World cup races in Austria, Kitzbuehel and Schladming, are the last two races before Olympic games. WC race in Kitzbuehel came after Croatian national championship in Alpine combined and SG in Kranjska gora. In KItzbuehel I raced once and in Schladming 4 times ( 3 times World cup and once World championsip).
I am satisfied with my performance in Kitbuehel, finished in 20th place, which is my best World cup result so far. First run I didn’t make a big mistake and fought from start to finish. I haven’t had especially good feeling but it was enough for top 30. I wasn’t content with just top 30 finish and I tried to attack second run. It was a good run except for mistake on one roll that cost me some time.
Day after the race we trained in Reiteralm to stay in rhythm and the next day was the race in Schladming. Unlike Kitzbuehel I couldn’t find right skiing in Schladming and I wasn’t fast enough. Run was pretty clean with no mistake but I just couldn’t find the pace throughout the run.
Positive experience in Kitzbuehel, but performance in Schladming indicates that I have a lot of work left to do to improve and that I need more than average run to finish top 30.
