With the men’s slalom, the Alpine Ski World Championships, which are highly successful from an Austrian point of view, come to an end in Cortina. At the end, an ÖSV quartet can hope for a medal again.
The first round (start at 10 a.m.) will be opened by combined vice world champion Alexis Pinturault. At the end of the top group, the ÖSV hopes Manuel Feller and Marco Schwarz start with starting numbers six and seven. Adrian Pertl, the slalom vice world champion of 2019, Michael Matt, starts with number ten.
The other drivers are only allowed to compete after the half-time leader. This measure was taken due to the warm weather conditions in Cortina.
