Ninth in the Super-G at the Worlds this Wednesday in Méribel, Tessa Worley said she made small mistakes that prevented her from doing better. However, the Habs are delighted with the state of mind shown in this race in view of the giant slalom.
Tessa Worley didn’t know how to finish well. Starting well this Wednesday on the occasion of the Super-G of the world championships organized in Méribel, the skier from Grand-Bornand could not do better than ninth, 58 hundredths of a second behind Marta Bassino. ” These are small mistakes. I think everyone made small mistakes on this route, told the Habs at the microphone of France 2 a few minutes after its passage over the Roc de Fer. You really had to dare lines, dare to ski like an attacker. “Mistakes that Tessa Worley puts on the account of insufficient risk taking. “You really had to dare these lines but also assume technically,” she added. That’s a shame, there are one or two on which I have not resisted enough on my skis so it makes me late a little bit and makes me lose a little bit of speed. »

I feel like I have the right energy on the skis, I feel like it’s going in the right direction, added the skier from Grand-Bornand. I also have the right mindset. I really loved this moment that I experienced at the start, my sleeve, the adrenaline, the little butterflies in my stomach. We’re going to focus on the giant now. »
