Cortina’s Super-G “yes” promises a super battle

Only today the Americans resolved reservations about his participation in Sunday’s race: 37 points margin on Vlhova, Goggia at -197 and with Garmisch (after Kronplatz) in his favour. There will be no Riddler, stopped by Covid after the podium at Altenmarkt Zochensee.
