Madonna di Campiglio is the oldest Italian World Cup venue, as they hold a Slalom in 1966/67, the year of the foundation of the World Cup. More than 50 years later, the event is still running and attracting thousands of fans for the traditional night race.
Today the night Slalom in Madonna di Campiglio delivered the same winner than last season, with Daniel Yule claiming his second victory in the World Cup with Henrik Kristoffersen and Clement Noel rounding out the podium.
"Zagreb was a really tough slalom for me, but to turn it around this way is simply amazing. Now I am really looking forward to the rest of January!", said the Swiss slalom skier.

Daniel Yule was leading already after run 1 and had to defend himself from the attacks the current best two slalom skiers on the tour, Henrik Kristoffersen (NOR) and Clement Noel (FRA).
Kristoffersen, second after the first run, skied an impressive second run but due to a small mistake in the top section, he was not able to take his third victory in Campiglio. Kristoffersen finished second (+0.15s) and is now leading the Slalom standings. 

Clement Noel, eight after the first run, scored the best time in the second run and climbed up 5 positions to take the third step of the podium (+0.25 s). It's the third podium for the young talent out of four slalom races this season.
