Daniel Yule (SUI) is simply unstoppable. The Swiss man claims his third victory this season and his very first one in Kitzbühel (AUT). After winning two of the last three races, Yule shows again that he is probably in the best shape he has ever been.
Second after run 1, Yule took all the risks in the second run and managed to take the win, closing 0.12s ahead of crowd's favourite Marco Schwarz (AUT). The Austrian went very close to claiming his first Slalom World Cup victory but eventually closed second, preceding French youngster Clement Noel.
Despite a major mistake in the second run, Noel was able to achieve the podium, comin back from the 9th position scored in run 1.
Young Norwegian talent Lucas Braathen is the surprise of the day. When Yule thought he had scored the fastest time in run 1, there comes Braathen with bib 34 and takes the lead. During the second run, the Norwegian born in 2000, was not able to keep the lead but closed in 4th position, a career best result for him.
With this victory, Daniel Yule jumps up in the Slalom standings and chases the current leader Henrik Kristoffersen, only 17 points away now. On Tuesday it's slalom time again with the Night Race in Schladming.
