Alpine Ski World Cup 2017/18: Levi racing calendar and direct TV schedules

The Alpine Skiing Team will stage in Levi, Finland, with female and male slalom on 11 and 12 November 2017.

The Alpine Ski World Cup started with a podium for Italy among women. Sölden was 3rd place in Manuela Moelgg in the inaugural giant, with the blue behind German winner Viktoria Rebensburg, and Frenchman Tessa Worley. The 34-year-old of San Vigilio di Marebbe is training in Val Senales with his teammates, including Chiara Costazza and Irene Curtoni, the most anticipated in the slalom in Finland. As for men, however, because of the adverse weather conditions the race did not take place. The male debut is therefore sent back to Levi, where the second white circus seasonal appointment is expected in a few days.

Among the blues will also be Alex Vinatzer, just eighteen, who will make his absolute debut in the World Cup. Next to him are veterans like Patrick Thaler and Manfred Moelgg.

The #Sci Alpino CdM will move to Finland on the weekend of November 11 and 12, 2017. On Saturday we will have the female slalom, with the 1st run at 9.55 and the 2nd run at 12.55. A year ago he won Mikaela Shiffrin, with the American who preceded Swiss Wendy Holdener and Slovak Petra Vlhová. On Sundays, the men will try to get close to the narrow poles of the Levi Black track. The 1st run will kick off at 9.55, and the 2nd run will be at 12.55. Austrian midfielder Marcel Hirscher set himself up last year, ahead of the national team Michael Matt and Italian Manfred Moelgg.

A few days after the races, some of the blues expected on the track were interviewed. Stefano Gross said he was confident of his physical condition in view of Levi’s slalom, a little less Giuliano Razzoli, who said he would expect an uphill season, but the incentives to do good are all. In the expectation of finding the results in the race, let’s remember that he definitely said goodbye to the Bode Miller races. The US will no longer return to the track, announcing his retirement from competitions.

Alpine skiing, Marcel Hirscher falls into training. Malleol fracture and six-week stop for the Austrian

 

The Olympic season for Marcel Hirscher begins in the worst ways. The Austrian champion, winner of the last six editions of the Alpine Ski World Cup, bolted a blade on the first day of training on the Mölltal glacier, remaining a bad fall.

The world champion in charge of slalom and giant was immediately transported to the hospital in Salzburg, where he was diagnosed with the fracture of the left ankle malleolus. It should not be done, however, it will be obliged to carry the plaster for 6 weeks.

Really a bad hit for Hirscher: an injury at this stage of preparation could turn out to be peculiar in view of approaching the PyeongChang 2018 Games. It is difficult for the Austrian to force the time to come back to the world cup giant in Sölden Next October 29. The primary goal of one of the greatest skiers of all time, in fact, remains that Olympic gold so far barely escaping.
