Frenchman Julien Lizeroux bags Kranjska Gora's slalom

Video by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2009-03-01

France's double world silver medallist Julien Lizeroux claimed victory in the World Cup slalom race at Kranjska Gora thanks to a perfect second run. This latest success in Slovenia is his second of the season after Kitzbuehel in January.

REUTERS - France's Julien Lizeroux produced a blistering second run to win a slalom in Kranjska Gora on Sunday and secure his second World Cup victory.

Lizeroux, who won silver medals in the slalom and super-combined at the world championships in Val d'Isere last month, jumped from fourth after the first run to take top spot in an overall time of one minute 40.11 seconds.

It was Lizeroux's second victory this season after his success in Kitzbuehel in January.

Italian Giuliano Razzoli was the fastest in the morning but had to settle for second place, 0.34 seconds adrift. It was his best result in a World Cup slalom, bettering his third place in Zagreb in January.

Germany's Felix Neureuther took advantage of another collective failure by the Austrians to steal third place, 0.56 off the pace.

Austria had to be content with four men in the top eight after their top slalom specialist, Reinfried Herbst, straddled a gate on the second run having clocked the second fastest time in the opening run.

Benjamin Raich missed a podium placing by 0.04 seconds but his fourth place moved the Austrian to within two points of Croat Ivica Kostelic in the World Cup overall standings.

A disastrous 25th after the first leg, Kostelic clocked the fastest second run time to finish 11th.

Next weekend's programme in Kvitfjell, Norway, with a downhill and a super-G on the schedule, will favour speed specialists like Swiss Didier Cuche and local hope Aksel Lund Svindal, who are still within reach of the overall crystal globe.
