Laussane – Another “regular” day at the office for Jules Raybaud and Louise Trincaz (FRA), as they both claimed the victory at the ISMF Youth World Cup Jennerstier individual race. On the younger category, the U18, second win of the weekend for Switzerland’s Malik Uldry and Italy’s Silvia Boscacci.

The season has been solid for Jules Raybaud. European champion on Sprint, individual and mixed relays, and three gold medals on the Youth World Cup circuit so far, the young Frenchman delivered again today and proved that he can handle the pressure, as Hermann Debertolis crossed the finish line just 4 seconds behind him, one of the smallest margins this season. The bronze medal was for Simone Compagnoni (ITA), who finished also two seconds behind the two leaders.

With this victory, Raybaud consolidates his lead on the World rankings heading to the last Youth World Cup of the season, although the battle with Debertolis promises to be one for the records.

On the Women’s U20 category, Louise Trincaz delivered a masterclass of skimo at its best, opening a gap of over one minute with the second female on the finish line, Camille Maupoix (FRA). Trincaz stands with almost 100 points of a lead on the overall rankings, with just one more stop of the Youth World Cups to go. Bronze on the day was for Louanne Roussillon (FRA), whose third place today brings her to the third place on the overall rankings.

On the Men’s U18 category, it was again Malin Uldrik the strongest on the day, adding another gold medal to the one he got yesterday on the vertical race. The victory moves Uldrik to the first race on the overall rankings. Behind him, and sprinting on the finish line, it was the Italian duo of Lorenzo Milesi and Luca Curioni, in second and third respectively.

The younger females, U18, saw a podium sweep for Italy, with Silvia Boscacci claiming the victory, followed on the finish line by Melissa Bertolini and Vanessa Marca. Another fifth place today for Lynn Pollinger (SUI) allows her to stay on the provisional leadership of the overall rankings, but with Vanessa Marca at only 8 points of difference.
