Yule joins Tomba with Madonna di Campiglio slalom repeat win

Madonna di Campiglio (Italy) (AFP) – Switzerland’s Daniel Yule won the Madonna di Campiglio slalom for the second year in a row Wednesday, emulating Italian legend Alberto Tomba who also achieved the feat.

Yule, 26, beat off the challenge of Henrik Kristoffersen and Clement Noel to claim victory.

He topped the times after the opening run at the Italian resort and kept his nerve to hold off Norway’s Kristoffersen, a prime contender for the overall World Cup title, by 0.15sec.

Frenchman Noel, the winner of Sunday’s slalom in Zagreb, was third at 0.25sec.

Kristoffersen had been a back-to-back slalom winner at Madonna di Campiglio in 2015 and 2016 while Tomba was also a two-time winner in 1987 and 1988.

For Yule, his only two World Cup wins have come on the Italian ‘3Tre’ slope.

“They should have more races here,” said the champion.

“The course is incredible as are the fans. I’d love to race here every day.”

Norwegian ace Kristoffersen skied an impressive second run in the night-time event but a small mistake in the top section proved expensive.

Despite the 0.15sec deficit, he now leads the overall World Cup slalom standings. 

Noel was just eighth after the first run but clocked the best time on the second.

It was his third podium out of four slalom races this season.

      It is likely an article aggregater, and it picked up on the term “World Cup” which is also a skiing event term.

        Yeah, we’re experiencing a snafu with the posts, and we’re trying to remove the non-soccer posts in the future.
