Follow the best athletes in action...
• Lucas BRAATHEN (NOR)
Born on 19 April 2000.
The Norwegian phenomenon has started the season on a high note with two victories this season in Val d'Isère and Adelboden. Leader of the 2023 World Cup slalom ranking, his enthusiasm and talent made him the favourite. Unfortunately, he had to undergo an operation on Tuesday 31 January for appendicitis, and is obviously out for the Chamonix slalom.
• Henrik KRISTOFFERSEN (NOR)
Born on 2 July 1994.
Henrik Kristoffersen is the man with one of the best World Cup records going into the new season. Winner in Garmisch Partenkirchen and Wengen this year, 2nd in the overall World Cup slalom ranking, the fine Norwegian technician will not be satisfied with just making up the numbers..
• Clément NOEL (FRA)
Born on 3 May 1997.
Clément Noêl is the 2022 Olympic slalom champion and double winner of the event in 2020 and 2021. The talented Frenchman will be the man to beat and the headliner of the French selection. His success in Schladming just before the Chamonix event shows him to be in good shape again.
• Daniel YULE (SUI)
Born on 18 February 1993.
3rd in the 2023 World Cup slalom ranking and a frequent participant in legendary events: winner in Madonna di Campiglio and Kitzbühel, he will be hungry for victory in Chamonix. There is no doubt that this year he will want to be at the front of the pack.
• Ramon ZENHÄUSERN (SUI)
Born on 4 May 1992.
Ramon Zenhaeusern has overturned the codes of slalom by imposing his giant style (he is 2m tall) and his unique trajectories. As friendly as he is efficient (7th in the overall World Cup slalom ranking), the Swiss rider intends to climb on the podium.
• Loic MEILLARD (SUI)
Born on 29 October 1996.
In form at the beginning of the season (winner of the giant slalom in Schladming), collector of podiums, he already had the honour of taming the Green in 2020 by winning the parallel giant. A sweet taste that he hopes to taste again this winter in slalom.
• Linus STRASSER (GER)
Born on November 6th 1992.
Very successful this season and well placed in the last slaloms (2 podiums this season). His last slalom victory was in January 2022 in Schladming.
• Dave RYDING (GBR)
Born on 5 December 1986.
In the World Cup, he took part in his first race in December 2009, and has competed in the Olympic Games in 2010, 2014, 2018 and 2022. He has been performing well this year (2nd in Kitzbuehel) and could be on the podium.
• Manuel FELLER (AUT)
Born on 13 October 1992.
