Fabien Claude’s comeback, Florent Claude’s confirmation, Clément Noël’s 8th place in the slalom… We summarize Sunday’s day for the Vosges

Just like a week before, Fabien Claude started the Ruhpolding World Cup round averaging 7/10 in shooting and ultimately finished 37th in the sprint despite a top-level ski time. “Since the beginning of the season, I have been making very good chases, but I don’t want to go that far anymore”, however, the basurois had entrusted us in the preamble.

His reaction this Sunday was magnificent. From the first round, the Vosges found themselves in the top 10 and after the two fake perfect shots (10/10), it was the top 5 that was in doubt. “Given the gaps at the start, I knew I could gain ten places from the first lap if I didn’t stay too long on the skis. I’m happy with my shots lying down”, says Fabien Claude.

This great comeback could have taken on even more color with one less foul in the shooting range during last qualifying (17/20 overall). But Fabien Claude set the record straight with this excellent recovery of 25 places and a 12th place finish. 12th is also his place in the provisional World Cup standings.
