Riders in this news : Manuela MOELGG ;
First podium of the season for Manuela Moelgg!
First podium of her career for Taïna Barioz!
After a 12th place in the first GS run raced on Monday December 28th, Italian Manuela Moelgg created the surprise, clocking the fastest time in the second leg and taking thus 2nd place in that competition. It is the first podium of the season for Manuela who climbs already 8 podiums in her career.
"I will try to win next time. 2nd place is good but 5/100 is still 5/100 behind the winner…Last year in La Molina, it was 2/100, I’m always close to the podium but I am still waiting for a first victory. Today, I was little bit angry after the first run. I felt better in the second one, and I was very fastest in the middle part.”
It was a great day also for French Taïna Barioz who clinched her career first podium here at Lienz. Taïna who was already close to the podium last season in GS with a 4th place in Are and a 5th place in Cortina, finally concretized a top 3 place, finishing at the 3rd place right behind Manuela Moelgg.
“It is a great surprise for me. My last trainings were not so good but I feel good in my mind. Everything went very fast. I think I will realize my performance today later! I absolutely want to go in Vancouver next February for the Olympics. But I still have to improve…”
Note also on this stage the great performance again from Federica Brignone, 4th.
This young Italian racer achieved a very successful start on the World Cup circuit with a 3rd top 5 place out of 4 races!
