Stefano Gross Third place in front of his crowd
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. 50 years later, the event is still running and attracting thousands of people for the traditional night race on 22nd of December.
On this occasion, Henrik Kristoffersen won his second slalom in a row, both this season with a first win two weeks ago in Val d'Isère and in Madonna di Campiglio, where he already triumphed last year. The Norwegian has been followed by Marcel Hirscher and in third place, our Voelkl athlete Stefano Gross who grabbed his 10th World Cup podium. To realise this performance in front of his home crowd meant a lot to him, especially as he wasn't in his best shape coming into the race. We all know Stefano is a big fighter and also this time he shown us his skills.
Thank you Stefano!
