I think it's stupid to draw anything from the training runs, the course is completely different + (as Dreßen said before the race) the snow conditions completely changed (much more agressive), but i see that you are not willing to talk about facts, so why not save us both some time?

So you seriously think Hirscher had the same conditions as Kilde, Bennett and Caviezel? :wall:

As I said, track has been getting gradually worse, which I think it’s pretty obvious to see.

Sorry I don't see facts that support your thesis. But you have the right for your own opinion.

Rewatch the race and also look at the wind that accompanied Bennett and Kilde. I mean even some slalom specialists are in front of Bennett.

 

So how are you going to deny that bib 2 wasn’t better than bibs 14-20

Do you really think that the wind had any influence on the eventual medallists? Do you really think that Hirscher should be much more than 0.2-0.3 s ahead of Hirscher on a course like that? Even if Hirscher and Dreßen both would have been 0.5 seconds slower, than what exactly would have changed? Gold/silver still would have been between Hirscher and Pinturault and bronze probably between Schwarz, Aerni, Muffat-Jandet and maybe someone else. The speed guys never had a medal chance today.

Von Appen makes million mistakes and still less than 2 secs behind. Yeah, wind has no influence. :lol:

Von Appen is a well-known specialist who you'd clearly expect to finish close to the top. Obviously.

Too bad that Canada will kick him out of top 30.

In case you missed the training, it had different wind conditions as well. So it's nothing to take too important. Not to mention that it was just a training, they were still testing.

 

The course today was basically a Super-G and Hirscher is good in Super-G. Anyway, with this short Downhill, no Speed pilot would have a Chance for a medal anyway.
