Error from Marco, so Feller takes the win. His second win.
Unfortunately Marcos error cost several places. A top 2 finish would have put Austria ahead of Switzerland in the nations cup for the men, but in the end the Swiss sweep that.

Unfortunately this highlight doesn't show how she really attacked the top steep icy section on that second run - powered it - that's where she won it. Then in her comments after she said that it didn't actually feel that great. She could really do something serious once she can get a full season and more consistency. She will be focusing on Olympics next season.

you forgot the all-important Parallel - Pinturault and Vlhova, which makes sense
is there an actual globe for that?

I don't think so. It was only one event, so wouldn't make sense. I think they are still trying to work out where the parallel events fit in. They had previously included them in the slalom title, but don't fit that. They are there for for night and city events and for entertainment value but just not the same as the serious disciplines.

This clip from Swiss TV shows it better (although poor quality). Check those first 10-12 turns. It was steep & icy, but she was pushing the limit while others were a bit more conservative.

Tina und Marc wieder zusammen


their version of ‘German’ even less comprehensible with masks

Yep, subtitles most definitely required. I could understand a few bit and pieces form Tina, but barely anything from Marc. I did actually see them do that run just prior to the team event. I've also seen Marc doing commentary and interviews and really struggle to pick up anything.

One last race after the world cup season ended: Red Bull Super Ski Cross. Two courses in one with a random draw for course before each heat, and some features never seen before. Production values as you'd expect from Red Bull, drone and static cameras to cover every metre of the run. Super close racing with several photo finishes, this exciting sport is showcased at its very best here.
