The Madonna di Campiglio downhill slalom is considered one of the most demanding events on the Alpine World Cup calendar. The slope is up to 70 percent. Strasser showed two strong runs. It was “an incredible race,” he said. “Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to win.” But third place also feels “unbelievably beautiful.”

His German teammates Sebastian Holzmann and Anton Tremmel finished 20th and 23rd. Alexander Schmid (35th) did not make the top 30 final despite a brilliant start, nor did Adrian Meissen (38th), David Ketterer (42nd) and Fabian Himmelsbach. (44th). The next men’s slalom will take place on January 4 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
