Val Senales will be the beating heart of Italian training the week before the start of the World Cup in Solden.
An improvement on the “Leo Gurschler”, a few days after the start of October 23-24 in Rettenbach, which is foreseen by the project that, from today until the weekend, will bring the sprinters Alberto Ghidoni and Raimund Plancker, from Dominik Paris and Christof Innerhofer. In recent days, most of the blue technicians have climbed the glacier to work on the slope of the queen of the city of South Tyrol. In the microphones of the “Alpin Arena Senales”, thanks to the collaboration of Karin Tscholl, here are the thoughts of Gianluca Rulfi and Roberto Lorenzi, the technical directors of the national women’s team and the men’s team slalomgigantisti, about the preparation of the track and more.
“We will go up with all the athletes, giving priority to those who have to prepare Soelden – Rulfi’s words – What do we expect from the season? Well, 2022 may be like the magic 2021 for Italy in sports: the boys have shown that they deserve the medals we will try to get at the Olympics, but first it will be a World Cup that will be tackled in the best possible way. ” .
Lorenzi emphasizes how “we help each other, including speed technicians, to prepare Leo Gurschler. In addition, Austria is also with us as they participate in the Val Senales project.
Another important year awaits us after the World Cup at home, but we are not only thinking about the Olympics. It will also be the time of restart for tourism, I really hope for a winter in freedom for all, with the possibility of skiing and mountain fun. It would be great and I believe that the solutions that are found go in that direction “.
