The Swiss Lara Gut-Behrami (+1.02) and US star Mikaela Shiffrin (+1.08) followed in the ranks. Nina Ortlieb was injured while driving in.

The woman from Vorarlberg was transported to the hospital with a suspected lower leg injury. The second best Austrian in the first part of the Speed ​​Triple in the luxury ski resort was Stephanie Venier in sixth place (+1.58) behind Federica Brignone. Mirjam Puchner ranked tenth after 40 runners (+2.27), Ariane Rädler ranked 15th (+2.64) after a quick but incorrect performance.

Hütter’s first finding was overall positive. “The basic speed is right. If you want to be at the front, then you have to show a run without mistakes. Sofia did that,” explained Hütter on ORF. The World Cup third place in the Super-G set a clear best time with start number 6, but was immediately overtaken by the following Goggia.

Despite an unsatisfactory upper part for her, Hütter was able to score 80 points – and her tenth career podium finish in the Super-G. “Sofia really took it from me there. But I know where I lost the tenths. I probably got half a second on two goals because I didn’t catch them at all,” explained Hütter.

Venier “at the limit”

Venier described the difficulties of the first of eleven Super-G seasons. “It’s deceptive with all the waves. None of them come down without errors, but they invite you to attack.” It was perfect for Goggia’s brutal style. “I’m a bit surprised,” said the 31-year-old given the lead in her 23rd World Cup victory. “I was at my limit and couldn’t always see that much. But I probably hit the spots.”

How thin the line is was shown by the attack of her teammate Elena Curtoni, who was lifted in compression after a bump and hit the net hard. Last year’s runner-up seemed to have escaped without any major injuries. There is a downhill on Saturday and another Super-G on Sunday (10.30 a.m./ORF 1).
