is a real acid test.

And the contenders for the overall World Cup want to set their first exclamation mark in Austria.

Alpine skiing: Marta Bassino wins the women's giant slalom in Sölden

With the giant slalom in

Sölden

, the 2020/21 men's world cup in alpine skiing will open on October 18, 2020.

The day before the women started the new season with a giant slalom in Sölden, but the German women were disappointed.

On the Rettenbach glacier in Sölden, the German technology specialists Stefan Luitz and Alexander Schmid want to start the season better than they did last year.

Alpine skiing today in the live ticker: Stefan Luitz looks confidently to Sölden

In 2019 Luitz was 16th, Schmid only ended up in 27th place.

On Sunday Schmid will take to the track in 20th place, Luitz has start number 22.

The fact that the start of the 2020/21 World Cup in Alpine skiing will be

more successful

for the

German Ski Association

is entirely possible thanks to the good preparation despite Corona.

“We completed very, very good training units in Saas-Fee.

I tried to trust myself more and to drive more direct and cheeky again.

That is my goal for the season too.

I need the bolder line, the attacking position, ”said Stefan Luitz, who for many years was one of the best giant slalom riders in the world, but had problems in the preseason.

The 28-year-old from Allgäu got through the summer well and without injuries and expressed himself confident about the new season in the press conference outside Sölden, in which chiemgau24.de * was also involved.

In addition to Luitz, Alexander Schmid is supposed to hold up the German flags in the giant slalom.

Schmid also had to struggle with health problems again and again in the past season.

While the Eppstein-Barr virus plagued him last year, things went well for the 26-year-old from Oberstdorf this summer.

Alpine skiing: Schmid is relieved, Gratz is looking forward to his second World Cup race

“I was able to train normally and well all summer.

I was able to do every training session.

I am very happy that everything was and is much easier than last year.

Now what counts is that I feel very good physically and healthily, ”said Schmid in advance of the season opener in Sölden.

Fabian Gratz secured third place for the German Ski Association in Sölden in the internal qualification.

The anticipation of the 23-year-old is correspondingly great.

“I think it's really good that I will drive my second World Cup race in Sölden!

Sölden is something very special: the first race of the season, the starting signal for winter.

In the past few years I have often watched live or on TV.

Now I'll be at the start myself in a few days - that's just cool. "

The Frenchman will be one of the top favorites again this year in Sölden and in the battle for the overall World Cup.

In addition to Pinturault, the Norwegians

Henrik Kristoffersen

and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde also have the large crystal ball in their sights.

While last year's overall World Cup winner Kilde is not one of the favorites in Sölden, Kristoffersen is one of the top candidates for the opening win.
