Back-To-Back Win for Henrik Kristoffersen in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

After yesterday's victory, Henrik Kristoffersen was again at the top of the podium and claimed his fourth World Cup victory of the season in the second Slalom held in Garmisch. It was Kristoffersen's 21st World Cup victory in Slalom, and his 25th overall.

Only Ingemar Stenmark (40), Alberto Tomba (35) and Marcel Hirscher (32) have won more Slalom races than Kristoffersen.

Thanks to a solid and tactic second run, Kristoffersen was able to climb up, from the 8th position of the first run to the top of the podium.

After Garmisch's victories, Henrik Kristoffersen is now leading the Slalom World Cup standings with 356 points, 49 points ahead of his teammate Lucas Braathen.

Dave Ryding, Kitzbuhel's Slalom winner, finished in the second position +0.35 seconds behind the Norwegian. It's his 5th podium in the World Cup, 4 of them in Slalom and one in Oslo's City Event.

Linus Strasser rounded out the podium in third, +0.47 seconds behind Kristoffersen. It's his 5th podium in a World Cup Slalom.

Spanish skier Joaquim Salarich, with bib number 49, finished +0.60 behind Kristoffersen for a career-best seventh position. This season he had earned World Cup points in three previous races in Val d'Isere (15th), Madonna di Campiglio (15th), and yesterday in Garmisch (8th).

"The weekend was amazing, I have no words. I've never had this feeling before, two times in Top-10. I am really happy and I can't say anything. I am on the way and I am hungry for more", Salarich said.
