The winner of the first Streif descent this weekend has been determined. The Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde drives the best time in the Kitzbühel downhill ahead of Johan Clarey (+0.42) and Matthias Mayer (+0.67). Marco Odermatt is fourth (+0.78). Kilde was in a class of his own on the shortened descent. For him it was the 12th World Cup success.
After all, the ÖSV had a runner on the podium: “It wasn’t quite ideal with the front number – especially over the hollow way out. Since it has become faster from runner to runner. My ride was okay – I was able to get a lot out of it, especially down there. You knew it was going to be an unsettled day with the weather,” said Matthias Mayer after the race
Canadian John Crawford was able to surprise and finished fifth. Beat Feuz, one of the top favorites, had to settle for seventh place. The second best Austrian was Daniel Hemetsberger in ninth place (+1.26). Vincent Kriechmayr finished outside the top ten in 12th place (+1.47). Dominik Paris was also one of the top favourites. He ended up in 22nd place, 2.22 seconds behind.
