Ford finished nearly a full second ahead of a pair of Norwegians with Henrik Kristoffersen and Leif Kristian Nestvold-Haugen in second and third place, 0.80 and 1.23 seconds back, respectively.

Ford was followed by Ted Ligety in 11th and Ryan Cochran-Siegle in 23rd to round out the American finishers.
