– This is completely unreal. I really just tried giving it my all. I thought I had blown it when I made a mistake down the trail, said Source NRK.
– Before the season was my goal to reach the top ten in the world in super G. It is absolutely crazy to be here.
Kilde will conclude his season with giant slalom on Saturday.
– This shows that we are doing a good job. It’s extreme. What a day for Norway. Aleksander really deserved to win. I’m super happy on his behalf, Jansrud said to NRK.
