Manuel Feller Wins Slalom in Adelboden



Manuel Feller wins a thrilling Slalom race in Adelboden beating Atle Lie McGrath by a mere 0.02 seconds. Feller's teammate Dominik Raschner finished in third position +0.23 seconds behind.

Manuel Feller secured the third Austrian victory in the third Slalom race of the season in Adelboden thanks to an aggressive second run to move from fifth to first place. It's his fourth World Cup victory and his second one of the season after winning the Slalom season opener in Gurgl.

After today's win, Manuel Feller is leading the Salom standings with 245 points.

"Today the hundredths were on my side, I've often had it the other way around. It was a brutal fight, the visibility was no longer good, and the slope was no longer easy either. The victory in Adelboden is a dream come true. Adelboden is one of my favorite races and maybe my favorite slope. Everything is in here. You have flat sections and an extremely steep slope", Feller said.


Atle Lie McGrath finished in second place today like last season. He was thrilled to be on the podium again after recovering from a second ACL operation in February 2023.

"It's an amazing result. Coming back from injury like I have now, being back on the podium so quick in probably the toughest conditions you can get. In the second half of the second run in Adelboden, the pressure is so big because you can hear everything that happens", McGrath said.


Dominik Raschner catapulted himself up to the podium from 16th place with the fastest time in the second run. Previously two 16th places - in Adelboden and Kitzbühel in 2022 - were his best results in Slalom. His only World Cup podium was in the Parallel discipline in Lech-Zürs in 2021.

Incredible, I could never have imagined that it would work like this today. I trained a lot in slalom and found my set-up. I have confidence in myself and the material. I gave it all today. This is my greatest success and I have invested a lot in it. The fact that I’m on the podium with a teammate makes it even better", Raschner said.
