January 15th, 2007

Again 2007 the Head-Tyrolia team has given a proof of its strength. On the Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen (SUI) which is one of the most difficult and challenging slopes at all the Head-Tyrolia athletes ranked on positions one, two, four and five. The victory was scored by Bode Miller from the USA, local hero Didier Cuche became second.

Miller at his maximum

The classic in Wengen offered anything on Saturday, January 13th 2007: Falls, interruptions and spectacular runs of the stars. Bode Miller was once more the best of all. With an incomparable daring deed the US-American was at his maximum and sometimes exceeded the limit. Especially the difficult Brueggli-S was managed terrificly by Miller and he ran the best line. So he was unbeatable and could celebrate his 25th World Cup victory.

Top result for Cuche

Didier Cuche was barely defeated once more. The Swiss showed a strong race, too and was beaten only by Miller at the end. In doing so the Head-Tyrolia racer demonstrated his excellent shape and stressed that he is a candidate for the downhill World Cup. Two further skiers of the Head-Tyrolia team missed the podium by a hair. Swiss Ambrosi Hoffmann as well as Marco Buechel from Liechtenstein arrived in the finish on positions four and five.
