Soelden was indisputably a great show as usual, with a few surprises and some outstanding performances by those athletes that had finished strong last season. While the winners know they have started off on the right foot, those behind them also know that there is still work to be done to get to the top of the podium.
So, the three-week break, before the World Cup Tour heads to Levi, Finland on 23-24 November, enables athletes to fine-tune the last details. But that’s not all!
Most athletes are also busy with their own lives off the slopes, engaging in a various range of activities. So what are our heroes up to during these weeks between Soelden and the Northernmost race? Discover it below!
There are those who, after winning their first World Cup race at 17, return home for the last week of school. We also want to wish her a fast recovery from a bone bruise injury that will force her to skip the next Giant Slalom in Killington.
There are other ones who take advantage of the short break to relax and engage in sponsors activations.
Some make kind concessions to the media, giving interviews in German!
Working on some ninja skills with his partner in crime after a career-best result in Soelden is also an option!
Finally, while most athletes prepare for the season ahead, the retired ones are also pretty active.
Felix Neureuther was busy presenting his friend and former rival Marcel Hirscher with the ‘Austrian Sports Personality of the Year’ award for the sixth time.
Lindsey Vonn meanwhile announced the imminent release of her latest documentary “The Final Season”. The documentary will be available on 26th November on HBO. Enjoy the trailer in her instagram post below.
Someone else decided to write an autobiography, with English and German version to be made available soon!
