Norwegian Timon Haugan takes the first victory of his career at the World Cup final – Meillard in fourth place

Loic Meillard ends his season just outside the podium.

On Sunday, Timon Haugan won the slalom in Saalbach, Austria. The best Swiss in Loic Meillard, who ends up in fourth place.

Loïc Meillard narrowly misses the next podium place. Romand came fourth in the slalom won by Norwegian Timon Haugan at the season finale in Saalbach. Marco Rochat also impressed once again in sixth place.

Meillard was eleven hundredths short of being able to attend the award ceremony in the slalom the day after his victory in the giant slalom. The man from Neuchâtel, who has lived in Valais for many years, was third after the first round, but slipped back one position in the decision.

Rochat ended what was by far his best World Cup season to date with another very good result. 6th place fits perfectly with the strong results of the Vaudois, who equaled his best at this level by finishing fourth in Schladming, and also came fifth in Adelboden and sixth in Wengen.

There were also World Cup points for Luca Aerni for 14th place, whereas Daniel Yule remained without a countable result. The winner of the slalom in Chamonix finished 16th, missing the top 15 by three hundredths.

Haugan successfully defended his half-time lead and achieved his first victory in the World Cup. His premiere was also the first win of the season for Norway’s men’s team. Haugan is one of the rising stars this winter. He had already come second in the slalom in Schladming and third in the second giant slalom in Aspen, Colorado.
