Vincent Kriechmayr wins in Kvitfjell the last Super-G race before the Finals in Saalbach. Canadian Jeffrey Read finished in second position 0.17 seconds behind the Austrian. Dominik Paris and Marco Odermatt shared the third position 0.19 seconds behind Kriechmayr. He has won 18 times in the World Cup and finished on the podium 35 times.

It's Kriechmayr's second win in the World Cup this season and his third podium. He won the first Super-G of the season at the Saslong racecourse in Val Gardena-Gröden. Kriechmayr has won more than one World Cup Super-G event in a single season for the fourth time, following 2017-2018 (2), 2019-2020 (2), and 2020-2021 (2).

Kriechmayr has won nine World Cup Super-G events, second-most among Austrian men, behind Hermann Maier (24).

"The top of my run was pretty good and also in the bottom, in the middle there was one turn that was not perfect, but I tried to push on the limit. On the Tommy Moe, I made speed for the finish", Kriechmayr said.

"There is no hope, Odermatt is impressive. He is 80 points in front so I am not hoping for the globe", he added.

Jeffrey Read achieved today his first podium in the Alpine Ski World Cup. His best result before today was fifth place in the Super-G in the 2023 Finals in Soldeu, Andorra.

"I’m really excited, and happy with how I was able to throw it down out there. Kvitfjell is always a notoriously tight race. I love this race and it is so much fun and a great vibe. There’s something about the snow I think. It is similar to home, what we train on. It gives you confidence and it clicks when you are here", Read said.

Marco Odermatt leads the Super-G standings with 450 points. Kriechmayr is second with 369 points, 81 behind the Swiss.
