| For the moment, the snow is quite wet and soft. If it was hard or icy, it would be a perfect downhill for my style, because I could fight even harder.
| I won a great giant slalom in Japan last week, and it gave me momentum for this final part of the season.
| I still have more to fight for in the coming years.
| I was quite moved to see this huge crowd which attended the ceremony in the middle of the town.
| If I remain healthy, I can win more races, but I don't think so much about setting new records. I'm already proud to have become the leading Austrian World Cup racer.
| As the time goes by, you change, your learn new things, your attitude is different. For the moment, I'm still enjoying ski racing so much that it would be difficult for me to think about ending my career.
| This time, I took it easier. I stood up before it so as not to crash again.
| It's funny to have become an elegant skier now. But my drive is still the same.
| It was really tough to race the GS a day after the downhill, but that's over now. I'm looking forward for the rest of the season which is also quite interesting.
| When I was a child, all I wanted was to enter the Austrian team and to compete on the World Cup tour. I had to fight hard to reach this. I wanted badly to win each race.
| I lost races because I wanted too much to win them in beating my rivals.
| One victory more or less doesn't make the difference for me now.
| I'm quite excited to think that I will run the Olympic race here next year.
| Franz Klammer was my great idol in my younger years.
| It's good to ski for fun, but I still want to win races as often as possible.
| I sat down with my trainers to check my past seasons and to see what could be done to keep me motivated and in good shape. I had to find a new motivation, a new momentum.
| At my age, you need to verify that everything is fine. I put a lot of pressure on my body, and I feel sometimes pain in my back and in my knees, so I have to be sure that I can keep on training hard before going on.
| Ski racing, especially downhill, is a dangerous activity and there are many accidents. It would be really too bad to lose everything because of a crash.
| There is no pressure on me, I can take a lot of risks in the coming weeks. I feel free to ski the way I decide on race-day because the overall title was not my main target this winter.
| I like to win. If I lose, I'm not very happy.
