+++ February 25, 2024: Slalom driver Strasser takes third place in the USA World Cup – Feller wins +++

Linus Strasser finished third on the podium at the World Cup Slalom Championships in Palisades-Tahoe. The Munich native was unable to maintain his lead in the first half at the American ski resort on Sunday evening and was forced to concede defeat to Manuel Vieler of Austria and Frenchman Clement Noel.

In the general slalom classification, the 31-year-old is now 204 points behind leader Feller with three races remaining, and so has only a theoretical chance of winning the mini-crystal ball.

After an excellent first round, Straßer took the decision as the leader by four tenths of a second. Even then he made a great start and was three-quarters of a second ahead. On a difficult course and on a rather destructive slope, he lost more and more time – in the end, the TSV 1860 Munich athlete was 0.38 seconds behind Feller and 0.10 seconds behind Noel.

+++ February 23, 2024: Skier Odermatt wins early all-around World Cup +++

Dominating skiing Marco Odermatt won the giant slalom in Palisades Tahoe, thus securing an early victory in the World Cup general classification. With the success he achieved in the United States on Saturday evening, the Swiss raised his lead in the standings to more than 1,000 points – meaning that the big crystal ball can no longer be mathematically withdrawn from him before the final ten races of the winter. The Swiss had already won the overall standings in the past two years.

At the ski resort in California, the 26-year-old downed Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen (+0.12 seconds) to second place in a first-class duel. American River Radamus (1.37) came in third place to the cheers of spectators. Odermatt won the giant slalom at the World Cup for the tenth time in a row. “It was very close today,” the winner said.

In the overall standings, he is now ahead by 1,001 points over Austrian Manuel Feller, who ranked eighth. Given Odermatt's performances this season and the absences of some of his rivals due to injury, there has long been no doubt that the Swiss would once again win the big crystal ball as the best of the year. Now this is also fixed mathematically.

The best German was Alexander Schmid in 15th place (+2.58). On Sunday (7pm CET) there is a slalom race in the Palisades near Lake Tahoe where Linus Strasser wants to race for victory and his chances of winning the discipline's classification.
