Henrik Kristoffersen has signed the second podium of his career in slalom with a third place in Adelboden behind Marcel Hirscher and Andre Myhrer. The talented young Norwegian has realized a strong second run and he is now among the best technician of the World Cup. It’s the second podium of the season for the Rossignol racer after his third place in Levi.
"I used to watch this race as a kid. Adelboden is one of the classics and it’s a spectacular hill and when you come into the final hill and see the huge crowd it’s pretty amazing. It's crazy with 30,000 people cheering for you when you come down, it's your moment. This finish definitely ranks pretty high on my list." (Quote : Fis Alpine)
In Giant Slalom, on Saturday, Henrik Kristoffersen has taken the 13th place after a big fright in the first run. A man has cut his trajectory just after a gate! His teammate Leif Kristian Haugen claimed his best World Cup career result with a 5th place.
