Christopher Jacobsen is out - for the third time in a row

Christopher Jacobsen is out – for the third time in a row

Christopher Jacobsen did well in the middle of the first half, but lost towards the end after some small errors in difficult conditions.

The Swede was even doing well in the second race at the start – but after a bit of a race Jacobsen branched out and out. This was Christopher Jacobsen’s third consecutive knockout at the World Cup – after he started with two consecutive places on the podium.

– It feels like a challenge to come here and try to get down here among all the hills and bumps. It’s a very special slalom, hard to find good flow along the way. Jacobsen said it happens a lot before the competition in Kitzb├╝hel where he’s never been able to collect World Cup points before.

Another Swede, Carl Johnson, participated in the first round.

British historic victory

But it was not only Jakobsen who got away by car. Lots of skaters have had problems mastering the difficult hill. In the end, Dave Riding of Great Britain was the winner – and that was his first World Cup victory. It was also Britain’s first-ever World Cup victory in the Alps over a men’s team.

The podium overall was a Norwegian double with Lukas Brathen (second) and Henrik Kristofferson (third).
