"That was an awesome way to finish the year," said HEAD Racing Director Rainer Salzgeber. "It went perfectly for us. Unfortunately Beat Feuz made a mistake that put him out of the race for the podium. Our team did a great job. Vincent Kriechmayr races with a slightly different plate. That means he doesn't have as many skis to choose from, and make things a bit more challenging for him." Vincent Kriechmayr was already back on track for success in the Super-G on Tuesday. The Austrian athlete raced to the podium for the first time this season in second place. It was the 16th podium finish in the World Cup for the 29-year-old, and his eleventh in the Super-G.
