Matej Falat (SVK) won the Far East Cup slalom race yesterday in High1 Resort, Korea. He scored his career-best FIS points: 10. In today's slalom, he was second. Congrats, Matej!
"Last two days it got warm and in the first run the conditions were quite okay, snow was quite compact, but on the second runs it was considerably softer, like in spring :) I used skis with stiffness 40. The course setting for both runs today was fairly straight and fast. Yesterday it was quite the opposite: turny and with some tricky combinations. Overall, I'm very satisfied. I scored my two best results in slalom ever and finally, I will have a little bit better starting numbers in WC and EC."
