A different day with slightly different conditions (sunny and harder terrain) in Bormio for the second Downhill on the programme, but the outcome is the same: Dominik Paris (ITA) wins again the Downhill for the fifth time, the fourth in a row.
Paris pulls out another great run which seems much stronger than what his competitors can show.
In the end, however he clinches the win by only 0.08s on Urs Kryenbuehl (SUI), who does a perfect run starting with bib 25. It’s the first podium (and top 10) for the Swiss youngster. Kryenbuehl had achieved his career best result just yesterday with a 13th place and significantly improved today.
Another well-known face, Beat Feuz (SUI), concluded third in today’s Downhill, 0.26s behind Paris, claiming his fourth podium out of four Downhill races this season. The Swiss is very satisfied with his speed weekend on such a demanding slope, also considering his recent hand injury.
This victory is even more meaningful for Dominik Paris, as he now leads both the overall and the downhill ranking. Tomorrow he will compete in the Alpine Combined at 11.00 CET, another chance to score some important points.
