The toughest rival Beat Feuz

He was still not a serial winner, was in the descent, Beat Feuz in an Interview with this newspaper says. Still. The Swiss sees potential on the way to such. But he also knows that This series winner in downhill, there is no more him for a long time. There is none who drives his competitors into the ground is fact, such as the Marcel Hirscher in the technical disciplines for many years. The six times the Austrians won the small crystal globe in the giant slalom and in the Slalom.

As the descent is more balanced. 47 times the driver played in the past five winters, the slopes shut down, 15 different winners there were, more than in any other discipline. Five or more races are only four athletes: Dominik Paris (9), Kjetil Jansrud (7), Aksel Svindal (6) and Feuz with five Victories, but gained. And apart from Patrick küng's Golden at the 2015 world Cup, the victories at the major events of the parts of this Quartet. Feuz repeated 2017 Gold downhill, Jansrud 2019. In between, Svindal won the Olympic gold medal. At the end of last season, he stepped back. to be

the series winner, is in the descent is not easy. For Feuz not. On Saturday night the first departure of the winter on stands. And even without Svindal, the competition for the small crystal ball is huge. Feuz might win the trophy this season for the third Time in a row. This driver will be his biggest rival:

Dominik Paris
30, Italy, 16 world Cup victories, twelve in the exit catch.

He will probably squint with one eye to the technicians over there. And hope that the claw of the points. If it goes in the Slalom and giant slalom more balanced than in the past winters, then, Dominik Paris is also a contender for the overall world Cup. The Heavy Metal singer from the South Tyrol, anywhere is good, he likes it hard, icy, and pimples, he loves Kitzbühel, he loves Bormio. In good shape, Paris is almost unbeatable.

20 points separated Paris at the end of the last winter of Feuz in the fight for the small crystal ball. And it is not probably dare to claim that the Italians would have obtained the Emmental still would have been a departure played. Because it is precisely in the second half of the 2018/19 season, he was in a phenomenal Constitution, won after the turn of the year, three of the four runs. And at the world Championships, he won Gold in the Super-G.

Kjetil Jansrud
34, Norway, 22 world Cup victories, eight of them in the descent.

He is the world champion in this discipline, also, that is why he is here. And with the resignation of compatriot and buddy Svindal, he is also win riders in the man, under the active Speed with most of the world Cup. 22 there are, 6 even more than Paris. Most of his victories but Jansrud repeated in the downhill, but in the Super G. In the past five winters, he won an average of almost one in every three races, 10 out of 34 in number.

The friendly Norwegians are stacked deep. "Good," was the race of his preparation, "okay," his feeling in front of the first speed in Canada, he reports to the Portal skionline.ch. With the new Leader of the Norwegian Team, is expected, nevertheless, a as it will not only focus on the Super-G. Last season, he was held up for a long time a troublesome fracture in the Hand. World Cup Gold was there nevertheless.

Vincent Kriechmayr
28, Austria, four world Cup victories, two in the downhill.

Beat Feuz stopped the attacks from the Austrian speed team, in the last years. Whether you Reichelt, Hannes, Max Franz and Matthias Mayer came in. But there's also Vincent is Kriechmayr. On the Lauberhorn, he prevented in January Feuz’ home victory in Kitzbühel, he was well on the way, but failed in the Traverse just before the finish. The also had already cost Feuz valuable world Cup points.

Kriechmayr is despite a world Cup-silver in Super-G and Bronze in the downhill behind Feuz, Paris and Jansrud to be classified. The Austrians, however, are certain: The late bloomer from Linz, you can make a step, if necessary, also in this Winter. In an Interview with the NZZ Beat Feuz said, Kriechmayr is the measure of all things, what is technically brilliant skiing in the Speed range concerned. And also Kriechmayr finds himself: "I'm going better and better every year."

Aleksander Aamodt Kilde
27, Norway, three world Cup victories, two in the downhill.

the 27-year Kilde Aleksander Aamodt. He is in this discipline, in the experience accounts for so much, in the best age. Young enough to survive the above-mentioned older co-favorites. Old enough to know the pitfalls of the slopes of this world. And the season in which he is again with the old Material on the road, that could be, in which he emerges from a giant shadow. What is the Austrian Winter number 1 after Hirscher, for the Norwegians the same to Svindal.

Three world Cup victories has retracted Kilde so far, since most of the other top ahead of him, drivers something. And somehow, waiting for the man with the always enviable perfect hairstyle fit on the big breakthrough. Maybe it's this Winter so far. Feuz have been Kilde of the largest claimants on the small ball. And thus, to its closest rival.

you want to
Caviezel, Innerhofer, Mayer & co.

join in the conversation in order, the five biggest favorites are called. But the statistics show it: The departure is the most balanced discipline in the world Cup Ski men. Accordingly, the field of the podium contenders is. From the own stock, especially Mauro Caviezel has these claims, the Winter of 2018/19 was awarded to be the best, especially the Start-up succeeded him.

There is also the Austrian Matthias Mayer, two-time Olympic champion and his compatriot, Max Franz, who won a year ago at the start of the season, struggling with injuries. Or Thomas Dressen, the German, who missed the whole of last season, but before that in Kitzbühel triumphed – Christof Innerhofer, to be reckoned with in the classics is, and has, slowly but surely, enough of the fourth and fifth places. This field is expandable, it is clear, therefore, above all: It will not be boring.
