The words of Dominik Paris

It’s a relaxed Dominik Paris ready for the start of the speed season that will begin next Friday 25 with the first downhill, which will be followed by two super-Gs on Saturday and Sunday. Three hundred points up for grabs in three days that may give a first impression of the values in the field.

“I try to go fast,” he said during time trials on the Men’s Olympic in Lake Louise, “then we’ll see what happens in the races. I have not lost the dream of winning the Downhill Cup, I believe in it. However, to win you have to be consistent in your results throughout the season, and it’s not easy given also the increasingly fierce competition from rivals.”

“We had a good training at Copper Mountain where there was winter snow and a lot of cold. They were good training days and now the adrenaline is rising for the start of the races. I think starting with Lake Louise is really optimal because you are racing immediately on winter snow and it is the best condition to prepare for the more technical races that will come later.”
