Accordingly, the race board-Ass is motivated and focused for this important race. “I have had good experiences with Rogla and won my first major international title there,” said Grabner. “I want to make it similar this time and finish on the podium. I want to qualify for Sochi!” In the meanwhile the carving specialist prepares with his two World Cup colleagues Justin Reiter (USA) and Masaki Shiba (JPN) in Lienz. “The temperatures are similar in Rogla.
