After a disappointing Friday for the Attacking Vikings in their favourite Super-G course Saslong in Val Gardena they stroke back in the Downhill on Satuday December 16th. In the Super-G Aleksander Aamodt Kilde came fourth behind German Josef Ferstl and the Austrians Max Franz and Matthias Mayer, with Svindal on place nine and Neteland number 29. In the Downhill Aksel Lund Svindal shows his superiour quality by winning in front of Kjetil Jansrud and Max Franz. After these three the list was very tight, and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde ended number 18 with an early start.
