Finally on the podium

Hans Knauss, “I’m very satisfied”
Hans Knauss has been racing in the World Cup on Saslong since 1995. “When I was 16 I faced this slope in an FIS race, and I’ve been captivated by it ever since”, remembers today’s third place winner. “ It wasn’t easy for me after my falls at the beginning of the season, but I took a chance and did well, so I’m very pleased”, says Knauss who has always done very well in Val Gardena but has never made it to the podium, until today.
