Alpine Combined December 29th

The final day in Bormio saw the debut of the new combined format with a second run start order favoring speed skiers rather than tech skiers.
Christopher Neumayer (AUT) high-sided himself entering the infamous traverse section and had to be airlifted off course.
Neumayer was found to have suffered a torn ACL and a tibial head fracture during his crash.

I really don’t know where that came from… I felt pretty good in the warmups and was coming in hot off a second place at Cochran’s TGFS last March.

Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (NOR) had the lead after the combined leg and hung on for a second-place finish.
Alexis Pinturault (FRA) made up a 0.97-second deficit in order to take the combined win.
