In the absence of the Swiss World Cup leader Marco Odermatt, his compatriot Loic Meillard secured the lead on Wednesday after the first run of the night giant slalom in Schladming. With a strong performance on the icy Planai, the 26-year-old distanced himself from his team-mate Gino Cavieziel by 0.64 seconds, the Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen was already a whopping 1.06 seconds behind in third place.

For Manuel Feller, one day after fourth place in the Schladming slalom, at least the podium was within reach, he was fourth 1.52 seconds behind. Stefan Brennsteiner was 1.92 behind in the last giant slalom before the World Cup, Raphael Haaser 1.99, Marco Schwarz and Roland Leitinger each 2.38.

Odermatt, who has won four of the five giant slalom runs this season so far, decided to pass after snow training in Schladming in the morning. According to media reports, the Swiss suffered a meniscus contusion in the Kitzbühel descent last Friday. Odermatt already feels better, but does not want to take any risks with a view to the near future, according to those around him. The second round starts at 8:45 p.m., we report live.
