|Maja Vidmar (interview) got her first victory in the Lead World Cup interrupting a positive serie of 6 victories in a row of Angela Eiter (interview)!
All our congratulations to Maja: we know that a victory was a personal target for her this year!
With still 2 legs to go, Angela Eiter is steadily first in the general lead world cup ranking with 680 points, where Maja Vidmar follows with 481.
Flavio Crespi, that won 3 legs this year, leads among the men with 529 points, followed by Ramon Puigblanque (466) and Cedric Lachat (430).
Just a small note: Alex Chabot, winner ex equo with Flavio Crespi in Marbella, didn't compete in Shanghai due to the open issue between him and the French Federation: this is without any doubt a bad thing for our sport and we hope that the situation will be sorted out as soon as possible.
Next leg in Valence (France) - 27/29 October.
