WINNERS IN VAL GARDENA

The first skier to enter the winner’s circle of Val Gardena was the Swiss downhill racer Jean-Daniel Dätwyler, that on occasion also celebrated his first success in the World Cup. Only the best have won on the 17 humps of the Saslong from Bernard Russi to Franz Klammer, Pirmin Zurbriggen to Patrick Ortlieb and others. It has never been a lucky slope for Italian skiiers, except for the “King of Val Gardena” Kristian Ghedina, able to triumph on this run four times in his career (1996, 1998, 1999 and 2001) and to take his place on the podium in three other circumstances. In addition to te four-time champion of Pieve di Cadore, Italy has triumphed just one other time with Herbert Plank back in 1977. And now we’ll see today’s champions, Aksel Lund Svindal, Dominik Paris, Peter Fill, Kjetil Jansrud, Beat Feuz– who will be the best?
