Vouilloz Still Has What it Takes

Aug 31, 2002
After missing most of this season because of an injured hand, Nicolas Vouilloz showed he still has what it takes winning his tenth rainbow jersey in Kaprun today. Vouilloz' time of 5:08.53 put him just .54 seconds ahead of last years runner up Steve Peat. Chris Kovarik rounded out the podium while #1 qualifier Cedric Gracia settled for fourth. Johnny Waddell, fresh off his Norba win at Mt Snow, finished fifth. Canadian Dustin Adams was top North American in 17th place. In the women's DH, it was once again all Anne-Caroline Chausson on top of the field, this time followed by Fionn Griffiths and Missy Giove. Tracey Moseley and Sabrina Jonnier rounded out the top five.Chausson's win also gives her a tenth rainbow jersey, tying her with fellow countryman Vouilloz. Speaking of Vouilloz, this season may be Nico's last as he is considering retirement. "The timing would be good. I am the best now." Vouilloz may return each year for the World's to make it more of a semi-retirement. The World Cup series wraps up next weekend in Les Gets, France where Peat, Kovaric and Gracia will be duking it out for the men's overall DH title.
