Felix Neureuther produced a solid and yet attacking second run to wrestle the lead away from Henrik Kristoffersen to win the opening Slalom of the 2017 – 2018 Audi FIS Slalom World Cup. A stunning second run by Mattias Hargin say him rise from 12th after the first run and take third. For many though it will be the man who crashed out on the second run when seemingly heading for a maiden World Cup race win that stole the headlines. Dave Ryding was 0.51 ahead coming off the steep and heading to the Finish when he slid out on his inside ski.
