The day after his second place on the downhill, skier Cyprien Sarrazin shone again on Friday January 12 in Wengen, Switzerland, by winning the Super-G. He thus signs his second success of the winter after his coronation, on December 28, in downhill on the dizzying track of Bormio, in Italy.

Starting from bib 3, the 29-year-old athlete finished ahead of the Swiss Marco Odermatt (58/100th) and the Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (1 sec), who were also invited to the podium this Thursday – respectively 1st and 3rd of the descent.

Cyprien Sarrazin gives France its first victory in Super-G in the World Cup for 10 years and the success of Alexis Pinturault, on March 13, 2014, in Lenzerheide (Switzerland).

The rest of the season threatened

The 32-year-old skier from Courchevel was, despite himself, one of the participants in today’s event. The combined world champion last winter suffered an impressive fall after a poor recovery on a jump on the legendary Lauberhorn piste. The race was interrupted while he was evacuated by helicopter.

He “suffers from his left knee and pain in his wrist”, indicated the media manager of the French Ski Federation, specifying that Alexis Pinturault had been transported to the hospital in Interlaken (Switzerland) and that he was not had not lost consciousness.

This fall could be synonymous with the end of the season for the skier, who became a father a few days earlier. Thursday in Wengen, he signed the best result of his career in downhill (9th), he who now wants to exist in the premier discipline.

The skiers continue with a new descent on Saturday in Wengen before giving way to slalomers on Sunday.
