MARIO MATT WINS FIRST PODIUM OF THE SEASON

Congratulations to our racer Mario Matt (AUT)! Second place in  Levi (FIN)! 

After two fast runs at the first World Cup slalom of 2013/14, the slalom specialist from Arlberg (AUT) crossed the finish line as the runner-up.
Although he was only 0.62 seconds behind Marcel Hirscher, the Blizzard & Tecnica athlete has set a higher target. “It’s only perfect when you’re at the very top”, he pointed out. “I even know from training that I can be faster in the steep than Marcel.” 
The 34 year old is the oldest slalom racer, to win a place on the podium and lands an entry in the record books.

The local youngster Santeri Paloniemi (FIN) scored with two solid runs a strong 24th rank. 

On saturday, the Blizzard & Tecnica World Cup team had another reason to celebrate: Susanne Riesch (GER) made her comeback to the FIS World Cup after a long period of injuries! After barely missing the second run, she´s confidently looking forward to qualify for the olympic games in Sotchi.
