|Wendl-Arlt celebrate fourth victory this season|
Oberhof (pps) European runners-up Tobias Wendl-Tobias Arlt continue their success story in the post-Olympic winter. At the sixth stop of the Viessmann Luge World Cup series in Oberhof, Germany, the 2008 World Championship silver medallists already posted their fourth victory this season. Having a total of seven individual wins to their credit, Wendl-Arlt have further increased their lead in the overall standings.
The German team defeated Italy’s doubles’ with Christian Oberstolz-Patrick Gruber (0.039 seconds behind) as well as team-mates Toni Eggert-Sascha Benecken (0.194 seconds behind). With the third place in Oberhof, the newly formed doubles’ from Thuringia scored their career-best result.
Wendl-Arlt are currently heading the overall World Cup standings with 530 points to their credit, 45 points ahead of Oberstolz-Gruber. Austria’s Andreas Linger-Wolfgang Linger follow on third position (392 points).
Tobias Arlt (GER / 2010 European and 2008 World silver medallist)
“It’s great that we’ve won. But we’re not really happy, to say the truth. We’ve simply made too many mistakes in both runs. The track in Oberhof is one of the most demanding tracks and in addition it was rather bumpy today.”
Christian Oberstolz (ITA / 2008 European champion)
“We’ve botched it ourselves. After the mistake in the lower part of the track I just knew that we would not win here.“
Toni Eggert (GER / 2001 World Cup 3rd-placed)
“In the first run, going into turn 13, we’ve made a great mistake. But of course it’s a great advantage to compete in front of a home crowd.”
