This was the first finale of the season for the 29-year-old from Maribor, who left the competition far behind from the go.

"It was hard. A hard track, icy, you have to be on the edges all the time. The tour is over, the body is getting ready to rest. I saved energy through previous runs and did my best in the finals. And here I am," Flisar said after the win.

Flisar is fourth in the overall rankings, which are topped by Chapius.
