The Zauberlehrling: A Chat with Philipp Reiter

I was 18. So, after the first stage, I just went to the hotel and lay down, took some cake from the shelf and thought, Oh man. I have to do this for seven more days! But the next day we were quite good and, I think we were in third position overall. Stefan really pushed hard and wanted to be on the podium but on the last downhill he got cramps in both legs and he was sitting down crying. [laughs] I gave him my poles and we hiked down. The next day was the longest stage, I think almost 50k, and he suddenly said, “Philipp, I’m not tired, I’m not hungry, but I do not want to continue!” I was like, “Stefan, I should say that! Come on, we’ll finish the stage, we can hike it in eight hours.” I had my mobile phone with some reggae and apres-ski music, so I put it on the speaker and tried to motivate him. [laughs] It worked and we finished the stage.
