Europacup Downhill Prize-Giving Ceremony
The prize-giving ceremony is over and the top 5 racers couldn’t have been happier.
Daniel Danklmaier was visibly moved as he accepted his first Hahnenkamm trophy. At the press conference he remarked:
“It was a close one, but I’m so happy about this victory! The Streif has always been my favourite course and my next goal is to participate in the World Cup this weekend.“
Swiss racer Nils Mani came second and was in a positive mood after the race: “It wasn’t a perfect run but, in the end, I didn’t lose first place – I won second place!“
Lars Roesti took third place and explains that he hadn’t been banking on a podium spot: “I’ve really improved in comparison to the training and I just felt great during the race.” After this achievement, he would like to apply for the World Cup.
A Kitzbühel “Gams“ trophy was also presented to Christof Brandner (GER) and Florian Schieder (ITA), the fourth and fifth ranked racers.
