Manuel Feller has extended his lead in the Slalom World Cup in springtime Chamonix. The Tyrolean finished fourth on Sunday and increased his lead in the discipline rankings over the German Linus Straßer (14th), who was recently successful in Kitzbühel and Schladming. The victory went to the Swiss Daniel Yule, who went from 30th place to first place after the first run when the slopes were fading. This has never been achieved before in the men’s Slalom World Cup.

Loic Meillard, another Swiss, came second, while the Frenchman Clement Noel, who was leading after the first round, came third. Noel was 1.53 seconds ahead of Yule at halftime. It was Yule’s seventh World Cup victory.

In the end, Feller was 0.34 seconds behind Yule. “It was a very solid second run, definitely acceptable. A few hundredths here or there, then it’s a podium.”

Dominik Raschner was the second best Austrian in fifth place, 0.37 seconds behind the winner. Fabio Gstrein came 13th, Johannes Strolz came in right behind him. Michael Matt also ended up in the top 20 in 19th place. Joshua Sturm scored World Cup points for the first time in 25th place, Adrian Pertl came in 29th.
