Paris best time in World Cup downhill training ahead of Franz and Feuz


        Dominik Paris is in the final training for the men's World Cup downhill on Sunday in Cortina d'Ampezzo (11.00 a.m., live ORF 1).  Set up the best time.  <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a>&nbsp;The&nbsp; South Tyrolean was 0.13 seconds ahead of Max Franz, 0.36 ahead of Beat Feuz from Switzerland and 0.43 ahead of Otmar Striedinger.  Super G world champion Vincent Kriechmayr followed in eleventh place, Matthias Mayer in 16. This ÖSV quartet was then also nominated for the medal decision, Daniel Hemetsberger had to watch.        </p><div>
        <p>After the first training session on Friday, the section before the Vertigine jump, which was criticized by many athletes, was implemented and the pace increased, and gates were also moved in the traverse.  "Often you just have to say a little something and I dared to do that yesterday," said Paris.  "It looked good today, with the speed you can go through almost anything by train."  He expects an exciting and close race, because it is a short descent and many are in a good mood.</p>            

Kriechmayr found it “much more pleasant to drive”, but the day before he had held back criticism in contrast to Paris and Feuz, because it is not easy to always correctly assess the speed on a new route right from the start. After the gold medal, he might not have the pressure, but he still wants to collect medals. “I’m very happy, it will be a close race for sure. It is not the longest descent, it could be quite a slaughter.”

Mayer said he still had video studies ahead of him. “It’s also restless and bumpy, you didn’t see it that way during the tour. Routine doesn’t help you down here as much as it does on a downhill run that is in the World Cup every year. That’s why the circle of favorites is probably a bit bigger.”

Franz went into the group of favorites after the training performance. “Watching videos and preparing a good plan for tomorrow is, I think, the best recipe down here,” said the Carinthian. His compatriot Striedinger was also able to leave the finish area satisfied after the training. “ The  slopes are good for me, the snow is good for me, the weather is good for me. Everything is fine. I feel good, that’s good, because if I feel good, I can attack. I’ll do that for sure tomorrow.”
