Mauro Caviezel made it onto the podium in Saalbach-Hinterglemm for the third time this season. Thanks to the 2nd place, he advanced to position 2 in the discipline classification. Graubünden was 0.15 seconds short of his 1st World Cup victory in his career. Caviezel showed an aggressive ride, but made a time-consuming mistake at the key point shortly after the halfway point.
Only Aleksander Kilde was faster than Caviezel. The Norwegian was not only happy about his 4th World Cup victory. He also came out on top in the Super-G classification and in the overall World Cup. Thomas Dressen completed the podium. The German, who won the downhill on Thursday, also showed his good form in the Super-G.

While Mauro Caviezel was again on the podium close to 3rd place in the downhill, the rest of the Swiss could not be at the front. The second best Swiss ski athlete was Marco Odermatt. The Nidwaldner did not make any noteworthy mistakes, but was still behind by more than a second.
With Gilles Roulin and Pascal Rogentin, two more Swiss made it into the top 20. Carlo Janka still got points as 26th. For Beat Feuz, the race ended after around 35 seconds. The Schangnauer lost his balance in a jump and was eliminated. Niels Hintermann also did not finish.
The organizers in Saalbach-Hinterglemm had to deal with difficult weather conditions. The start, originally planned for 11 a.m., had to be postponed several times. The reason for the delay was gusty wind and snow. The route had to be shortened.
So it goes on
The technicians will be back on the weekend of February 22nd and 23rd. In Naeba, Japan, there is a giant slalom on Saturday and a slalom on Sunday.
