"I really don't know how I managed to do this today," Odermatt said afterwards.
"I was tired and my emotions are somewhere. I'm really happy about my skiing today.
We try and make it interesting for the viewers. In the last years somehow in the spring when I get tired I don't have enough power to break. We just go on.
Odermatt is aiming to become the first Swiss skier to win the Giant Slalom, Crystal Globe and tour title since 2009.
