Mathieu Faivre Finds Its Way to the Top


After finishing in second place in yesterday’s Giant Slalom, Mathieu Faivre got back to his winning ways in commanding fashion, topping Switzerland’s Marco Odermatt by 0.75 seconds and teammate Alexis Pinturault by 0.81.

It is his second career World Cup victory. He has put together the strongest three races of his career with three straight podiums, including the World Championship gold in Cortina 2021.

Faivre's previous World Cup win was in Val d’Isère, France, in December 2016.



For Marco Odermatt, today’s second place marks his seventh World Cup podium this season and keeps him in the hunt for the Overall World Cup title as he sits 210 points behind current leader Alexis Pinturault.

He is also on the chase of the French skier for the Giant Slalom discipline globe as Pinturault lost a bit of ground on Odermatt today, who now trails only by 25 points.



Alexis Pinturault finished in third place just 0.06 seconds behind Odermatt. The French men occupied three of the top four spots today, with Thibaut Favrot just missing out on the podium.
