Hochfilzen : Fourcade makes the job

Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE

What a weekend for Martin Fourcade! The Rossignol’s biathlete climbed three times on the podium in Hochfilzen (Austria) with a second place in the Sprint and the Relay and a third rank during the Pursuit.

Martin Fourcade continues his good beginning of season. In Hochfilzen, the biathlete of Rossignol Team, ends second with one penalty and just four-tenths-of-a-second behind Andreas Birnbacher. Slovenia’s Jakov Fak finishes third.

I was well informed. It was not an advantage to be behind Andi today. I was just ahead with a kilometer to go, but then lost a small amount of time by the finish. I am still happy that I finished second, but sad about such a small gap between us”, explains the four time World Champion.

During the pursuit, Birnbacher and Fourcade were closed but it’s Jakov Fak who claimed the first World Cup win of his career ahead of Dimitry Malyshko and Martin Fourcade (3 penalties). He signs his 4th podium in five races. “Even with three penalties, I still wanted to go for the win.”, said Fourcade after his podium and before the relay.

On Sunday, during the relay, Martin Fourcade and his Rossi’s teammate Jean-Guillaume Béatrix take the second place. With Alexis Boeuf, they have honoured the last race of Vincent Jay, the 2010 Olympic Champion.
