Austria Off To Worst Downhill Start In 25 Years - Westport News









Austria

Font Page 1 of 1 VIENNA (AP) Without a top-three finish in the first three races, the Austrian downhill team is having its worst start to a World Cup season in 25 years. Even with two-time World Cup downhill champion Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway sidelined because of a torn Achilles tendon, the their website former "Wunderteam" has failed to make any impact. Hannes Reichelt was ninth in Lake Louise last month. Then Max Franz in Beaver Creek and Olympic champion Matthias Mayer in Val Gardena both came in seventh for the team's best results, making it the poorest showing in http://www.kiwibox.com/vitonmis/blog/entry/121311785/etf-preview-etfs-futures-weaker-following-ppi-data-consum/?pPage=0 pre-Christmas races since 1989. After harsh criticism by greats Stephan Eberharter and Michael Walchhofer in the Austrian media, and with six weeks left before the world championship downhill in Beaver Creek, the team wants to get back on track in the final downhill of 2014 at Santa Caterina Valfurva, Italy, on Sunday. "During the start of the season they haven't taken their chances," head coach Andreas Puelacher said. "Now the guys are starting to take more risks. It won't be long until we are back among the best." According to Puelacher, who took over from Mathias Berthold this season, it's all about minor issues. "If we avoid the small mistakes, then we'll see fireworks soon," the coach said, adding his racers have had good split times and been fast in parts of the races.
