For a little over a year ago, took Viktor Andersson his first and so far only victory in the world cup.
He won the championship in Arosa, the rest of the race was set, and Andersson got the win.
" I could scarcely understand that I won even when I stood on the podium. I was still the fastest, I won with almost two-tenths. It was a special feeling to stand at the top, I am eager to do more often.
today, the results indicate a different language. Series 45, 21 and 38 impresses not.
– a Little bit somewhat shady self-confidence to do that there is a bad suite.
the qualification round when the world cup moved to Idre.
– It will now. I have had good training sessions over the christmas and new year, said Viktor Andersson förhoppningsfullt ahead of the qualifiers.
He has been on a slalom, giant slalom and super-G in Vemdalen and freeriding in the mountains and hoped in that way to get back the feeling in skiing.
– There are many steps left to where I want to be but I take them all the time, it feels better and better.
But the qualifying went not as he had hoped. In this morning's qualifier was Viktor Andersson only 38 qualified not among the 32 that get to run Sunday's final.
although he 25:a and get to race on Saturday. But he was disappointed.
" no, No, no, it is just not. It is tough as hell, and it's so fucking boring, " he says to TT.
" I need to be able to go without thinking. Now, it goes so slow that I have time to think, and it is no good.
the Expectation of a lift came in the shame. Maybe it is the first on the Saturday it turns.
took Viktor Andersson on the to download the with pizza in Vemdalen, a visit to the bakery he would not like to skip.
– It is worth a detour. It is absolutely stunning, it is just to go there.
Viktor Andersson is the ”Svensson, Svensson” or ”Activities for Children”. In the rule order he later.
– It will be a tough Viktor after this season, " he says with an easy laugh.
be if you are to be successful in ski cross. It has Viktor Andersson got to feel, before the OLYMPICS in Sochi in 2014 he broke his leg and a shoulder injury held on to stop him from the OLYMPICS in Pyeongchang.
He ended up as number 29.
" It was a long shot that is not really held. When it starts to staple in the back you know that it is running. I am pleased that I went there and did my best but I wanted more than that. I had won a world cup and been second on another, and it's exactly the same people you compete against at the OLYMPICS.
He left the OLYMPIC village with the words ”now I'm going to go home and sleep a few days”.
"It was not so," he says with a laugh. I collided with a deer when I was driving from the airport home to Åre, it was a turbulent journey. But of course, then there was a few quiet days.
it is a tough sport with great risks is the 26-year-old from Vemdalen aware of.
the serious damage he is not afraid.
" I don't see it as a risk but as a way to win. As soon as you become afraid, I do not think you can do it in the right way, that is when it will crashes and becomes dangerous. Now it is a much safer sport than for five, ten years ago. Truckers have become less afraid, better at skiing, the technology on how we cum in mouth rolls and dampens hope. Before maybe I was more unsure of how it would go in some parts of the track. With the fear came the uncertainty in the skiing and then there will be collisions which you do not want.
Some real vildhjärnor think he världscupscirkusen managed without.
" It is clear that there are people who go harder than others, but the more professional the sport has become, the less risks you take for that damage because it is more worth to be able to go a whole världscupsäsong than winning a contest. I also believe that it is about respect, there is no one who does something completely crazy.
there were many riders who took the chance, but crashed.
– Where the stack-the front nose and put it all, then there will be more crashes. You leave with more respect in the world cup and it is usually the one who goes the fastest wins, so perhaps it was not before.
When it comes to OS he is hoping the third time's the charm.
" I saw how much the OLYMPIC games means, above all, for them it is good for. I saw André Myhrer and Frida Hansdotter win slalomgulden, it was a completely different fire that was lit in my chest for the next OS.
After the races in Idre leave the national team to Canada. In the beginning of February decided the world CUP in the united states.
Sweden has five seats, because Victor Öhling Norberg is the reigning world champion.
" of course, We are four Swedish guys in the world cup so where should I go.
