Description: Marcel Hirsher who yesterday won the giant slalom today was the best - fast in the slalom, which is part of the World Cup - Men's Alpine Ski Bansko. The Austrian won the giant slalom after being second after the first run but after a strong second downhill win the race with a total time 2:25,35 min < br>
Second stay Masimiliyano Blardone (Italy) - 2:26,74, and a third on the podium went Marcel Mathis (Austria), who finished in 2:26,81.
The leader after the first run Ted Ligeti (USA) made a blunder in the upper slope "Alberto Tomba" and although the finish remained 27th in the final standings.
After today's triumph Hirsher said he is very happy after these two great success on the track "Alberto Tomba".

After this victory Hirsher approached the driver in the overall standings Ivica Kostelic (Croatia), who missed the start in the Pirin resort because of injury.

- Marcel, two wins in two days ... How is this done?
- Before the race I concentrated, I drove it well and it worked. I'm leaving with the attitude to become the first at any cost. Just go down as I can, and won. Today was my day. I was lucky and the weather and the crowd was with me. It also motivates me to look for victory again.

- After this victory you get closer to 18 points of leader in the standings for the Big Crystal Globe - Ivica Kostelic (Croatia). Take advantage of any opportunity to attack the first position and accordingly Cup?
- At this stage for me is more important to concentrate on the remaining races of the SK. If you drive well and at present, we will come and the points I need to win the big crystal globe.

- Yesterday the head of the International Ski Federation (FIS) Gianfranco Kasper said that after recovering Kostelic, it will make a good downhill, will go a few doors and no problem going to win SC. How would you comment this?
- OK, this is a good idea. Let's do it, I can do the same.
