Clement Noel (FRA) picks it up where he left off in Wengen. The French man wins for the second time in a row the Slalom on the Lauberhorn, on the same slope where he achieved his first World Cup victory last year.
Noel won the race in the first run, where he clocked the fastest time, 0.67s faster than anyone else. During the second run, he fought off the attack of Henrik Kristoffersen (NOR), who finished once again second (third time in a row in slalom), 0.40s behind the French skier.
Alexander Khoroshilov (RUS) positively impressed the Swiss crowd and crossed the line in third place thanks to an outstanding final section of his second run. The Russian skier returns to the podium almost three years after his 3rd place in Schladming in 2017.
A special mention goes to Jean-Baptiste Grange and his return to the top 10. The French veteran, who won Wengen's slalom back in 2008, scored the second fastest time in the second run and climbed up 13 positions from run 1 to finish ninth.
That's a wrap on an aciton-packed weekend in Wengen! Next stop in Kitzbühel (AUT)!
