Kristoffersen wins the first round of the slalom in Schladming, Pinturault eliminated

Starting with bib 1, the Norwegian Henrik Kistoffersen immediately set the reference time (54”19) for the first round of the slalom in Schladming (Austria) and no one could beat him. At ease in his ski, the 5th of the last slalom of Kitzbühel will start in the second run with 21 hundredths ahead of the Austrian Manuel Feller (54”40), who started with bib 2, and 30 over the Swiss Loïc Meillard (54”49).

The second run promises to be tight since they are seven skiers to stand in less than a second. Between Kristoffersen, first, and Clément Noel, 7th, there are only 77 hundredths.

The Pinturault disappointment

The Vosgien is the only French qualified in the second round. Alexis Pinturault, who started with bib 15, made a big poor performance by finishing 31st and is the first non-qualified at 4”04 from the leader. After Kitzbühel two days ago, this is the second consecutive slalom in which he will not see the second run. Steven Amiez took 34th place and Paco Rassat 49th. Théo Letitre, the last tricolor engaged, did not finish his first run and was disqualified.
