And Beat Feuz can also do this in Super-G. On the slope of Saslong in Val Gardena, where he took the last Swiss win in 2011, Bernese finished fourth in Alexandre Kielde’s renewed victory.
Beat Feuz was ranked best at the last Super G World Cup in March 2019 as Kvitfjell’s third. The best alpine skier of the past four seasons has been within three tenths of the podium at Val Gardena.
Stefan Rogente finished fifth behind Fuse, who lost 0.57 seconds to the winner, by 17 percent. The 27-year-old from Graubünden has achieved the best result of his career. Marco Pfiffner out of Liechtenstein.
Odermatt is back for once
Nils Hintermann was the third-best Swiss player in 19th place. The Zurich-based man was not far ahead in the Super G. On the other hand, it was the first big disappointment of the Olympic winter for Marco Odermatt. The man from Nidwalden, who won the first two Super-G races of the season at Beaver Creek with one win and second place, was just 24 in Val Gardena, by 1.37 seconds.
Alexander Keldy was once again unbeatable at Saslong. The Norwegian celebrated four of his nine World Cup victories on this slope. Two weeks ago, he already won a Super-G and Downhill race at Beaver Creek.

Kelde triumphed by 22 points over Olympic Super G champ Matthias Maier, who led in the Disciplinary World Cup with 210 points after three of seven races this season, ahead of Kelde (200) and Udermatt (187). Austria also took third place – thanks to Super G world champion Vincent Kreichmayer (by 0.27).
In the World Cup as a whole, Odermatt is still 63 points ahead of Mayer (453:390), who, unlike Nidwalden, will run downhill on Saturday. The classic movie on Saslong starts at 11.45 am.
