Reichelt clinches World Cup downhill in Norway

Austria’s Hannes Reichelt produced yet another flawless run to claim his second straight World Cup downhill victory in Norway on Saturday.

Fresh from winning in Garmish-Partenkirchen, the super-G world champion, dominated his opponents from the outset and completed the Kvitfjell course in an impressive time of 1 minute, 29.65 seconds to secure the title ahead of Canada’s Manuel Osborne-Paradis.

It was Reichelt’s 11th career victory and this result sees him
close the gap on current overall leader Kjetil Jansrud to just 20 points going into the final race of the season.

Werner Heel of Italy came home third while France’s Guillermo Fayed just missed out on a podium finish, 0.40 back, followed by world downhill champion Patrick Kueng of Switzerland and worlds silver medalist Travis Ganong.
