Dave Ryding produced one of the performances of the season to shock the field that was still coming to terms with Henrik Kristoffersen crashing out of the first run, to take the lead and then hang on to take second place. Not since 1931, before the modern day World Cup was even created had a British racer been on the podium in Kitzbuehel and here was a lad, albeit a thirty year old, leading the greatest slalom of them all. Ryding held on to second place after Marcel Hirscher produced an amazing second run to take the win with Russia’s Alexander Khoroshilov,a  training partner of Ryding, in third.
