Slalom in Chamonix: Clément Noël leads, ÖSV team far behind

Uncertainty in red-white-red

The interim balance that the Austrian technologists must draw is, to put it mildly, rather uneven. Even though Manuel Feller, who was supposed to be their best, made a critical error and just avoided being eliminated, he is already 1.65 seconds down at the halfway point, ex aequo with his Vorarlberg teammate Johannes Strolz.

“That’s hardly the point, though; it took no longer than a half-second. I had absolutely no speed, and I was starving “Feller remarked. “To increase our speed, we need to develop a new kind of material,” the author said.

He was two hundredths of a second quicker than his fellow Tyrolean Fabio Gstrein, who has been in the top ten four times this winter but is just as far from the top ten and his own aspirations as his teammates.
