Dominik Paris wins the Kitzbühel descent for the third time

Dominik Paris has done it again. The skier of SudTirol has achieved today which is his third in the descent of Kitzbühel. Paris has finished ahead of the Swiss Beat Feuz and the surprise of the day, Otmar Striedinger, in a descent to be held tomorrow, but was moved to Friday by an unfavorable weather forecast for Saturday.

Only six men have managed to win in the Streif three times or more, and among them from today is Dominik Paris. At only 29 years old, he could join Franz Klammer (4 wins) or even Didier Cuche (5 wins) in the test record. The Italian is in great shape this season, which started with two podium finishes in North America, followed by a double win over Bormio's weekend. And since the beginning of the week in Kitzbühel, he was optimistic because he knew that this track and the current conditions fit perfectly with his ski.

It is also the third time for Beat Feuz. The third time in the second place on the podium in the Kitzbühel descent. The Swiss skier, winner of the classification of descent in the World Cup last season pushed hard and made an almost perfect race that has left him satisfied. "Of course, I'd love to win at Kitzbuehel, it's every downhill runner's dream, but today again, Dominik was unbeatable." With this fifth podium, Beat Feuz extends its advantage in the classification of the specialty in which it leads 100 points to Dominik Paris.

The surprise of the day came from the hand Otmar Striedinger, who has achieved the second podium of his career today, more than five years after his first success at the Super-G in Beaver Creek. The young Austrian of 27 years showed many times his speed when skiing during training. Unfortunately, so far this season, he had not managed to get any Top 15. With this third place in the descent of Kitzbühel, Striedinger shows that he has returned to the fight and is in the 17th position of the relegation ranking, his best ranking in his career so far.
