It was the first World Cup victory for 18-year-old Miki, and with her second top-3 finish in parallel slalom in 2021/22, the Japanese rider has now moved into second spot in the ranking, with just one more parallel slalom competition left in the season.
In the same time Zogg snagged her second PSL victory of the campaign, as she maintained her lead in the standing and with 29 points advantage ahead of the season grand finale in Berchtesgaden, the Swiss veteran is looking comfortable on her way to claim yet another parallel slalom World Cup crystal globe.
Third place on the day went to Ramona Theresia Hofmeister (GER), who came victorious against Daniela Ulbing in the small final matchup.
In the overall parallel standing Daniela Ulbing leads the way with 432 points, while Zogg now moved into second place with 420 points. Hofmeister dropped into third place with 397 points.
Things were equally exciting over on the men’s side of competition, with the Italian Snowboard Team finally showing the performance they used to deliver day-in and day-out in the last two seasons, putting as many as 6 riders into final top-16.
And while everyone would expect the likes of Roland Fischnaller or Edwin Coratti to lead the charge for the home team, it was Marc Hofer, who came with an unexpected performance as he stormed to his maiden World Cup victory.
On his way to victory, Hofer came victorious against some of the most decorated athletes in the games, first winning against Fischnaller and then beating the Olympic champion Benjamin Karl. In the semis Hofer edged out Sangho Lee (KOR) before comfortably reaching for victory in all-Italian final against his teammate Coratti.
