Daniel Yule is the New Slalom King of Kitzbühel
Daniel Yule wins today a thrilling race in Kitzbühel, claiming his fourth Slalom World Cup win, the third one this season after his victories in Adelboden and Madonna.
The second place goes to Marco Schwarz (AUT), showing today again that he is 100% fit again to compete with the best ones. The Austrian went very close to claiming his first Slalom World Cup victory finishing 0.12s from Yule.
Third place goes to last season winner Clement Noel. He finished +0.37 seconds behind the swiss skier. Despite a major mistake in the second run, Noel was able to achieve the podium, coming back from the 9th position scored in run 1.
Young Norwegian talent Lucas Braathen was the surprise of the day. When Yule thought he had scored the fastest time in run 1, there comes Braathen with bib 34 and takes the lead +0.33 seconds ahead of the Swiss. During the second run, the Norwegian born in 2000, was not able to keep the lead but closed in 4th position tied with Henrik Kristoffersen +0.49 seconds behind Yule, a career-best result for him.
