Riders in this news :  Resi STIEGLER

The first men event of the Junior World Championships took place in Roccaraso in Italia. During the downhill, the American of Team Rossignol, Ryan Cochran-Siegle (bib 1)finishes first before Ralph Weber and Nils Mani. Mathieu Faivre (Rossignol), ends 4th.

Ryan Cochran-Siegle is born in 1972 and his mother is Barbara Ann Cochran, 1972 Olympic slalom gold medalist. The young American has begun in World Cup this year in Lake Louise. In Super G, he finishes two times in the thirty (29th in Beaver Creek and 26th in Crans-Montana). Congratulations to him!

The earlier you started today was definitely better. I had a good training the first day, but yesterday things didn't work out, and I was not expecting a win like this. The run was good, I like the terrain here, and it's a lot of fun. Surely it's special to have my mum here, winning in front of here makes me proud, and by taking the first win it definitely gives me more confidence for the coming races. I have good chances in super g, but in the technical races I will have to do my best". (Source: fisalpine.com)

Note that yesterday Petra Vlhova from Team Rossignol ends third. On Saturday, the girls will have a slalom and on Sunday, the boys will have a Super G.
