Cyprien Sarrazin remporte le Super-G de Wengen (Suisse). MAXPPP – JEAN-CHRISTOPHE BOTT
Cyprien Sarrazin wins the Super-G in Wengen (Switzerland). After his second place on the downhill the day before, the Frenchman confirmed his current form.
Cyprien Sarrazin progresses, and wins. The Gapençais dominated the competition in Switzerland to win the Super-G in Wengen, ahead of the regional rider of the stage, Marco Odermatt.
We take the same ones and start again. Sarrazin, Odermatt, and Kilde make up the podium for this Super-G. But unlike the day before, it was the tricolor that was able to perform the best in this round.
The CO Dévoluy skier is ahead of Marco Odermatt by 58 hundredths, and Aleksander Kilde by a second. An excellent performance since the last French victory in Super-G dates back to 2014. At the time, Alexis Pinturault won in Lenzerheide. At the same time, he becomes the fourth Frenchman to win in this category.
Concern for Alexis Pinturault
This Friday, the round was especially marked by a terrible fall by Alexis Pinturault. The Frenchman, who landed badly on a jump, was evacuated by helicopter and could be hit in the left knee and wrist.

A second descent is planned tomorrow, still in Wengen (12:30 p.m.). Most certainly without the Savoyard, for whom the fall would mark the end of the season.
The French Ski Federation has, however, transmitted some reassuring news from Alexis Pinturault.
