The Frenchman prevailed on the salt slope ahead of the Italian Guglielmo Bosca (+0.18) and the Swiss Loic Meillard (+0.25). His compatriot and overall World Cup leader Marco Odermatt came fourth (+0.28), Vincent Kriechmayr fifth (+0.32). Daniel Hemetsberger decided not to compete due to pain.

For the 30-year-old Allegre it was his first success and podium finish in the World Cup. “We are pushing ourselves more and more as a team. It feels great,” said the Frenchman, who had found the optimal material for the salty conditions.

“Funny race”

In the Discipline World Cup, Odermatt continues to lead ahead of Kriechmayr and Kitzbühel downhill double winner Cyprien Sarrazin, who was eleventh on the day after 42 runners. Odermatt called it a “weird race with close gaps” and said it was a simple Super-G in which it was not possible to make a big difference. “I am satisfied with my performance compared to my direct competitors for the balls.”

In the ORF TV interview, Kriechmayr spoke of a solid ride. “The slope is better than expected, it’s soft at the top, but the rest is okay. The icefall was perhaps a little too easy,” said the Upper Austrian. There were also points in the ÖSV team for Raphael Haaser (15th), Lukas Feurstein (19th), Otmar Striedinger (21st) and Andreas Ploier (24th), Stefan Babinsky missed these.

The Upper Austrian Hemetsberger, who has been skiing with a torn lateral meniscus since a fall in Beaver Creek, felt severe pain in his ski boot on Saturday and gave up for the race. “I’m extremely frustrated. I’ve struggled for years to get to where I’ve been for the last two years “It’s very bitter, I can’t ski normally. My right foot hurts so much.”

He will have himself examined in Innsbruck and hopes that it is not further cartilage damage. “I’m still a passionate skier. I’m not thinking about retiring, but I’ve had to deal with it several times. I hope it’s not that far yet,” said the 32-year-old.
