Men of ice: Kriechmayr, Crawford and Kilde

A royal podium at Stelvio


Austrian’s colours shine on a wonderful Stelvio. Vincent Kriechmayr did amazingly well and managed to be the fastest in today’s Bormio DH race. The Alta Valtellina slope proved once again to be one of the most beautiful and toughest in the world, one where only the greatest see a victory. The thirty-one year old from Gramastetten - one of the DH skiers featuring the best style - faced a very icy slope, one that really forced everyone to give it all and push themselves close to the limit up to the finish line, especially in the first 4 sectors in which he skied wonderfully well. He was a little bit less incisive at la Konta but in the end he crossed the finish line with a fantastic 1'54 ”68.

What a race! No one was as incisive as him today. Canadian James Crawford offered another performance of great value but had to be happy with the second place (+0”40). Third place for the DH’s king so far, the Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, who struggled more than usual in the final part - la Konta - but managed to reduce the distance from Kriechmayr and ended with +0”68. Fourth place for Marco Odermatt (SUI), the leader of the general World Cup ranking +1"46, and fifth place for Ryan Cochran-Siegle (USA) + 1"87. Sixth place for an excellent Urs Kryenbuhel (SUI), while Justin Murisier’s seventh place - bib number 40 -  demonstrates the excellent state of Stelvio, which gave them all the possibility to express their full potential.
