found her way around the Olympia delle Tofane right away. The terrain suits her better than that in St. Anton, said Puchner, who therefore felt “more pleasure” despite the less than ideal view. “It was really good training today. It’s still a bit soft in parts, but otherwise the slope is good.”
For Ramona Siebenhofer (6./+0.87), the groove on the last speed weekend before the World Championships went well. The Styrian, who is still fighting for her participation in the World Cup, has fond memories of Cortina. In 2019, Siebenhofer had clinched her only World Cup victories in a Cortina downhill double. And last year he took second place behind Sofia Goggia.
Tamara Tippler (+1.14), Christina Ager and Nina Ortlieb ended up in the group between 12th and 14th place. Nadine Fest, Nicole Schmidhofer and Stephanie Venier in another (21-23) two seconds behind. Cornelia Hütter traditionally started the first training session leisurely (27./+2.39). Immediately in front of Michaela Heider (46th/car number 40), the fog again caused an interruption of several minutes.
Another training session is planned for Thursday, before the first descent, which is also the addendum for St. Anton, is to take place on Friday (10.15 a.m. / live ORF 1).
