Paris races onto the podium – Sarrazin is the kitz king

This time it wasn't enough to get to the front, but Dominik Paris was finally able to celebrate in the finish area. The Ultner made it onto the podium at the Hahnenkamm downhill run on Saturday. Meanwhile, Frenchman Cyprien Sarrazin celebrated his 2nd victory within 2 days.

Paris was in attack mode from the start and was fast, but was able to match the fabulous time of Cyprien Sarrazin, who had already won the Kitzbühel downhill run on Friday, don't be dangerous. In the end it was enough for 3rd place (+1,44 seconds). Given the outstanding performance of Sarrazin and the strong second-placed Swiss Marco Odermatt, there wasn't much more possible here. The Austrian Stefan Babinsky landed in 4th place (+1,44).

Florian Schieder from Castelrotto, who took second place yesterday, didn't get an optimal line at the beginning and lost a lot of time, especially in the upper part of the route. In the further course he showed a decent drive. In the final tally this time they came in 2th place, just behind the two Azzurri Mattia Casse and Guglielmo Bosca, who ended up in 15th place at the same time. While yesterday it was a measly 13 hundredths, today Schieder was 5 seconds behind the victorious Sarrazin. Meanwhile, there was nothing to gain for Gaiser Christof Innerhofer. He didn't get higher than 2,13th place.

For Sarrazin it was the 2nd Kitzbühel victory - within just 2 days. The Frenchman, who now has a total of 5 World Cup victories to his name, showed a determined drive and risked a lot. In the end he conjured up an outstanding descent on the Streif and achieved a confident best time. His compatriots Maxence Muzaton in 5th, Blaise Giezendanner in 7th and Nils Allegre in 9th completed the strong result of the French team.
