Thomas Driesen, who had shown an impressive World Cup comeback the day before finishing eighth in the downhill after a two-and-a-half-year break, wasted points in his weaker system when Swiss Marco Odermatt won 31st.
Simon Gaucher was fourteenth, Romaid Bowman seventeenth and Josef Verstel twenty-seventh.
“I’m very satisfied. In one section, I haven’t stayed on the train as much,” said Sander, who met World Cup standards.

Caviezel is infamously situated on Lake Louise
Switzerland’s Mauro Caviezel fell hard on Sunday. The 34-year-old lost control after contacting the goal post and was hit in the head and suffered cuts to his face.
Although Caviezel was able to stand again after treatment, he was flown away by helicopter after a long break in the race.
Five-time World Cup winner Dreßen has not started in a World Cup final since March 2020. Since then, the 29-year-old has undergone hip and knee surgery. Only in the 2021 World Cup did he try his luck between them.
