But those blustery conditions are making it difficult to retain maximum control
Bonhomme says Dolderer needs a healthy time to ensure a good match up in the head to head Round of 8
189kts through the Start Gate and Dolderer looking controlled and calm out there in the racetrack... he's error free so far and looking confident for a good time
A great start for Dolderer as he cruises through at 59.616 – it's a good time and penalty free. He advances to the Round of 8
A quick yodel celebration from Matthias there... we might be hearing more yodelling later today after such a solid performance. Dolderer looking really confident in the Styrian mountains today.
Wind just dropped slightly to 9-10kts
Arch cleared into the track and the Austrian is through at 188.8kts and he's looking steady but keeping his focus... it's working so far and the splits are in the green. Hannes HAS to keep it error free...
Confident and controlled and Hannes Arch is maintaining some speed on Kopfstein, the consistency is there and he's staying cool out there
Podlunsek now taking his turn in the racetrack. He's only in his second race in the Master Class and trailed behind the rest of the pack but consistency is key and Podlunsek will be looking to do his best performance today in the Round of 14...
it's a good steady run so far and penalty free... but he's just made a judgement error in Gate 12 and that's two seconds on the clock for Podlunsek! He passes the Finish Gate with 1:02.047
