New performance of choice from Marco Odermatt and new podium, his 1st in downhill, at Bormio. Not enough, however, to beat Dominik Paris, 0 “24 faster and in a state of grace at home. Zurich’s Niels Hintermann completed the podium with 0” 80 behind on 1st place.
Fourth in Lake Louise in downhill at the end of November, Marco Odermatt confirmed the excellent impression left the day before during training on the demanding Stelvio. Bib number 8, the leader of the general classification of the World Cup took the lead, ahead of 0”88 Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (6th).
“I took all the risks, where I wanted”, and Marco Odermatt pointed out. “I even thought at the finish that it might be difficult to get out of 1st place. But Dominik (Paris) added a layer. On this track, it’s almost impossible to beat him”, agreed the wonder of Hergiswil.
His joy was, moreover, short-lived. 9th to set off, the master of the premises Dominik Paris has indeed performed a new demonstration in Bormio. The 32-year-old Italian thus offers himself his 20th World Cup success, the 7th overall on a track where he also won a super-G in 2018.
Behind man confirme
Winner in 2011, Didier Défago therefore remains the only Swiss to have won the Downhill World Cup in Bormio. But the day was all the same successful for Swiss-Ski, who placed a 2nd rider on the “box”: winner of Monday’s training, Niels Hintermann indeed grabbed 3rd place.
