Ofterschwang / Giant Slalom: First podium for Curtoni !

Riders in this news :  Irene CURTONI  ; Tessa WORLEY

It was a beautiful day in Germany for Team Rossignol during the first giant slalom of Ofterschwang. Irene Curtoni ends third equally with Elisabeth Goergl. The Italian, regularly in the Top 15 of the discipline, signs the first podium of her career.

On the fifth place and at only two hundredth of the podium, Jessica Lindell-Vikarby made a good result today. Rather specialized in speed disciplines, the Swede showed interesting things in giant. 8th in Sölden in the beginning of season, she marks the best result of her career in this event.

On the other hand, Tessa Worley realizes a small disappointing performance and loses her red bib of leader of giant's World cup. Seventh after the first leg, she will stay in this rank. Viktoria Rebensburg takes the 100 points of the victory today. The skier of the Grand-Bornand counts now 44 points of delay on the German but stays nevertheless in ambush.

Three other racers form Team Rossignol entered in the Top 15 : Federica Brignone (13th), Lara Gut (14th) and Anémone Marmottan (15th).
