The Norwegian succeeds in the sixth attempt, on the day when the cannibal Marcel Hirscher misses the first heat and fails in the second to recover a monochromatic gap of 1 “05, although with the third time.The Norwegian, under a heavy snowfall, has tamed path not easy with more than one fatal bump and with so much difficulty in being able to give speed: in the end the advantage of Kristoffersen on Hirscher was 97/100, after a thousand risks.I had to take them, on the other hand, to manage the advantage, as for everyone else to reassemble the furrow built by Kristoffersen and Michael Matt in the first run, and so they all risked, paying duty inevitably on more than one occasion: but not the Swiss Daniel Yule, who had accused a 23 “delay from Kristoffersen and extraordinary in the second fraction, closed with the third place, 1 “35 from the winner, but above all not Marcel Hirscher, who managed to cancel the bad feelings of the first run with a fantastic performance, which earned second place and put a crazy pressure on Kristoffersen and Matt. The latter has risked falling several times in a batting heats and at the end he started to see the podium fade! Fourth ended the French Victor Muffat-Jeandet, 2 “16 from Kristoffersen, going back from the twelfth position, Stefano Gross tried, good sixth in the first heat, but a slip on a dossetto in the central part of the second cost dear, with the blue crashed to eleventh place.
