I did not open that hard in the first lap but I was some
3 seconds faster than the other guys on the podium and that
might be the difference in the finish. I felt very good
I started slower in the first lap and continuously sped
up. Its the best start of the Tour we have ever had.
I have to thank to our wax technicians. They did a great
job and we had the fastest skis. I feel very much relieved.
Its been a lot if pressure on the results.
I think I kept the momentum from pre-Christmas. Today I
did not open that hard. I was increasing the speed. Im
very happy for the podium result. For the whole Tour I hope
to be fighting for a top 3.
