7 – Marco Odermatt (SUI): Today's favorite one. Odermatt on a perfect first jump, but he also goes wide, but stays on the move. The Swiss with a very strong intermediate time would be enough to take the lead in the end. An incredible performance by Odermatt who clocked 1:53.87. Is it win time already?

6 – Ryan Cochran-Siegel (USA): He had a strong race yesterday and things are going well for the American today. Ryan Cochran-Siegle risks everything and takes a narrow lead.

5 – Justin Mauricier (SUI): Odermatt's friend comes out wide and he can't hold the line. He has to push harder and as a result loses a lot of time. In the lower section he goes “all in” and comes out ahead again. In the end he had to concede defeat to Hemetzberger.

4 – Adrien Theaux (FRA): The first Frenchman started today. “He couldn't put pressure on the skis,” says Felix Neurether after the first part. However, he has been in the lead for a while. But the mistakes keep piling up – eventually third place.

3 – Romet Baumann (GER): The oldest player in the German team is in the starting box. Early on he makes a big mistake that costs him a lot of time. In the middle section he again works a little, but again loses a lot. There is a gap of 0.73 seconds at the end.

2 – Daniel Hemetzberger (AUT): He is a bit unwell and has a knee problem. He is chasing Sander's time and is easily in the lead.

1 – Andreas Sander (GER): Germany start today in Streif. He has some trouble on a very snowy slope. The result was 1:55.50. We will have to wait and see what this time is worth.

Updated on January 20, 10:43 am: The race is completely sold out. Felix Neureuther believes it will be an exciting race as many drivers have what it takes to win. In addition to Marco Odermatt, former slalom rider Dominic Paris (Italy) and the Austrians were named.

“It is a shame that this has happened. It was known somewhere. I was in the room with him and saw how much he had to invest in driving,” his teammate Romet Baumann said of Dresen's early career finish. “Of course you wouldn't want it to end like that physically,” said Andreas Sander, who finished second downhill at the 2021 world championships, but Tressen “definitely made the right decision”.

Dresen will compete in his 80th World Cup race in Kitzbühel. Exactly six years ago, he sensationally achieved his first victory in Streif. (Smr)
