The winner of the Super-G Didier Cuche believes that he won the race by squeezing more time on the Finish schuss.
“I am overjoyed with my victory. I turned it up a notch to make up for time lost at the earlier part of the race” says Didier Cuche. As for the narrow margin among the three podiums: “Bode Miller took ownership of this course last year winning by a substantial lead. I knew that I could win. Experience is critical here in Gardena-Gröden mastering the bumps without rounding them or hitting them directly. I also picked a fast ski. Experience coupled with materials was the critical factor.”
