First of the two descents of the weekend on the Lauberhorn of Wengen, the race on Friday 14 January (14h30) looks undecided. With already four different winners in four races in the premier category, the downhill season is one of the tightest. Especially since the last to win here, in Switzerland, is called Beat Feuz. Fifth in the classification of the discipline this year, he still has not won this season and could well play the spoilsports at home.
In the classification of the specialty, the gap is tiny, only ten points separate the Italian Dominik Paris and the Austrian Matthias Mayer. On the French side, Johan Clarey is the best ranked, in 11e position, thanks to a good 6th place at Val Gardena at the start of the season. In 2013, the Savoyard had also finished 5th in Wengen. Matthieu Bailet, Blaise Giezendanner, Nils Allègre, Roy Piccard and Maxence Muzaton will also be at the start on the blue side.
