Anna Gasser has made a name for herself as one of the world’s best snowboarders, capped by winning gold last year in PyeongChang.

She talked to The Red Bulletin about her journey from a budding gymnast to a groundbreaker on snow.

- Now 27, her first sporting foray was into the world of gymnastics where she quickly realised she was never going to better the world’s best. “When I was 13 or 14 years old, I was really into gymnastics. I also thought I was pretty talented. But I realised that the best girls were light years ahead of me. I knew that I would never be able to beat any of them, no matter how hard I tried. I didn’t want to waste my time doing something I would only ever be average at. I had to find something else – something where I could compete with the best.”

- So, aged 17 she switched her attention to snowboarding and worked as a babysitter to afford a flight to America after completing school, eating the cheapest food possible to save money and pursue her snowboarding passion.

Her mother Lisbeth recalled: “We thought a year in America would look good on her CV and be positive for her when she went to university. We didn’t know until afterwards that she spent the whole time snowboarding.”

- Her breakthrough moment came in 2013 when she became the first woman ever to land a cab double 900. Her father Peter remembered: “She did it all herself without any help from the ski federation or anyone else.”

- The tricks keep on coming, most recently at the start of this season when she became the first woman to land a cab triple 1260. As her manager Sani Alibabic explained: “Anna is so strong technically that she could stay at the same level for the next two or three years, and still be up there with the best. But she’s not satisfied with that. She always wants to get better.”

- Ominously for her rivals, she claims that winning gold in PyeongChang last February has made her even better. “I am at my best when I don’t have to be good,” she said. “And since I won the Olympics I am generally more relaxed on the board.”

- To help keep on top of the stress of competing and the expectation, she listens to Harry Potter audiobooks as she has done since she was a young girl. She explained: “Harry Potter audiobooks always calm me down when things get stressful. It was the same when I was a kid.”

- As for what’s next on the horizon for Gasser, she said: “I will keep riding contests but I also want to start filming, doing tricks in the backcountry, sliding rails in the city – all those tings I have never had time for. I love this sport so much that I don’t want it to ever become boring."

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Austrian star Thiem eyes Grand Slams
French Open finalist reflects on breakthrough and targets 'big three'.

Austrian Dominic Thiem lines up in the first tennis Grand Slam of 2019 on Tuesday night when the seventh seed's Australian Open quest starts off against Frenchman Benoît Paire at the Margaret Court Arena.

We caught up with the 25-year-old to reflect on an encouraging 2018 season, that included a French Open final at Roland Garros, and look ahead to what could be his Grand Slam breakthrough year.

The Australian Open is fast approaching. Are you confident of going beyond Round 4 for the first time?

If you think about the fourth round before the first one, you’re probably out before the second. Of course, you look at the draw but you quickly learn as a young player to focus on each round as it happens. That’s the secret of the big players – they take every match, every round and every opponent 100% seriously.

The so called ‘big three’ have dominated the Slams the past two years. Could 2019 be the year that changes?

We try. Nadal, Federer and Djokovic are certainly three of the best tennis players of all time and they probably also are three of the best overall athletes of the past 10 years. They are really, really of outstanding calibre, but you see that we can more and more often challenge them. We are not too far off.

Who are the players to watch out for in 2019? Are you expecting big things from the likes of Tsitsipas, Zverev, Khachanov, Medvedev and Coric?

That’s a pretty good selection, yes. These players have all already shown what they can do. They can win a Master or Grand Slam at any time.

How much did reaching the French Open final in 2018 motivate you to go on and win Grand Slams in the future?

A lot – and when you reach the final, you know that reaching the next step is a possibility but it took me a while to see that. At first, I thought more about the final I had lost than the way that brought me there. But that’s normal. If I want to improve, I also have to pay attention to what I can still improve rather than what I already achieved.

Austria has a huge Davis Cup qualifying tie against Chile in Salzburg in February. How much are you looking forward to that?

A lot. I’m looking forward to the home atmosphere and the days together with my team. It would be special, to take part in the very first edition of such a traditional competition with your country. This would be historical.


What are your hopes and goals for 2019


Unfortunately, I can’t give you typical goals. What I focus on are my performance, technique, hits, fitness and understanding of the game – the whole package. The results improve naturally when you improve your performance.


You had some epic battles in 2018, notably against Rafael Nadal at the US Open. Now you have had time to reflect, what did you learn from that?


The match against Nadal in New York was really important for me personally. I proved to myself that I could compete with the very best, even when they’re having a good day. That was a very, very important step in my progression.

Marcel Hirscher blog: Way harder in Adelboden than it appeared on TV
Austrian reflects on weekend win double and Eurosport Sportsman honour.

Austrian Marcel Hirscher has revealed that his third Adelboden career victory double was not as easy as it looked on TV for fans of his and alpine skiing.

Here, the 29-year-old reveals what went into his giant slalom and slalom wins together with his thoughts on receiving another big global honour.

Hey guys,

I managed to secure full marks in Adelboden! Well done - the joy is huge, but actually getting the 200 points was - as so often is - way harder than it appears on TV.
We started on Saturday with a very fast first giant slalom round. Our material selection was not ideal. It did not feel good, the ski didn't glide as much as I wanted and I could not really attack. We risked more in the second round. We altered the ski boot and used a ski that I only tested twice in training. That could have been a complete flop, but thankfully, it wasn't.

After a few gates, I realised that my gear was working, so I went for it and started to attack. The best run time in the second round, and ultimately the 0.66 seconds overall lead, brought the first 100 points. Then came a marathon: live interviews, flower ceremony, flash zone (meaning TV and radio interviews that are not live), interview in the VIP tent, press conference and doping checks. I was back in my room at 5pm.

Time was short so I had to make a decision between lunch, physiotherapy, shower, change of clothes and video analysis. What needs doing and what can I drop? I had to be at the awards ceremony for 6.30pm, too. That’s what happens, when you are spoilt for choice. The start number draw for the subsequent slalom race on Sunday took place directly after the awards ceremony. In between further interviews and an award presentation. More on this later. All in all, I was back at the hotel at 8.30pm then dinner, another physiotherapy and off to bed.

Now to the slalom. In the first round, I was lazy and did not really get into the race. I wasn't surprised. The marathon of tasks the day before was just too much. I need time to recover and refocus, but unfortunately that was not possible this time. However, the time lag of 0.39 seconds was still reasonable and left everything open for the second round. In the second round, I knew that it meant all or nothing and, once more, I felt fit and strong. With a strenuous effort, I was able to get half a second ahead and celebrate my 67th World Cup victory.

What can we take away from Adelboden, apart from 200 points? Nine victories and 16 podiums in one place is obviously a success that no one has ever achieved before, which makes me very happy! But these are things that I can enjoy later. Right now I'm in the middle of a season with the awareness that it's getting tighter and tighter. Taking it easy doesn't work anymore. It is a nip and tuck race now as the competition is extremely strong. I have no chance if I don't give it everything and a little bit more, so we'll have to prepare well for the next three slalom classics.

Let's now talk a bit more about the award. On Sunday, Eurosport World declared me Sportsman of the Year 2018. Another big honour, I would like to thank you all for. Nominated were amazing athletes like MARTIN FOURCADE, SIMONE BILES, NOVAK DJOKOVIC, LEWIS HAMILTON and MARC MARQUEZ so winning the award is incredible. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

There's only one question left to answer: what's next? Quite simple. First of all taking a break and regeneration - finally! On Wednesday, we will resume the training before we the travel to Wengen on Saturday.

Until then!

Yours, Marcel

"Moments in my career when I did really well" - Dani Pedrosa
Spanish bike legend reveals all in Red Bull TV's 'The Silent Samurai' documentary.

Spanish bike rider Dani Pedrosa retired from racing at the end of the 2018 MotoGP season after an illustrious elite career that included 31 wins and 112 podiums.

The 33-year-old, who also claimed one 125cc title and two 250cc crowns, has now revealed all about his years on and off the track in Red Bull TV documentary 'The Silent Samurai'. Here is all you need to know:

- The Sabadell native made his World Championship debut in the 125cc class in 2001, securing one 2003 title and eight wins before moving up to 250cc.

- He started the 2004 season recovering from two broken ankles, however dominated the field to win the title and followed up with another in 2005.

- In 2006, the Repsol Honda Team handed him a MotoGP debut ride alongside American Nicky Hayden who went on to win his only title that same season.

- Pedrosa finished fifth with the likes of Italian Andrea Dovizioso and Spain's Marc Márquez also partnering him at Honda as he went on to claim three championship second places and three third places in a great career.

- The nearest he came to the elusive title happened in 2012 when compatriot Jorge Lorenzo pipped him to the crown by just 18 points in a thrilling season.

- After seeing the documentary, Pedrosa revealed: "It was quite emotional. Some scenes made me relive inspiring moments and also some difficult ones. Sometimes the eyes were about to shed a tear. I've had a hard time getting people to understand me; sometimes I felt that I don't fit into this world."

- In terms of multiple injuries that threatened his career, he said: "Two or three injuries don't affect much; but many, one after the other, they do. They're like deep footprints that are difficult to erase."

- Pedrosa has now collaborated with legendary Deus design director Mike Woolaway to build a custom café racer with a 750cc two-stroke Honda engine.

- Woolaway added: "Whenever I deliver a bike, I feel like I miss a part of myself but if it's for a rider like Dani, what more could you ask for? He is an honest and fair guy. I feel really lucky that it's for him."

Hirscher crushes Adelboden field to extend overall World Cup lead
Austrian produces giant slalom magic to beat great rival Kristoffersen.

- Pinturault finished fourth and Odermatt 10th as Hirscher extended his lead in both the 2018/19 FIS World Cup giant slalom and overall standings.

European Cup races confirmed at the Lauberhorn
Thanks to the engagement of numerous helpers, the 80 European Cup athletes were able to train on the Lauberhorn today. Tomorrow and on Saturday, two downhills will be held in Wengen.

The last days and nights have been very busy for the LOC staff, the Swiss Army and the civil protection, as they all teamed up to clean the course of the big amount of fresh snow that fell on the downhill course and to make it race ready for today. “All the people on the hill did a fantastic job to render today’s training possible,” praised the president of the Organising Committee Urs Näpflin.

As per tradition, Wengen hosts two European Cup downhills on the week before the World Cup races. This allows younger athletes to discover and test the longest downhill course in the world, which is an important step for the athletes and a very appreciated opportunity offered by the Organizing Committee of the Lauberhorn since 2009.

So on Friday and Saturday, athletes like Mattia Casse (ITA), who was the fastest in the training run, Gilles Roulin (SUI), Bostjan Kline (SLO), Valentin Giraud-Moine (FRA) and Adrian Smiseth Sejersted (NOR) will be able to race on the World Cup track, from the original start to the Wasserstation. Let’s see who handles the key sections Hundschopf, Canadian corner and Kernen-S the best.

Dunes claim Sainz's suspension, title hopes
'Monsieur Dakar' nabs 75th stage victory in Arequipa.

The third stage of the Dakar Rally from San Juan de Marcona to Arequipa, Peru, kicked off with a 467km liaison and a 331km special. Today's stage proved ruthless as navigational errors and foggy conditions plagued the race.


Here’s all you need to know.


CAR:

Defending champion Carlos Sainz of X-Raid Mini JCW Team suffered a blow as a navigational error led the team into a dune hole that resulted in significant suspension damage only 38km into the stage. The Spaniard's hopes were diminished in reclaiming the title, after losing almost 5 hours in repairs to the left suspension.

Stéphane Peterhansel commanded the stage win for X-Raid Mini JCW Team, reaching Arequipa with a time of 03h54”32”, beating Toyota Gazoo Racing’s Nasser Al-Attiyah by 3"26" as Jakub Przygonski Orlen X-Raid Team nabbed third. Peterhansel is in third place overall, 7’03" behind race leader Nasser Al-Attiyah.


Thirteen time Dakar champion, Peterhansel revealed: ”It was a nice stage, with tough dunes and tricky navigation: hard-to-find waypoints in the valleys. It was a quintessentially Peruvian stage and the sign of things to come in the next few days."


Nasser Al-Attiyah fought back to take the overall lead from teammate Giniel De Villiers as the pair prepare to take on tomorrows marathon stage.


Poland’s Jakub Przygońsk of Orlen X-Raid Team had a solid finish in third at the end of the third stage in Arequipa, fifth overall, and sitting less than 15 minutes behind the leaders.

Nine time World Rally champion and Red Bull privateer Sebastian Loeb, proved just how cruicial errors can be, after nabbing the second stage win yesterday, Loeb made a costly navigational error during the foggy conditions, conceding 42'55' to Stéphane Peterhansel, starting the marathon stage in eighth overall.


Loeb reveals: ”It was very foggy, but the problem was getting lost. We couldn't find our way back, so we went around in circles… and lost half an hour doing this. We lost big time, so we'll start from far back tomorrow. "


France's Cyril Despres of X-Raid Mini JCW Team also suffered navigational errors, slipping back to 6th but remianing in the Top 10.


BIKE:

Xavier de Soultrait (Yamaha Official Rally Team) took the stage three win with a time of 04h 07' 42'' ahead of Pablo Quintanilla (Husqvarna Factory Racing) and Kevin Benavides (Honda).

Foggy conditions continued to plague the final leg of stage three as Sam Sunderland, The 2017 champion, battled fog and navigation challenges in the third stage nabbing third place in the overall standings.


Sunderland reveals: "Definitely, it was difficult with the fog. For me, the road book was more or less good, but the problem was on the plateau, with the fog, you couldn't see. This was the issue so... You really couldn't see two/three metres in front of you. Finally, I stopped and took my goggles off and I was able to see a bit better. Yeah, a lot of chaos, after that everyone was in a group and everyone was going in front. But yeah, I'm sure we have many more days to come. This is the Dakar, it's what it's all about, tough times and up and downs, some carnage in the stage... Really, I just try to take each day as it comes, do my best, focus on my navigation and try to avoid mistakes because I think that's what's gonna make the difference in this race, as we saw today."


KTM's reigning champion Matthias Walkner also got lost in the reduced visibility, dropping to eighth place overall, 21 minutes behind the lead

QUAD:

Spain’s Gerard Farres Quell took the stage win with a time of 04h 35' 58’’, ahead of Chile’s Francisco Lopez Contardo, and Russia’s Sergei Kariakin, third.


TRUCK:

Andrey Karginov of Kamaz-Master clinched an impressive victory in Arequipa stretching the lead 12 minutes ahead of Federico Villagra. Third-placed Dmitry Sotnikov came ahead of overall leader Eduard Nikolayev, who lost 14 minutes in this stage.


Tomorrow, the marathon stage 4 begins from Arequipa to Tacna with 259km of liaison followed by 405km of racing.
