On the second run he raced from position 9 to victory signaling to his competition: The best ski racer of the present unleashes this performance when he races for the 6th Big Crystal Globe in series. An important victory for the Redster hero: 388 points in the lead of the overall World Cup makes him a class of his own also in the Schladming night race in the red jersey of the king of the world of slalom.
On the second run, Marcel Hirscher used his ski set from Wengen in a dream race to victory. It was one of those races after which the ski world gave standing ovations to the Redster hero. On the first run he was far behind and in the end so far ahead - only Marcel can do that. This gap (1.02), this classification (9th), and as Marcel said himself "the fact that Henrik Kristoffersen wasn’t in the race", had activated the absolute racer within him. The racer who wasn’t always focused with discipline on the 6th Big Globe in series and had to race for it with calculated risk: 100 percent risk. 100 percent performance. 100 percent Marcel. "This was a signal and the timing achieves something with Marcel's competitors: such a powerful demonstration at the peak of the slalom season, just before the World Cup in St. Moritz poses a mental challenge for the rest of the world. Schladming is next, where Marcel has often shown that he is mentally the greatest. The pace he sets is quite extreme", Atomic Race Manager Christian Höflehner summarizes, happy with his super star and the entire race weekend.
