As in previous years, the floodlit Ski Cross World Cup took place on Monday evening in Arosa (Switzerland). The aces from South Tyrol went away empty-handed, but Azzurra had reason to be happy.

Ski cross access halted in Arosa in the canton of Graubünden on Monday, ahead of the eagerly awaited World Cup in San Candido (December 20 to 22). The third race of the season took place at the Winter Sports Resort under floodlights and in freezing cold. The ski ace from South Tyrol didn’t pick up the pace. Dominik Zuch, who was fourth at the start of the season in Val Thorens, was eliminated in the round of sixteen. Yannick Gansch survived round one, but then lost in the round of 16 like his teammates Simone Deromedis and Federico Tomassoni. Ultimately the best Italian was Edoardo Zorzi in 16th place.
Terence Chiknavorian (France) won the match by defeating Canada’s Reece Howden and David Moberg (Sweden) in a thrilling final. Germany’s Tim Hroneck had to settle for fourth place after failing to cross a gate correctly.
Universal Näslund victory
The dominant force in the women’s section, Sandra Naslund, once again dominated. The Swede, who is the record holder in the World Cup with 31 successes and has already won the first two races in Val Thorens, pipped Canadians Marielle Thompson and Daniela Maier from Germany for second and third. The sole Italian representative, Jolley Galli, fought her way into the semi-finals, where she was just eliminated. However, the sixth last place is something to be proud of.
