The World Cup runners-up Romed Baumann and Andreas Sander lead the team of the German Ski Association at the first speed events of the season at the weekend in Lake Louise.
Baumann (Kiefersfelden) won silver in the Super-G in the title fights in Cortina d’Ampezzo in February, Sander (Ennepetal) silver in the downhill.
“I am confident, I think the form also fits, and I am happy that things are starting again now,” said Baumann in a message from the DSV. The German quintet for the races in Canada is completed by Josef Ferstl (Hammer), Simon Jocher (Garmisch) and Dominik Schwaiger (Königssee).
After one downhill on Friday and one on Saturday, the men in Lake Louise have a Super-G on Sunday. The five-time World Cup winner Thomas Dreßen will train again at the beginning of December at the earliest as a result of his knee operation and will not be able to contest a race before Christmas.
DSV nominated Andrea Filser (Wildsteig) and Marlene Schmotz (Leitzachtal) for the women’s giant slalom in Killington on Saturday. This duo will also start in the slalom on Sunday, where Lena Dürr (Germering) and Emma Aicher (Mahlstetten) will also hit the slopes.
