Pärson second coup – Podium at Tarvisio

February 21st, 2009

Changing conditions

Being more curvy and challenging, the slope “Pista di Pampero” at Tarvisio presented itself in a different way compared to the World Cup events two years ago. These characteristics fitted perfectly to the skills of the Swedish super star, allowing her to finish among the top three.

Qualities of a Downhill racer

Faster conditions in the beginning of the race made it difficult for the HEAD racer having a late starting position and only few of the favorites were able to compensate this handicap. Showing an impressive performance in the fast turns and the flat sections Anja Pärson finished third. With one Super-G still to come she has the chance to triumph once again at Tarvisio.
