Crans-Montana : Hudec 2nd ! Zurbriggen and Innerhofer in the Top 6

Riders in this news :  Jan HUDEC

The first Super G of this Swiss weekend in Crans-Montana kept all its promises. Under the sun and in spite of high temperatures, the show and the suspense were there. Left with the number 6, Jan Hudec (Rossignol) benefited from perfect conditions and settled down at the head of the race after a very well run. In confidence since his victory in Chamonix in downhill few weeks ago, the Canadian held this first place until the run of Didier Cuche (number 20). The Swiss took control of the Super G for only sixteen hundredth.

Silvan Zurbriggen(Rossignol) also benefited from a very good number (bib 7) and he took advantage of it. This season is complicated for the Swiss. But, at home, he proved that he had the power to take place among the best. Third during a long time, he was dislodged by Benjamin Raich and ends on the fourth place, his best result in this discipline this season. In spite of a fall in the training last week, he showed that we can count on him this weekend.

In a race where the fifteen first ones are held on less than one second, Christof Innerhofer (Rossignol) achieved a nice run in spite of a high number and conditions of snow which do not suit to him necessarily. He ends sixth. This beautiful group result is thus necessarily promising for the end of the weekend. A Super G and a giant are scheduled.
