Dave Ryding (35) sensationally won the Kitzbühel slalom. With this, the Scot was able to write a piece of ski history on the Ganslerhang. Ryding was still sixth after the first round. But in heavy snowfall he put in a real dream run in the second run and left the competition behind with a best time of 1:41.26. It is also the first British victory in World Cup history.
The sensational winner from Wengen, Lukas Braathen, finished second, 38 hundredths behind. Third was Henrik Kristoffersen, who was able to secure a place on the podium with the fastest time in the second round. Michael Matt just missed the podium. He finished fourth, 78 hundredths behind. Matt was 13 hundredths short of the podium. The sensational winner from Adelboden Johannes Strolz was fifth. Half-time leader Alex Vinatzer had no chance after a near failure. World slalom champion Foss-Solevag has retired. France’s Clement Noel, who was second after the first heat, finished 17th after a serious mistake.
