Marcel Hirscher Wins Giant Slalom in Beaver Creek

An outstanding racing weekend took an end today at Beaver Creek with the Birds of Prey giant slalom, the first race of the season in this discipline, as the opening in Sölden had to be cancelled due to a storm.
Marcel Hirscher clocked the fastest time in today's Giant Slalom and earned his 46th World Cup victory.
In the second place, Henrik Kristoffersen claims his 32nd World Cup Podium, +0.88 off the leader’s time.
Stefan Luitz rounded up the podium +1.03 behind Hirscher.
The leading trio after the first run had some big names with Germany’s Stefan Luitz clocking the fastest time ahead of Ted Ligety (+0.29) and Marcel Hirscher (+0.39). Not far behind, World Championships medalist Manuel Feller and Swiss GS specialist Justin Murisier were tied in fourth place with +0.64.
In the second run, Marcel Hirscher was able to upgrade his skiing even more and skied to the first step of the podium, only three and a half months after his ankle fracture.
