Beat Feuz in Kitzbühel: The "eternal second" wins twice on the Streif


He finished second four times, now the Swiss Beat Feuz celebrated a double success in the descent on the Hahnenkamm - the last time a skier succeeded 26 years ago. Two German racing drivers finished in the top ten.

Beat Feuz also won the second downhill race in Kitzbühel.

The Swiss, who was always considered second on the Streif, relegated the French Johan Clarey (+0.17 seconds) and the Austrian Matthias Mayer (+0.38) to the places.

Feuz celebrated a double success after his victory on Friday.

The race had been postponed on Saturday due to adverse weather conditions, before the start of the Swiss it was briefly interrupted on Sunday due to fog in the upper part of the track.

Since the Frenchman Luc Alphand in 1995, no driver could win two downhill races in Kitzbühel in one weekend.

Feuz had previously finished second four times on the Streif.

Two of the German ski racers missed the podium, but still achieved a good result.

Romed Baumann crossed the finish line in fifth (+0.97), Andreas Sander (+1.00) right behind.

Baumann was still not satisfied with poor visibility.

"Somehow I didn't quite get the drive that I wanted," he said on ZDF.

Dominik Schwaiger finished 17th, Josef Ferstl clearly missed the top positions with a gap of 2.56 seconds. 

The first descent on Friday, which was added to the program as a replacement for the failed Lauberhorn descent, caused problems.

Wind, poor visibility and heavy falls shaped the race, which was canceled after 30 starters and could therefore also be included in the ranking.

With his first victory in the famous Hahnenkamm race, Feuz relegated Austrian Matthias Mayer and three-time winner Dominik Paris from Italy to the places.

On Monday (10.45 a.m., TV: ZDF, Eurosport) the Super-G is still on the program in Kitzbühel.
