Manuel Villier confirmed his current good form in the first of two giant slalom races on the Gran Risa in Alta Badia on Sunday. The Tyrolean finished third in the first round and was involved in the decision (1.30pm, live on ORF1 and in live broadcast) for the podium and even the win. Because first runner Mathieu Fever of France is only 19 hundred ahead of Feller.

All in all, the first round of the classic RTL from Alta Badia turned out to be a hundredth of a thrill. World champion Faivre leads in the second round over Swiss Marco Odermatt, who won both races of the season in this discipline at Sölden and Val d’Isere. Fourth-placed River Radamos from the United States is also within 0.30 seconds of the lead.

As Pfeffer battles for his third World Cup victory after racing at home in Val d’Isere in December 2016 and this year in February in Bansko, Bulgaria, Feller has all the cards in hand to extend his podium streak for Austria this season. Because both Sölden with second place for Roland Leitinger and more recently at Val d’Isère with third place for Feller had an ÖSV runner on the podium. The parallel RTL in Zürs also ended with Christian Hirschbull’s victory.

Faivre reaches victory

The world champion from France set the fastest time with the No. 2 start, but the competition for the 29-year-old’s neck

“Last year it was very difficult for me physically and mentally, but we have invested a lot. My body is in better shape. We have removed the weaknesses from the previous year, which also reduces technical errors. His current form in the giant slalom, after taking the position, said Feller said of his current form in the giant slalom. Sixth on the field last year was the 29-year-old’s greatest feeling.

Austrians have a lot to catch up with

But for his Feller teammates, things didn’t necessarily go according to plan. Stefan Bernsteiner lost 1.29 seconds to Pfeiffer’s fastest time. Marco Schwartz was also unable to uproot any trees. Alta Badia’s third World Cup was built in as many gliding stages as the demanding Gran Risa and crossed the finish line with a decent 1.59sec package on the leaderboard.

Despite the great helplessness, Black was satisfied with his first giant slalom after being injured. “Round one was fine, of course I still have to feel my way into sections where more courage is needed. But I am on the right track. Carinthian said in an interview with ORF:”

With Patrick Forstein, the fourth Austrian made the decision. But Raphael Hauser and Christian Burgess missed the top 30 final. Thomas Dorner and Dominic Rachner also have to try again in Monday’s second giant slalom. The pair were eliminated in the first round on Sunday.
