Sölden Results

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
1. Eberharter. - AUS
2. Covil. - FRA
3. Von Gruenigen - SUI
4. Aadmodt - NOR
5. Miller - USA

Miller lost a pole approx half way down the first run but was very fast on the second half of the first run. (maybe he's quicker without poles). After the first run Eberharter was just ahead of Miller by 11 tenths of a second. Both Eberharter and Miller made mistakes on the second run. Eberharter was the last to run and only just beat Covil by 13 tenths of a second.

I didn't realise that Stefan Eberharter had become an Australian citizen or should that be AUT after his name?

Why did 31 athletes start in the second run? World Cup rule (3.6) states only 30 will start....

Whygimf (did I get that correct?), possibly duplicate times in the first run?

Only if there was a tie for 30th... I'm confused...

Nice to see someone's paying attention and picked up on another one of my deliberate mistakes

Actually Bode was only 11/100 out after the first run. The first run results did not show a tie for 30th. J. P. Roy was shown in 31st, but got a second run. Maybe those lucky ones who could actually see it televised can shed some light on that.

Checking the Canadian Alpine web site, I read the following:

Roy, of Ste-Flavie, Que., and teammate Thomas Grandi, of Canmore Alta., both qualified on the bubble for the second run, then turned in superb performances to earn top-25 finishes, just 1/100th of a second apart. But Roy’s fate hung on the edge of Swiss skier Tobias Gruenenfelder, who challenged his first-run disqualification for hooking a gate.

Roy, who finished 31 in the first run, would not have qualified to race the second round. But the race jury upheld a protest by Canadian coach Thierry Meynet that Gruenenfelder had indeed straddled a gate.

“I’m the luckiest man in the history of Soelden,” said Roy, who had already been the final qualifier twice before at Soelden.

So that is the rest of the story...
