Alexis Pinturault Takes Double Victory in Hinterstoder
Alexis Pinturault skis an unbelievable first run today, setting almost one second between him and the chasing pack. In the second run, the French man administrates his advantage and takes his third Giant Slalom victory in Hinterstoder, as well as the third in the current season in this discipline.
Filip Zubcic impresses once again, skiing two terrific runs and closing second, 0.45 seconds behind Pinturault. After becoming the first Croatian man to win a Giant Slalom last week, Zubcic takes his second consecutive podium in Hinterstoder, the third one this season.
Henrik Kristoffersen clocks the third-fastest time (+0.72s) with a good comeback in the second run and achieves his 62nd podium in 149 World Cup races. He is now the new leader in the Giant Slalom standings.
