Garmisch – Wednesday, October 13, 2021, 4:01 p.m.
Thomas Dreßen will miss the first speed events of the coming Olympic season and possibly also larger parts of the coming World Cup winter.
He will not compete in the races in Lake Louise and Beaver Creek on the last weekend in November and the first weekend in December, says the 27-year-old when dressing up for the German Ski Association (DSV) in Schwäbisch Hall on Wednesday. The races in Val Gardena are also not an issue.
After the World Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo last February, Dreßen underwent an operation on his previously damaged right knee, in which free pieces of cartilage were removed and the cartilage smoothed.
“My plan is that we start skiing at the beginning of December. In the middle and end of November we will have tests that will show how strong I am and how stress-resistant the knee is. Only when I pass will I get it.” Go for skiing. “
When he will be able to compete again is still a little in the stars, said the 2018 Kitzbühel winner. Dreßen had almost completely missed the previous World Cup winter because of a hip operation.
In the World Cup downhill he started after just a few days of training in the snow and finished 18th.
