Surprised and ready for new challenges. After Sofia Goggia's 23rd career World Cup success: “I'm a little surprised,” she told RAI at the finish, “I went down with 7 and in the Super-G in St. Moritz it's never easy, you have no references .” When I saw the 95/100 advantage, I said to myself, well, I have to wait for everyone else. Along the way I had some not very good sensations, I had to reinvent myself a little, let's say the art of improvisation. I always spent a long time away from the track, but I think I handled the ramps very well at the three key points on the track and made the difference there.”

the progress

Dome showed the three top 10 in the first three giants of the season, the work in the summer was useful. “I'm more of a skier for fast disciplines, but I can't make a living from that alone,” explained Sofia. “I don't think I got it on the slopes that much today because I was a bit leaning in some sections.” “I wasn't clean. But that was the goal.” And at the first speed test of the season, after the double cancellation in Cervinia, he already set the tone: “It was time to start with speed,” recognizes Goggia, “the tests here in St. Moritz went well Quite good. But the competition is tough, I have to do analyzes with the technicians and do my best tomorrow and the day after.” There is still a downhill run and a Super-G on the program.

the rivalry

With success number 23, Federica Brignone moves to the top of the ranking of Italian multiple winners in the World Cup. “We are different: She's more technical, I'm more of a sprinter. This competition is welcome because it keeps interest in skiing and we need it in Italy.”
