Wow! What an exciting race by Aksel Lund Svindal, the winner of the 2013 Bormio downhill race!
He’s first before the Austrian Hannes Reichelt (he won last year – same time as Dominik Paris) and the Canadian Erik Guay, second and third place respectively.
It’s been a day full of pure adrenaline and we are happy to share the best moments with you. You will find photos of Aksel Lund Svindal and the podium, the athletes on the course, at the parterre and during the press conference, the many the guests and of course the public! you have followed us with passion, both before and during the race. THANK YOU!

It has been a really exciting second training today! Erik Guay was the fastest, followed by Hannes Reichelt, Aksel Lund Svindal, David Poisson, Bode Miller, Didier Defago and Peter Fill. They were all pictured while jumping!
The racers were very focused but also smiley while at the start area, meaning of how relaxed atmosphere was. Some of the Azzurri have been pictured both up there on the track during the inspection and in the finish area. There was someone who was waiting for an American (guess who? ). Furthermore, there was another special guest, who was 3rd on the Stelvio in 1996
And then tonight’s events and, as always, a lot of people working on the track and at the parterre to share the pure adrenaline to those who won’t live the event “live”!

Christof Innerhofer was the fastest today – during the first official training. You can see he’s satisfied from that beautiful smile and the intense portrait at the parterre, immediately after the race. Bode Miller was the second fastest and Aksel Lund Svindal the third.
The day started the best way, with a fantastic sun and a slope everyone was happy with, especially the athletes (listen to what they said about it!)
The pure adrenaline is back on the Stelvio, which was full not only of athletes but also teams, technical staff, the forerunners, the slid crew, photographers and fans and tourists who have already started to follow the event from the track and at the parterre.
JANUARY 5, 2014 – LADIES’ SLALOM
Bormio woke up this morning with a lovely and bright sunshine and the yesterday’s snowfalls are just a memory! Stelvio has his new slalom king, it’s the German Felix Neureuther, who beat the Austrian Marcel Hirscher, one of the favorites, and the Italian Manfred Moelgg who – with his third place is even more confident with the next World Cup events and the Olympic Games in Sochi.
Works on Stelvio course started this morning at 9.30am, after the team had spent their time from 3am the previous night to 6pm the day after preparing the women’s and, later, the men’s track.
Stelvio hosted three World Cup races in less than two weeks – and they were days packed with excitement and pure adrenaline.
THANK YOU TO ALL THE “MEN AT WORK” INVOLVED WITH THE EVENTS, AND THANK YOU TO YOU! YOU WERE AMAZING
JANUARY 5, 2014 – LADIES’ SLALOM
Slalom is back here in Bormio after 6 years, with the two previously scheduled races in Zagreb. Today it was ladies’ time and the Stelvio has how its queen, Mikaela Shiffrin, first place before the Swedish Maria Pietilae-Holmner and the French Nastasia Noens.
The day began early for the team at work on the Stelvio, under the snow/rain that has created a whiter Bormio in the last days. In spite of this, fans of slalom and winter sports enthusiasts were there on the stands watching the two runs!
THANK YOU FOR STAYING WITH US!
