2/11/19 10:54 AM Just a few minutes to the start. At 12 o'clock Blondin will be the first to go to the (shortened) descent. 2/11/19 10:51 AM As already mentioned: The shortened descent will of course meet the slalom specialists. Hello Marco Black, I'm looking at you! 2/11/19 10:47 AM There were few reasons for coming this season. Only one (out of two) combinations has been held so far. In Wengen, Schwarzer beat Muffat-Jeandet and Pinturault. 2/11/19 10:45 AM Also two Germans are at the start: Linus Straßer starts with number 33, Dominik Schwaiger with 41. Your chances? Low. Where Straßer can benefit from the shortened downhill - possibly there is even a place in the top 15 in it. 2/11/19 10:35 AM According to official start list today 56 runners are at the start. The combination will open the Frenchman Thomas Mermillod Blondin. 2/11/19 10:30 AM Defending champion Luca Aerni from Switzerland enters the race with start number 20. In normal racing, however, he should have nothing to do with the medal award. 2/11/19 10:29 AM 2/11/19 10:28 AM So the question about the favorite is a bit more open. We will see the medal candidates early in the descent: Marco Schwarz (car number 5), Alexis Pinturault (7), Victor Muffat-Jeandet (9) and Mauro Caviezel (13) are the most frequently mentioned by the experts when it comes to the contenders Gold, silver and bronze goes. Top favorite is the Frenchman Pinturault. 2/11/19 10:24 AM Like the women, the biggest name is not included in the men's category: Olympic champion Marcel Hirscher refuses to start. 2/11/19 10:12 AM And so that we are perfectly prepared for the expected start of the game, there's a bit of reading material: The combination was once the supreme discipline, meanwhile, they are threatened with being thrown out of the World Cup schedule. Our colleague Marcus Krämer has already summarized the discussion in the aftermath of the women's combination decision. 2/11/19 10:08 AM It should actually start at 12 o'clock. 2/11/19 9:42 AM A strong wind is blowing on Åreskutan. At 11 o'clock the jury meets again to see if it will start at 12 o'clock. 2/11/19 9:08 AM Welcome to today's decision in the Swedish town of Åre - the combination winner of the men will be sought at the Alpine Ski World Championships. And there are weather-related immediately the first bad news: The start of the departure has been pushed from 11 o'clock to 12 o'clock, the slalom starts at 15.30 o'clock.
