Petra Vlhová is close to the fourth slalom victory this season of the Alpine Ski World Cup.
In Tuesday’s first round of the race in Flachau, after the departure of the best fifteen competitors, she was on the 3rd place with a loss of 14 hundredths of a second to the winner, the American Mikaela Shiffrinová. Swiss Wendy Holdener finished second with a deficit of eight hundredths of a second.
“Feelings aren’t that bad, but I felt that the aggressive snow was holding me back. I was driving hard and I was braking by pushing myself into the skis. I tried not to stay in the curve for a long time, but I didn’t do very well.
I struggled with it a bit. So far, it looks pretty good. I’m still high, I will go full round for the second round, “Vlhová told RTVS.
The Slovak national team went on the track as the second after Holdener. On the rhythmic track of the first lap, she showed a flawless ride without the famous drive.
“Peter lacked aggression. The track is not complicated, you have to take more risks. We didn’t see that at Petra’s. Even though she didn’t make a mistake, she didn’t make it to the first place, “said RTVS expert Veronika Velez-Zuzulová.
The second round is on the program from 20.45, we will also offer it to you on the outside broadcast.
Wet coach Livio Magoni admitted before the race in an interview with RTVS that large national teams are making trouble for his men and women.
“I think she’s ready. The others have had more time. Shiffrin, the Austrians, the Norwegians are trying to get us into a difficult situation.
I saw that they trained on the race hill for three days, we couldn’t. We do not have such a strong union behind us. It’s all about my contacts, but Petra is strong, “Magoni admitted.
Will he celebrate with his jewel the third victory in Flachau in a row?
