Alpine skiing World Cup: men’s slalom now in the live ticker
- Intermediate result: 1. Pertl (AUT), 2. Foss-Solevag (NOR) +0.16, 3. Noel (FRA) +0.34, 4. Kristoffersen (NOR) +0.38, 5. Pinturault (FRA) +0.41
Clearing: Technically the Brit drives fine and is close to the stages. Can he even jeopardize Pertl’s fastest time? No, his driving style in reserve is his undoing, he is also eliminated.
Jeandet: In the strong French slalom team, Muffat Jeandet is only third strongest. He can’t change this order today either, he’s out!
Meillard: How is the slope doing? The snow is soft, that is easy to see. The slope is still holding up quite well, there are not many ruts to be seen yet. Meillard is still eliminated because it leverages him too far with one swing and he can no longer reach the next bar.
Khoroshilov: When attacked, the Russian drives upstairs and wants to attack fully. But he is too aggressive, threads in after a few bars and is eliminated.
Matt: Manuel Feller was the biggest disappointment of the ÖSV so far, is Michael Matt doing better than him? Yes, he is not showing his best performance and cannot match the times of Schwarz and Pertl, but he is less than a second behind.
Yule: His coach set the run, an advantage? Yes, Yule has been able to get involved in a season that has so far been so disappointing for him and is seventh, six tenths behind, within striking distance. A respectable success for Yule this season!
Alpine skiing World Cup: Youngster Perl causes a surprise
The only 24-year-old has been in better shape recently and is strong. With a great rhythm he brings a best time to the finish and takes the lead.
The top favorite is on its way. In the combination, Schwarz already surprised with a gold medal and should be able to drive freely. He puts the ski on the edge nice and soft and can keep the boards on the train. However, towards the bottom he slows down and crosses the finish line four tenths behind.
Feller: What was wrong with Feller? His journey is very restless, with some goals his upper body wobbles back and forth – that’s not a good sign. In the second run, the Austrian needs to catch up.
The front is tight, which already promises an exciting final. So far, the leading Norwegian has ridden the hardest at the bottom, where his competitors usually lose a few tenths. So far, the best four have only been around 25 hundredths apart.
Kristoffersen: Head-to-head duel with his compatriot! Kristoffersen, who recently found his way back to his old form, at least in the slalom, duels at eye level with Foss Solevag. He’s a little slower, though, but Kristoffersen still stays ahead of Pinturault at the finish.
The re are few flat sections in today’s slalom, the slope is almost continuously quite steep. Zenhäuser doesn’t really look lively, given his height, quick movements in his legs are very important, which he doesn’t show today. He is a lot behind the leader.
The Norwegian sets the first comparison time. Not a single time flashes red, at all intermediate times he is just ahead. So it goes first with about two tenths of a lead into the target area.
Pinturault: How does the French cope with the giant slalom disappointment? Very well, his run remains without major mistakes. He manages the smooth run solidly, but we will only see in a moment what is worth his time.
Here we go!
Alpine Skiing World Cup: Men’s slalom in the live ticker today
The re was silver four hundredths behind Marco Schwarz in the combination, as the leader of the first run he lost his nerve in the second run and was eliminated. This is how the slalom is supposed to do it today, but its chances are not as great as in the previous competitions.
The achievements of “Team Norway” so far are disappointing, there was only one gold medal in the team competition, there is no single medal for the Norwegians, Sebastian Foss Solevag or Henrik Kristoffersen should change that.
The Frenchman Clement Noël completes the circle of slalom favorites.
January 6th was the biggest day of the year so far for Linus Straßer, he celebrated his first World Cup victory in slalom in Zagreb. At that time – beginning of January – he was in great shape, but the last races weren’t quite as convincing. Can Straßer fight his way out of this miniature depression today of all times?
The second DSV athlete is Sebastian Holzmann, who always fought for a place in the top 30 in the World Cup.
The tall Swiss is also a top favorite, he won the first slalom of the 2020/21 season and was always at the forefront after that. His team mate is a little stronger in the giant slalom, but still trumps with good performances in the somewhat slower discipline. Daniel Yule is still waiting for a similarly strong performance as last season, but still has what it takes to attack the front. And Luca Aerni also has more hopes for a medal after being in a somewhat stronger form recently. Is the Swiss team making the Cortina medal collection in double digits?
The last gold medal winner is no longer active. Marcel Hirscher won the last two World Championship slaloms, but an ÖSV athlete quickly followed in his big footsteps in the technical discipline: Marco Schwarz is the outstanding slalom driver of this season and clearly leads the discipline World Cup. Since Liensberger’s victory yesterday, it has been clear that Austria is the best nation in the medal table. Black is preparing to get the sixth gold medal and eighth at all. Who is there besides him? Manuel Feller, of course, who also wants to compete for the podium. Also Michael Matt and Adrian Pertl – the two also envision outsider opportunities. All four ÖSV drivers start between starting numbers six and ten.
Linus Straßer starts the race with a significant disadvantage: He only starts with number 15 and thus last in the second starting group.
The International Ski Federation FIS changed the regulations for the World Championship slalom at short notice. In view of the predicted high temperatures and the resulting poor slope conditions, only the first 15 of the first run will start in reverse order in the final. Otherwise, in the World Cup, the driver who was initially placed 30th starts the second round.
The first run starts at 10 a.m., the second run starts at 1.30 p.m.
