The first speed events in Europe – Super-G and Downhill - are on their way. FIS Race Director Günter Hujara and Technical Director Thomas Gurzeler had but great things to say about the “great conditions” on the Saslong during tonight’s First Team Captain Meeting.
Swiss-born Mr. Gurzeler is back as TD after serving in that role three years ago and stated that the OC has done a great job in preparing the slope.
Race Director Rainer Senoner added that based on the weather forecast, conditions should be optimal on during the Gardena-Gröden racing week.
FIS Race Director Mr. Hujara reminded everyone of the discussion on athletes’ safety initiated at last year’s first Team Captain Meeting. At that time, the newly minted Athletes Working Group focused on safety had its inaugural meeting. “We have come a long way since last year” says Mr. Hujara.
