I always do the contrary of what my coaches tell me.
My goal is the same as every year - to not hurt myself.
It's not quite as important who you beat as that you end up on top.
When you back off, it's easier to do mistakes. For me it's better to ski fast.
Once the season starts for me, there isn't a change in my focus, just a change in my tactics and strategies.
People in the U.S. will watch anything if it's put in front of their face over and over again. I like to see what's possible, more than anything.
That feeling is the same whether you're on either side of the hundredths. Obviously, it's great to win the world championship, but if you put down that kind of skiing, it's awesome either way.
In some ways, that's the story of my season - when I wasn't making big mistakes, I was winning races and being on the podium. And when I made mistakes I was still fourth or fifth, just off the podium.
But there was no question in my mind that I was gonna still go for it. I was still going for the win. I wasn't skiing for second or third place today, and in the end I think that's probably what got me there.
