Stefania Demetz: The Team Work Paid Off

"I saw a Tight-knit team..."

We enjoyed it as much as we suffered for it. Another successful World Cup in Val Gardena/Gröden can be filed away. Among the many challenges this year (i.e., lack of snow and warm temperatures), the Saslong Classic OC has pulled off the unimaginable to get the track in shape. It was a race against time, and the entire ski circuit is thankful for what we did to stage the regular Downhill and Super-G races.
