Ryding comes second in the Alpine World Cup in Kitzbühel, Austria

Dave Ryding, 36, has come second in the prestigious Men’s Slalom in Kitzbühel, Austria, on Sunday 22 January 2023.

Last year he won the race (on Saturday 22 January 2022) and made history by becoming the first British skier to win a gold medal in the 55-year history of the Alpine World Cup.

Ryding, the oldest skier to take part, was the fastest on Run 2 (51.29) and earned an incredible second place with a total time (over both runs) of 1:45.03. Swiss skier, Daniel Yule, came first with a total time of 1:44.63, and Norwegian skier, Lucas Braathen, finished .041 seconds behind Ryding to claim third.

Before the race, Ryding stated “I still feel like I want to fight”, and fight he did with coming second. Also competing from the UK was Cambridge-born Billy Major (26) and Aldershot-born Laurie Taylor (26).
