Double pack in the downhill: On Friday and Saturday, the Ski World Cup is a guest in Wengen.

We accompany the traditional Lauberhorn race in the live ticker.

  • Alpine skiing: Departure in Wengen, Friday, 12.30 p.m.

  • There will be two downhill runs in Wengen on Friday and Saturday.

  • The DSV stars Romed Baumann, Josef Ferstl and Andreas Sander are fighting for the podium a few weeks before the Olympics.

  • We accompany the Lauberhorn race in the live ticker.

Wengen - A packed winter sports weekend is in the starting blocks: The speed specialists in the Ski World Cup * have to cope with a mammoth program - and only three weeks before the Olympics.

After yesterday's Super-G, the action continues on Friday (12.30 p.m.) and Saturday with two tough descents in Wengen.

The German hopes for a medal have gained a lot of self-confidence before the traditional Lauberhorn race and are good for the next surprise.

Wengen downhill in the live ticker: DSV stars in good shape - surprise before the Olympics?

Romed Baumann was only briefly annoyed about the wafer-thin missed bang before the Olympics.

"Mei, the hundredths will come back at some point," said the Vice World Champion about his strong fourth place in the thrilling World Cup Super-G in Wengen, and added with a mischievous grin: "Maybe we'll need them again this year..." Am best on the descent in Wengen.

Or at the Olympics in Beijing on February 8th, the next race in the second fastest discipline.

Baumann seems to have gotten in shape just in time - like Josef Ferstl, who finished sixth in the sixth win of the season for the Swiss wonder boy Marco Odermatt in front of the Norwegian Alexander Aamodt Kilde than he had since his Kitzbühel victory in 2019.

"January," said Ferstl with a grin, "was always a good month for me, this time we'll also take February with us." And a medal?

"We Germans can ski a bit," said Ferstl mischievously, and yes, he personally "can do a lot".

In addition, the upward trend comes at the “right time”.

In short: "Of course I'm happy."

Departure in Wengen: Classic Lauberhorn race in the live ticker

"That was really something for self-confidence again today," said Baumann after his best World Cup result so far this season.

The runner-up world champion was only three hundredths of a second behind third-placed Olympic champion Matthias Mayer from Austria.

Baumann now wants to take the “drive” with him to the descents in Wengen. 

Not so Andreas Sander, who had to line up ten places behind Simon Jocher in 33rd place.

The World Cup runner-up in the downhill once again drove far too despondent.

He can do better on Friday and Saturday: Then there is a race each in the supreme discipline at the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains.

You won't miss anything in our live ticker for the Lauberhorn race.
