Last year’s 3Tre winner shined in the first run ahead of Kristoffersen, while Italy’s youngster Vinatzer gave confidence to the home crowd in view of the second run from 20h45 CET
A surprise winner at 3Tre last year - his very first and so far only World Cup victory – Swiss Daniel Yule is leading the field again tonight after the first run of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Night Slalom in Madonna di Campiglio. Over the fast and iced Canalone Miramonti slope, Yule clocked 47.56 and was one out of only four skiers under 48-seconds, preceding one of the main favorites, Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen (+0.19) aiming for his third success in Campiglio to equal Italian legend Alberto Tomba.
Swede Andre Myhrer scored the third timing (+0.40) ahead of Russian Alexander Khoroshilov (+0.42) who certainly provided the most surprising performance of the first run considering his bib 25.
Another Norwegian, Sebastian Foss-Solevaag (+0.53) entered the temporary top-five while the first run disappointed both French stars Clement Noel and Alexis Pinturault, eight and tenth respectively so far.
Youngster Italian Alex Vinatzer, after his first World Cup podium spot in Zagreb, displayed another solid performance by finishing 11th (+0:95), giving confidence to the home crowd in view of the second and decisive run, to be held from 20:45 CET onward
