The results are in from a day of incredible racing in Lenzerheide. Amaury Pierron laid down a wild run today that saw him take his third win of the season and puts him within a hundred points of Loic Bruni. Greg Minnaar came closest to the fast Frenchman with a fast bottom half of the track that drew him within a second of Pierron. Current series leader Loic Bruni couldn't take the win today but he secured a strong finish in third. Troy Brosnan was the only other rider to get within three seconds of the fastest time and he will be glad to be leaving Lenzerheide with a podium finish. The final step of today's Elite Men's podium goes to Danny Hart who will be looking for more at World Champs and the final World Cup in Snowshoe.
In the Elite Women's race, Marine Cabirou laid down an incredible run in the greasy conditions to secure her second Elite Wolrd Cup win just a week after her first in Val di Sole. Second place would go to Tracey Hannah who could have secured the overall today but will instead carry on the fight with Cabirou at the final round in Snowshoe. Third place goes to Swiss rider Emilie Siegenthaler who had a return to form today going seven seconds back from the top two women. Kate Weatherly came down the hill early but still manages a top-five finish in fourth and Camille Balanche made it two Swiss riders in the top five crossing the line 7.649
seconds back from Cabirou.
The Junior racing saw Vali Höll dominate once again with a breathtaking 29 second lead over Anna Newkirk, her move to the Elites next year is going to be interesting to watch. In the men's Canadian Seth Sherlock just beat Jonosch Klaus to the top spot for his first World Cup win.
