Paris and the Lauberhorn slope: “There are two special places”

On Wednesday the final training for the infamous Lauberhorn descent took place in Wengen. Dominik Paris then revealed the peculiarities of this slope.

Bormio winner Cyprien Sarrazin from France set the best time in the second downhill training session in the Swiss winter sports resort on Wednesday.

Sarrazin was 1 seconds faster than the Swiss Justin Murisier in 45,87:0,35 minutes on a shortened route - he started just above the Hundschopf. Mattia Casse took third place, 0,41 seconds behind. The Piedmontese, who finished third last winter, once again demonstrated his good Wengen feeling.

Second best Azzurro on Wednesday was Dominik Paris, who used the training as usual to get to know the characteristics of the slope better. After his trip he revealed: “There are several important passages, but two places are special. You can't drive them wrong: the 'S' and the dog's head edge.” However, the latter is likely to be less important in the shortened descent on Thursday.

In any case, Paris was not entirely satisfied with the slopes on Wednesday. “The track isn’t ideal, it’s a bit broken. Let's hope that the conditions on the descent are right and I can reach my full potential," Paris is quoted as saying by the Italian winter sports association.

Florian Schieder finished the last training session in 1,76th place, 24 seconds behind, while Christof Innerhofer was 43rd (+2,98 seconds).
