Palisades Tahoe: Linus Straßer narrowly misses victory in California – Manuel Feller takes his fourth win of the season

Palisades Tahoe: Linus Straßer narrowly misses victory in California – Manuel Feller takes his fourth win of the season

Ski racer Linus Straßer narrowly missed out on his third World Cup win of the season.

In the slalom race in Palisades-Tahoe, California, the man from Munich came in third place behind Austria's Manuel Wieler and Noel Clement of France, with Strasser still in the lead by four tenths of a second after the first run.

In the end, Strasser was 0.38 seconds behind Feller who extended his World Cup discipline lead to 590 points.

The 31-year-old Strasser (386) remains in second place. There are still three slalom races left in the winter ski season, and it will now be difficult to catch Feller in the battle for the little crystal ball.

Straßer misses out on victory in slalom race number three

Strasser had previously won the World Cup in slalom in Kitzbühel and Schladming, and in the United States he could catch up with big names.

The last time Thomas Driessen, who resigned at the beginning of the year, achieved three German victories in one season was in 2019/20, and Felix Neureuther also achieved three victories in the slalom from January to March 2014.

Straßer was the only DSV player in the second round. Anton Tremmel (Rotach-Egren / 38th place), Sebastian Holzmann (Oberstdorf / 40th place) and Fabian Himmelsbach (Sonthoven / 46th place) did not make it into the top 30.
