Under perfect conditions Saturday, Slovenia’s Zan Kranjec topped a tight field in the men’s giant slalom World Cup in Adelboden. Kranjec captured the top spot on the podium ahead of Croatia’s Filip Zubcic, second, who finished 0.29 seconds back, while third-place position was split between France’s Victor Muffat-Jeandet and Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen, who were both 0.64 seconds back. Norway’s Aleksander Aamodt Kilde rounded out the top five.
In seventh, Ted Ligety was the top American finisher, 0.95 seconds off the lead. It was Ligety’s best result since Soelden, where he finished fifth earlier this season. Next best for the Americans, Ryan Cochran-Siegle finished in 18th position, 2.21 seconds out. American Tommy Ford fell victim to an over-pressured ski and did not finish his first run.
