Super-G World Champion Patrick Staudacher clocked the best time among Italian athletes with a lag of 30/100 of a second. However, he was not totally satisfied with his run and mourned the time he must have lost on the Ciaslat section.
“It hurts a little that my run wasn’t flawless, just as in Beaver Creek. But at least I know that I can compete at the highest level” says Patrick Staudacher. As for his gap to Cuche: “I’ve lost the time on Ciaslat”.
