The best Swiss skier was Didier Défago in sixth place. American Bode Miller did not finish the race.

Cuche, who still leads the table in the super-G discipline, managed to gain a few additional points, but remains third in the overall standings of the World Cup behind Miller and Austria's Benjamin Raich.
