Andre Myhrer (SWE) - NORDICA RACING TEAM - won the opening slalom of the season in Levi, Finland.
With a time of 1 min 49.55 sec over two rounds, Myhrer finished ahead Marcel Hirscher and Jens Byggmark
Myhrer, 29, last season's slalom World Cup winner, picked up his fifth success on the circuit on what proved to be a fast piste.
"The conditions were a little more difficult on the second run, but I just tried to ski my best," Myhrer said.
He continued his winning run of last season, notching up his third success in a row over the two campaigns and he commented: "I was only taking a break. I rested up as I had a bit of a bad back last year, but it's all right now and I've trained well this summer.
Not only Andrè Myhrer but also Felix Neureuther (7) and Mattias Hargin (9) in the first 10 positions.
Again a great result for NORDICA in the FIS WC COMPETITION!!
