Aksel Lund Svindal injured his hand by falling into the Super G at Copper Mountain last night.
He said it was so painful that he could not hold the bat alone, so he had to hit the baton in his hand during yesterday's workout.
"Even though I'm getting a little worse, I'm not losing my start, so it's an option that works very well," said a positive svindal to the NRK.
Lund Svindal injured his thumb and now he informs that he needed surgery.
"A small injury on Thursday, a slight injury to my hand, but it's a bit more complicated than I thought, so I decided to do an operation today," says Lund Svindal, among others.
"It's a relapse, but it's still possible with a race in the near future," he writes before asking how Felix Neureuther deals.
Break your thumb
Neureuther, who is planning a return to the World Cup on Sunday in Levi, also suffered a break from training.
"I broke my thumb after taking him off the line during today's training. I want him to be operated on when I return to Germany, he writes on his Facebook page according to NTB.
"It will be difficult to compete on Sunday, but I will try," wrote Neureuther.
Aksel Lund Svindal has been scheduled for the defenders of the season next Saturday. It is unclear what is happening now after the surgery.
