If the form shown by Aksel Lund Svindal and Kjetil Jansrud continues, it will be a long season for the rest of the speed skiers on the World Cup. Between them they have been fastest on every single run of the Downhill and Super G training runs and races this season. Crucially for Svindal, he has won the important runs, the races. This was his third win of the season, adding some pressure already to the race for the Overall onto Marcel Hirscher perhaps. Evidence of this will be seen in the Giant Slalom on Sunday. Guillermo Fayed made it a brand clean sweep for Head with third place.
