THIS IS A FIRST-RUN STORY. READ SECOND-RUN STORY HERE.

Austrian skier Adrian Pertl led the men’s slalom at the world championships after the top 30 skiers completed their first runs.

Pertl was 0.14 seconds faster than Alex Vinatzer of Italy. Sebastian Foss-Solevåg of Norway was 0.16 behind in third.

World Cup slalom champion Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway had to make up 0.38 in the final run.

Americans Jett Seymour (10th), Luke Winters (15th) and Ben Ritchie (17th) qualified for second run.

In an unusual rule change, racers will flip the top 15 for the second run, so Winters, who finished 15th, will kick out first.
