Something beyond dreams has happened. Dominik Paris and Christof Innerhofer dominate the Stelvio and “slap” the world. First and second place in the most difficult and fast DH of the Men's World Cup, a wonderful fight between them, fought meter after meter and technically perfect. Paris is first with 1'55 "2, his teammate is second (+0.36) and the Swiss Beat Feuz third (+0.52).

Paris built his victory in the lower part of the track, where he used all his power and had the courage to pursue a dream. He was late if compared to Innerhofer who really skied perfectly in the upper part of the Stelvio. He was concentrated at the start, very fast in Canalino Sertorelli section, perfect on the curves of Fontana Lunga. Nobody skied like Christof in this first part. And it was not easy at all to stay in the race lines because of the undulations that did not allow skis to stay on the snow for over a quarter of the time. Paris was 22/100 late in the Carcentina part.

His recovery began that moment. And it wasn't easy, considering the hard work that this track requires. Where others started to feel tired legs, Dominik pushed on the accelerator, he cut the diagonal of Carcentina like a knife, he faced the San Pietro jump, he touched the top speed in the lower part (134.28 km / h) and gnashed when he began to see the finish line, in the La Konta part. His last curves in the shade were spectacular. An important sign showing how the Azzurro and probably the rest of the team, are in a very good athletic condition. A great sign for the upcoming Wengen and Kitzbuehel DH races.

Honor to the two Azzurri, who knew how to beat champions like the Austrians Kriechmayr, Franz and Mayer, and the Norwegian Svindal and Kilde. On this track you can't win by chance, there are too many difficulties to create a result out of the blue. Great experience and top competitiveness are needed.

The other Azzurri did well too. Matteo Marsaglia 19th (+2.17), Emanuele Buzzi 23rd (+2.28), and Mattia Casse 24th (+2.31). Unfortunately the Slovenian Klemen Kosi fell in the final part. A spectacular and dramatic fall. The first diagnosis is a suspected fracture of the nasal septum, facial trauma and a broken tooth. The athlete was promptly rescued and immediately transported by helicopter to the hospital of Sondalo (So) where further verification will be made.

The super-G is scheduled for tomorrow, at 11.45 on Raisport, same protagonists as the DH. It will be a great show, once again.
