        <p>Vincent Kriechmayr confirmed his role as a favorite and won the World Cup gold in Super-G in Cortina d'Ampezzo on Thursday.  <a href="https://www.de24.news/"><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="https://www.de24.news/a1/de24.png" alt="© www.de24.news" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; 29-year-old from Upper Austria won in 1: 19.41 minutes, seven hundredths of a second ahead of the Tyrolean Romed Baumann, who is now starting for Germany.  Bronze went to Frenchman Alexis Pinturault (+0.38 seconds).</p>            

Baumann, who comes from Hochfilzen, presented the German ski team with a historic medal.  The  35-year-old veteran had switched from Austria to DSV just under two years ago, he achieved the best German World Cup result ever in a Super-G and the first medal in a speed event since Florian Eckert in 2001 (bronze).

In the end, Mayer missed his first World Cup medal by 22 hundredths of a second. © www.de24.news The  other two Carinthians Max Franz and Christian Walder were eliminated.

Walder started the race as number one and, like his successors Loic Meillard and Mauro Caviezel (both SUI), failed at the same point – the vertigine jump after almost 20 seconds of driving time.

This is what they said after the race:


Gold: Vincent Kriechmayr (AUT).

That was not an easy situation. I knew it was a difficult passage. I already started the jump. That was a hundred meters of drift, I've never been like that Driving life, that worked out really well today. That's what makes the sport that you have to improvise in Super-G every now and then. I was glad that I got through it so well. It got pretty close with Romed downstairs. "

Silver: Romed Baumann (GER).

It was partly tactical to drive, you weren't allowed to risk senselessly. In the lower part, I knew that I have strengths on flat terrain and when it is such undulating terrain. It is an incredible story. It was all easy and fun. "

Bronze: Alexis Pinturault (FRA).

                Bronze: Alexis Pinturault (FRA).             </figcaption></figure><br/><strong>Alexis Pinturault (FRA / Bronze):</strong> "It was very difficult today, very complicated, you had to drive a bit intelligently. I didn't feel that good. I'm very happy that I'm on the podium."<br/><strong>Matthias Mayer (AUT / 6.):</strong> "I definitely took out too much, I drove over the jump with caution. I lost the time. If everyone had driven the way it looked after the tour, we would all have stood outside like the first three. Man had to change completely, had to reduce the speed more. Vinc got it great. He really deserved it. "<br/><strong>Christian Walder (AUT / retired):</strong> "I wouldn't say that the course is shit. You should have had a little more brain driving, as Vinc did. I didn't know that with the one. That pokes me. I have planned a lot, I felt good, unfortunately it turned out to be shit. "<br/><strong>Max Franz (AUT / divorced):</strong> "<a href="https://www.de24.news/"><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="https://www.de24.news/a1/de24.png" alt="© www.de24.news" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; mistake was four goals above, I couldn't recover myself over the slope. What a shame, I really liked it today. I drove away well upstairs. You saw during the inspection that it would be a difficult passage. That the Jump goes so far and the pace is so high, we were all a bit wrong. You have to be able to drive it, I risked too much. Vinc drove it cleanly. "
