Austria celebrates in Switzerland. The men’s ÖSV team took a double victory in the Adelboden slalom. Johannes Strolz from Vorarlberg won his first World Cup at the age of 29. He benefited from injuries and failures in the ÖSV team, because in the past he did not meet the squad criteria and even had to organize his training sessions himself.
“I have to say thank you to so many people. If I listed them all now, I would not be finished. Above all, I want to say thank you to all of my family for supporting me. Now it has all finally paid off. It’s just a dream. Incredible, ”said Gstrein emotionally in an ORF interview after the race. He leaves Manuel Feller (+0.17) and the German Linus Straßer +0.29) behind. As the third best Austrian, Marco Schwarz missed the top ten. Alexis Pinturault is out, as is Fabio Gstrein.
