The local hero Kjetil Jansrud managed to stand the pressure of a home race and won today’s super-g in Kvitfjell ahead of Beat Feuz and Brice Roger.
The Kitzbuehel winner, World and Olympic champions all shared the podium today in the downhill in Kvitfjell, as Thomas Dressen won his second career race and Beat Feuz and Aksel Lund Svindal round out the podium.
The last regular speed week-end came to an end today at Kvitfjell (NOR), with the Super-G on the Olympiabakken course. Three experienced skiers took the spots on the podium, with Peter Fill earning the win, ahead of Hannes Reichelt and Erik Guay.
The Kvitfjell downhill could take place from the very top today and for the first time in 201 years, a Norwegian topped the podium as Kjetil Jansrud won, followed by Peter Fill (ITA) and Beat Feuz (SUI).
It was an historic day for Slovenia, as Bostjan Kline earned his first-ever World Cup win. The 26 year-old racer from Maribor had performances last year, with two second places, and he definitely was on the “one-to-watch” list.
A great speed weekend came to a closet in Kvitfjell (NOR), with the last regular Super-g before the Finals. Only four athletes earned a Super-G podium more than once this season (Svindal, Hirscher, Kilde, Weibrecht), so the outcome of today’s race was wide open, and the Cup standings very tight.
