On the final day of this competition, the world’s best skiers faced off on the mythical Chabrières piste.
We witnessed a final rich in suspense and surprises. It was the Italian skier, Simone Origone, who once again pushed his limits and won this second run with a speed of 220.102 km/hour, just 0.403 hundredths behind his rival Simon Billy who moved into second place with a speed of 219.699 km/hour. The Origone/Billy duel struck again, with only a few hundredths separating the two rivals. At the finish, the two performers gave us the shivers, the suspense was great. Bastien Montes took third place on the podium with a speed of 216.632 km/h.
On the women’s side, we bowed to Swedish champion BrittaBacklund who will have achieved a fine feat with a speed of 213.561 km/hour ahead of her greatest rival Valentina Greggio, who crossed the finish line at 209.753 km/hour. A real technical feat that will have caused a sensation in the audience. France’s Clea Martinez takes third place on the podium with a speed of 206.102 km/h.
The two leading trios will have made us dream and thrill. This second round of competition will have left its mark on this unique track. We look forward to seeing the world’s best competitors again in March at the world championships and speed masters for more thrills.
