Some notes[edit]

Dear Sir, I would like to give some notes - and I would like to cit. the German Wikipedia (but the most I know by myself too):

Mr. Håker was the first Norwegian male racer to become a winner of an important race after 17 years; the last one was Stein Eriksen in the 1950ies (many years before establishing the Alpine Skiing World Cup). Winning his first World Cup Race (Giant Slalom on December 9th, 1971, at Val d'Isère), he could take advantage of the new regulations regarding order of start in the second leg. He weared the bib number 20 and was in lead after the first leg. Because new regulations were designed for more fairness (at first time, the start order sayed, that racers could start according to the result of the first leg; the 15th-placed of the first leg was the first starter in the second leg a.s.o. - see notes to detail in the talk of season 1971/72). In the Olympic Giant Slalom race on the 9th and 10th Februar, 1972, at the Teine-Hill, he (wearing bib number one) was in lead after the first leg ahead of the German Alfred Hagn (he became the fourth at last) and (the later gold medalist) Gustavo Thöni (see "Arbeiterzeitung Vienna" from February 10th, page 12), but (maybe, starting as the last of the best racers and due to great nervousness) he was out after a few seconds in the second leg.
Over the time, Mr. Håker (who lived at Mittersill during the racing season) did "grow up" to an excellent downhill racer but it was curious enough how he had to achieve his first (and only) victory in a World Cup Downhill Race (on Dezember 17th, 1978, at Val Gardena). Being victorious (at first) there the timekeeping instrument did fail; at that time only 15 racers had finished the race (maybe a flying helicopter did cut the connection, but the statement of Swiss Mr. Toni Kaegi, delegate to the FIS, given several time after the "second race", did arrive at a conclusion, that the matter for the breakdown would remain unclair). The jury decided (by voting 3-0) for a repetition of the race (to held two hours later), but rightfully Mr. Håker was able to achieve best time once more (see "Arbeiterzeitung Vienna" from December 18th, 1978, page 7). Mr. Håker could capture eleven times a title as a Norwegian Champion between 1970 and 1981. (talk) 19:52, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
