Alexis Pinturault was, however, that the 19th place after the downhill, but it was the fastest in the slalom to earn a 21st victory on the circuit of the world Cup.
The French Alexis Pinturault has inherited another victory in the alpine combined at the world Cup from Bormio when the leader at the end of the first round, the Italian Dominik Paris, has spanned a gate at the end of his slalom.
His combined time of two minutes, 41,13 seconds allowed him to register a seventh victory in the alpine combined by a margin of 42 hundredths of a second on the Italian Peter Fill, for whom it is a first podium this season. The Norwegian Kjetil Jansrud has finished 45 hundredths of a second behind for third place. Overall leader Marcel Hirscher, the world champion 2015 in the discipline, has not participated in the event.
The Canadian Broderick Thompson has offered a solid performance by taking eighth place, 1.22 seconds behind the winner. “I skied with confidence in the two sleeves and I’ve made some good turns, said Thompson. It gave a very good result. “
Pinturault was, however, that the 19th place after the downhill — 1.65 second of Paris — but it has been the fastest in the slalom to earn a 21st victory on the circuit of the world Cup. He has also won four of the last five and six of the last nine months combined alpine at the world Cup.
“It is much better than people think in the downhill,” said Jansrud. As he is extremely talented in slalom, it makes a dangerous combination. This is the man to beat. “
Paris was in a good position to add to his victory in the downhill the day before, while he held an advance of 46 cents on Pinturault to the last passage through the slalom. The Italian, however, has lost control with about 10 doors to work around.
The event is often considered the most difficult alpine skiing, since it requires skills completely different through the two sleeves. This race has clearly shown, the track Stelvio being particularly physical for the descent, while the slalom, which takes place in the evening, did not leave room for the specialists of the discipline.
