• An eventful start to the race for the descenders. After the postponement caused by gusts of wind, the downhill specialists are finally gone. The first bibs, including the Frenchman Matthieu Bailet, encountered difficulties, especially at the top of the course. The Swiss Beat Feuz is currently in the lead, ahead of Frenchman Johan Clarey.
