Maria Riesch did not intend to sell his property. Winner of the little globe and world champion in the specialty, the Bavarian has shown sharp from the first slalom of the season Saturday in Finnish soil. Thus, the slalom in 24 years has conducted a first round almost perfect front to contain the onslaught of Global Agenda Credits in the second to keep eight hundredths ahead of American. The latter, which makes crossing the best time on the second drawn, has proven its qualities of slips had not flown during the summer and it will actually rely on it in pursuit of the big globe.
Behind Tanja Poutiainen was third time before his audience. Winner of the Global Agenda Items, the Finnish therefore continues to lead the race overall. It then Susanne Riesch, sister Maria, who finished off the podium, while Marlies Schield, back at the highest level after a white season following a double fracture tibia-fibula, took an encouraging sixth place. Disappointment however for Anja Pärson since Swedish is partly the fault of the top courses in the second round, which pushes a modest 24th place.
