Once the problem with the back was eliminated, Mathieu Faivre left for Ushuaia: "I have to do a lot of work"
He is one of the most anticipated gigantists next season, but preparation has not started in the best way.Mathieu Faivre, in fact, had to stop at the end of July, after the first training on the snow, due to a strong bruise suffered by the L4 vertebra. Considering the delicacy of a back injury at that time, the '92 transalpine class wanted to calmly recover, also questioning its participation in the long trip to Argentina.
Reserves released only in the past, with the 27-year-old from Isola 2000 starting Sunday in the direction of Ushuaia, a few days later than his specialty colleagues, starting with Alexis Pinturault, practically in conjunction with the slalomists.
"I put myself to the test for two days in Zermatt and decided that I could get on the plane - Faivre confirmed Thursday night - I still have a lot of work to do and I don't know how long it will take to ski at a high level."
A little 'concern remains, so that the technicians of the French national team have chosen a personalized program for Mathieu, at least for the first weeks at Cerro Castor, although there should be no doubt about the presence for the seasonal opening of Solden, the next 27 October.
