Taking the win in front of your home crowd, on a legendary track, on a beautiful sunny day, is pretty much as good as it gets. Beat Feuz had the honor today in Wengen as he won the legendary Lauberhorn downhill ahead of Dominik Paris y Thomas Dressen.
Beat Feuz (SUI) claims Wengen’s Downhill for the third time. The Swiss speed skier masters the shortened Lauberhorn Downhill once again and grabs his 10th World Cup victory in this discipline. His third win in Wengen follows his previous victories in 2012 and 2018.
The local hero skied to the limit without committing any mistakes and was rewarded with the lead position in front of Dominik Paris (ITA). The Italian, after winning the last two Downhills (both in Bormio), proved once more his world-class skills and his top shape, finishing +0.29s behind the Swiss.
Thomas Dressen (GER) narrowly missed second place by 0.02 s and celebrates his third podium of the season, the second one in Downhill, and the first top 3 finish of his career in Wengen.
