The first run of the men’s slalom taking place in Bormio finished with the German and the Austrian with almost the same time – Second run tonight at 6.10pm
Just 0.01 separates the two talented and amazing slalom racers in the first run of the slalom in Bormio: the great Austrian Marcel Hirscher, the winner of the last two World Cups, and the elegant Felix Neureuther from Germany. Behind them two very fast Swedish racers: Mattias Hargin and Andre Myhrer, still fighting for the victory. Between them – with the fourth fastest time – another veteran, the Austrian Reinfried Herbst, the only one – apart from the magnificent seven – with a good time.
Frozen snow and a fast course that privileged giant slalomists as planned by Bernd Bruner, Ted Ligety’s coach; but also the American champion couldn’t do better than a fifteenth place.
Second run will be at 6.10 pm
