Italy’s Dominik Paris claimed his third career Hahnenkamm downhill title on Friday, winning the fabled race with a time of 1:56.82 seconds.
Due to forecasted weather over the next few days, race organizers made the decision to run the downhill, traditionally held on Saturday, on Friday instead. Paris was joined on the podium by Switzerland’s Beat Feuz in second place, 0.20 seconds back, and Austria’s Otmar Striedinger in third, 0.37 seconds off of Paris’ winning pace.
Canadian Benjamin Thomsen finished an impressive sixth, 1.06 seconds back.
Bryce Bennett led the way for the American Downhillers in 14th place. Travis Ganong finished in 19th for two American finishers in the top 30.
