Svindal already built a great platform for big crystal globe. Hirscher is his only threat but skiing more or less just two disciplines won't get it done for him like last year when he got lucked with Kostelic's injury in the moment when Ivica already had one hand on globe
Well, now Hirscher has went past. And there are anymore eight speed events compared to ten technical events.
Hopefully Svindal can raise his giant slalom skiing and do well in the two combined races. If Hirscher keeps his level, that's the only way Svidal can beat him in overall points.
